Tubular clocks are temperamental and have rich sounding chimes while the tubular chime array creates a one-of-a-kind look.
Tubular movement is a clock movement that uses long steel tuned tubes to produce clear, vibrant, resonant chime melodies. Tiny hammers are striking the tubes that make more accurate pitch than the chime rods. The tubes have various lengths which produce different notes with a much deeper sound and resonate longer in comparison to a chime rod mechanical clock.
Normally, there will be 16 hammers and corresponding tubes in clocks with tubular movement. These clocks also have a different chime sequence. At the first quarter of an hour, the clock strikes once, then twice at half an hour, and three times at the third quarter-hour. The full selected chime melody will play at the hour which is followed by the striking of the matching hour.
Similarly to a chime rod mechanical clock, tubular mechanical clocks do not require batteries and should be wound every week with a key (a clock crank). In addition, the tubular chime array provides a unique aesthetic of the clock and looks impressive behind the pendulum.
