The difficultly in setting the Going is, I think, due to air currents up and down the pendulum chamber. If air is flowing upwards then drag reduces effective g and in addition the amplitude increases. Both these effects slow the clock down. It may be that there is a switch between upflow in spring (warm air rises) and downflow in autumn (cold air is heavy). Note the step change in going around mid November.
