    Pendulum wire has two notches on it that hook in to the movement.
    This so far is the best picture of the movement unless you think I should take it apart to get a better one.

      Looks like a genuine antique clock to me. The Willards signed the clock's dial face. Although your clock's face has lost some paint, I don't see any trace of a Willard signature. See this example: https://www.skinnerinc.com/auctions/2857M/lots/279 You can also see that his name is stamped in the movement's brass plate. Chances are, you won't be able to closely inspect the movement without further disassembly of the clock.

      I could be wrong but my suspicion at this time is that your clock was manufactured by another company which named a line of Banjo Clocks after the Willard family since Simon is said to have invented/designed the first so-called Banjo Clock.

      Thanks for all of the additional photos. No doubt they'll help us. I'll certainly keep an eye out for more information.
