In the 21 years since we started our online business, this is only the second one of this Seth Thomas model that we've ever had available to us. If we weren't still in the midst of a new front yard and exterior painting, this clock would be hanging in our home. It is a marvelous piece of art!

There were eight different versions of Seth Thomas clocks of about this same size all that used the moniker "Regulator No. 1". Two had "extra" appended to the model name. It would be fun to own one of each! This one is by far our favorite of them all. Seth Thomas followed Regulator No. 1 with the most popular of all its clocks, even today, the Regulator No. 2.

Physical: The oak "keyhole" case, which measures 15"w x 34"h x 5"d is in excellent physical condition. It was returned recently from our old-world restoration shop with restored varnish and new life breathed back in; it looks absolutely superb.


The 12" painted dial is in excellent condition with the original paint. The label, glass, weight, pendulum bob and hands are also all original to the clock. There is also an original label in the curved bottom of the clock.

Mechanical: The very popular eight-day, time-only Seth Thomas No. 77 trapezoidal movement (as used in many popular models) has recently been professionally overhauled and is in excellent mechanical condition ready for years of great service to you.

Comments: This, in our opinion, is one of the cream-of-the-crop Seth Thomas regulators. Seldom seen, highly sought. Will it grace your wall?

Catalogue Drawing

 

We have waited a several years to have another Seth Thomas Office Calendar No. 11 available to us. They are extremely difficult to find as most families do not pass them on except within the family unit. Now, our find can become your most treasured clock!

Seth Thomas made a handful of clocks using this cabinet but without a calendar and with both large and smaller movements. They were an extraordinarily entrepreneurial organization focused on giving the customer exactly what they wanted, even if it meant making a "one-off". Customer service? What a concept...

Physical: The cherry and burl case, which measures 26"w x 68.5"h x 7"d is in excellent physical condition. The finish is original and was recently rubbed out and polished. The glass is original as are the calendar rollers, damascened pendulum and weight.

The 14" dials have the original paint. There is an original label inside behind the calendar movement and one in the base, and a remnant label on the inside of the door.

Mechanical: The clock movement was recently overhauled and the calendar movementserviced. Both are in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is a great opportunity to own a rarely seen clock that generally would remain hidden in a collection somewhere. Please review the photos we have below... and then ask your spouse for permission!

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here is a seldom-seen full-sized Chelsea banjo with a ship's bell-strike movement. Simon Willard, member of a noted line of Massachusetts clockmakers inspired this skillfully executed reproduction of his original clock. The Chelsea marine-grade ship's bell movement and selected hand-rubbed mahogany of the case combine to make this clock an ultimate achievement of the clockmaker's art; a legacy of pride in American craftsmanship.

At the turn of the 19th century when homes were furnished more luxuriously, Willard's clocks provided a classic design with mechanical excellence.

Here's what the original catalogue said:

"In every respect, a fine reproduction of Simon Willard's 'improved timepiece', patented in 1802. The case is hand-rubbed mahogany, with polished brass trim. THe glass panels are authentic reverse hand-painted, in oil colors. Movements: 8-day, springwound 11 jewels."

Physical: The full-sized (not 3/4) mahogany case measures 10"w x 43"h x 3.5"d and is in excellent condition with original finish. There is a small (old) repair on the tail noted in the photo of the base of the clock (gotta look for it to notice).

The 7" diameter dial is in excellent condition and had the original paint.

The hand-painted throat and tablet glasses are original an both in excellent physical condition. The tablet features the very popular War of 1812 amazing battle between the USS Constitution and the French frigate HMS Guerriere (we prevailed)!

There is a stamp at the bottom of the base inside that we can only read the last letters " - - ZZANO". Not sure what it says or what it represents!

Mechanical:
The eight-day ship's bell movement was recently professionally lubricated and adjusted and is in excellent mechanical condition. The signed movement bears serial number 717441 which puts its date of manufacture in 1968 (see date chart on Chelsea Reference Library page).

Comments: Great clock, fabulous condition. Difficult to find. Ready for you!
