Cuckoo clock information needed

8 day Regula E. Schmeckenbecher

I recently found two cuckoo clocks at a yard sale. The only things they're missing are the pendulums, and chain weights that I can tell.

The first one is an E.Schmeckenbecher-8 day Regula, the other is a D. Hones Titisee-Neustadt, Regula. This one is missing a chain.

Do these just need the pendulums, and weights to function? I am not savvy at all with clocks and would appreciate your help.

Thank you,

Mine has the weights but no pendulum. The way the clock works is that the weights (there are usually 2 or 3) move the mechanics along. The pendulum is what regulates how fast or slow the movement is. The weights are what is used instead of a winding mechanism. For your clock to move, you need at least one weight (on the time keeping chain) and for it to keep accurate time you need the pendulum.
