Explanation: Of course, the "English lead weights" are the thingees (correct technical term) that power the clock.
The 'correct style' would be matching the period of the clock. That is, a cuckoo clock would have different shape weights from a modern grandfather clock. So, the style of the weight would be appropriate to the style of the clock.
My take on it from the USA.
