Hal, It's often buried in out-of-print horological books or magazines / journals / articles that google may or may not index. I have some ADEV examples here: http://www.leapsecond.com/pages/m21/ -- the classic Navy chronometer http://www.leapsecond.com/pend/shortt/ -- see Stable32 / Timelab plots http://www.leapsecond.com/pend/clockb/ -- go to technical links http://www.leapsecond.com/hsn2006/ -- see dream pendulum paper > I'd expect a watch to slow down slightly as the spring unwinds. That > probably doesn't apply to clocks driven by weights.
