As a first approach to the study of untuned clock mechanisms, the physical behaviour of the verge-star wheel combination of the Lux clock mechanism was studied by means of a scaled-up model. Differential equations of motion for the motion were developed and solved. Curves showing typical motions were obtained. The dependence of equilibrium velocities or equilibrium time delays upon 1 applied torque, 2 star wheel moment of inertia, 3 verge moment of inertia, was studied.
