Request for information on 1800 Clock 1800

(cross-posted to several Fora)

I would like to know the current drawn and mechanism discharge time for the OE electro-mechanical Clock instrument fitted to early 1800 vehicles, for the purpose of including this in a Sw-Em.com tech article. These Clocks do discharge the vehicle Battery (albeit slowly) by this mechanism. These Clocks work by periodically energizing an internal micro-solenoid, which charges a spring-mechanism, which then powers a typical escapement clock-mechanism for a period of time until the spring is discharged, a contact is closed, activating solenoid again, repeating the sequence. If you have one of these Clocks, and it is functional, please measure and contact me with solenoid current, and duration until next charging. TIA!
