Seth Thomas Regulator No 2 - Original Catalogue Drawing 1904 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Catalogue Drawing - 1904
(St. Louis Clock and
Silverware Co.)

 

Here is a fine example of the much sought-after Regulator No. 2 that was widely used in commercial applications. This Seth Thomas model is in the hard-to-find walnut that we see only once or twice every few years or so and most have brass trimmings; this one is the exception with nickel and a damascened pendulum bob. Overall, the clock is in excellent physical and mechanical condition as you will see in the extensive photos below.

Physical: The walnut case measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 5"d has the original finish. The 12" diameter dial bears the original paint and there is a label in excellent original condition in the inside bottom of the case.

The nickel weight, damascened pendulum, and bezel were extra-cost options 115 years ago, are extremely desirable and provide a nice contrast to the walnut case. This clock has original hands, weight bob and bezel.

Mechanical: The rectangular movement is original to the clock, was recently professionally overhauled and is ready for years of great service. It is in excellent running order.

Comments: Wonderful, very scarce clock. Foundational to any serious collection and a great addition to any room just as a simple decorator piece. This particular clock is in such great condition with no excuses. Give us a call to start the process.

Seth Thomas “Jupiter” Regulator

Seth Thomas “Jupiter” ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Originating in the height of the Victorian era, this model was in the Seth Thomas 1894 catalogue for $60 and again in the 1910 catalogue, and apparently did not appear in the subsequent 1912 catalogue. The Jupiter, which also features a subsidiary moon-phase dial, is wound by pulling down the center chains.

We often find it interesting to compare clocks from different CT clockmaking firms with clocks bearing similar design features from the same era. In this case the one that comes immediately to mind is the Ansonia "Hanging Antique", c. 1904. Though the Ansonia clock "out-glitzes" the earlier Seth Thomas model, numerous similarities are easily recognizable, right down to the acorns on the ends of the chain. Here's a link just so you can make your own observations with the clocks side-by-side!

Physical: The oak case, which measures 19"w x 59"h x 8"d, has just been professionally rubbed out and waxed with Breewax. It looks wonderful and is in excellent physical condition. The 12" diameter dial and subsidiary moon dial retain the original finish and are both in excellent physical condition. All the pressed brass ornamentation, including three "Jenny Lind" heads is present and is in excellent physical condition. The weights and cast brass pendulum bob are original to the clock as are the finials on top. There are some dings on the top covers of the fluted weights that have been turned so you can see them. Rotating them may improve the look. Our consignor is investigating with a metalsmith whether he can straighten them somewhat (no promises).

Most of this model are missing the wood acorns on the bottoms of the chains, but they are present on this one. The glass in the dial door is also original.

It is not unusual on this model for the door latch to have been lost along the way and to find a clock with a retrofitted cabinet latch. This clock has the correct latch as you can see in the photo in the column to the left. Click here to see one that has been replaced. Attention-to-detail sets our clocks apart from the often pedestrian masses!

Mechanical: The eight-day, weight-driven, time and bell-strike, chain-wound movement has been professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition. It is stamped with the Seth Thomas logo.The moon dial advances one position each day and operates correctly. The clock strikes a large cup bell that is located above the movement.

Comments: Take a close look at the photos: this is a stunning clock. As this clock was part of a trade deal we got an incredible price and are passing it on to you. We sold last one in 2014 for $9,450. We look forward to hearing from you... and we'll arrange the shipping!

Waterbury Regulator No. 7 - Original Catalogue Drawing 1891 - Antique Clocks Guy

(1891 Catalogue Drawing)

 

One of the most sought after of the "big cats" of the Waterbury Clock Co, this particular model was sold with two different pendulum configurations, one with a "lyre" and the alternative with the mercurial pendulum. In this case you may choose as we have both of the Waterbury pendulums: your choice based on your personal preference

M
ost of this elaborate model were oak (less expensive), but a few had the special cherry or walnut with burl you see here on the front and on the the backboard inside the case. This particular clock is in spectacular condition.

Physical: The case, which measures 25.5"w x 82"h x 11"d is in excellent physical condition with original glass. It was refinished at some point way in the past. The 12" porcelain dial is original, in excellent condition, and features a sweep seconds hand. The mercurial pendulum pendulum and brass weight are original to the case and in excellent condition. Glasses are original, too.

Waterbury Regulator No. 7 in Burled Walnut - Antique Clocks Guy

Mechanical: The original Swiss-made pinwheel escapement, eight-day, time-only "jeweler's regulator" movement was just professionally overhauled. It is in excellent running order and ready for years of great service to you and your family. Waterbury, like other American clockmaking firms, imported these precise timekeeping jeweler's regulator movements from Switzerland. This mechanism is enclosed in an iron box that helps keep dust out.

Another wonderful feature on this mercurial pendulum is that the mercury is sealed inside the nickel-plated cylinders that fit into the pendulum frame (they look brass-colored here because of reflection but are nickel-plated). This is how many of the high-end E.Howard mercurial pendulums were constructed for safety and efficiency. There is an additional photo in the links below that shows the end of one of the cylinders. This configuration eliminates any worry about broken jars, spilled mercury or having to load "mercury jars" upon arrival of the clock. Mercurial pendulums with the invar rod are far less susceptible to the effects of humidity change that effects timekeeping. Add that to the precision pinwheel movement and you have a recipe here for precision.

Comments: As you can see in the photos, this is an exceptional clock just waiting for its matching exceptional home. Are you ready for those "oohs" and "ahs" of "spectacularity"? We also worked a spectacular price deal on this clock. We sold the last one like this that we had (in walnut/burl) for $12,500 in 2016 with a lyre pendulum. This one was part of a trade and we are passing on the resulting savings to you. The original price of this clock with the lyre pendulum in 1891 was $110 and $148.50 with the mercurial pendulum; it's a little more in today's market!

Shipping: We will make arrangements with one of our professional blanket-wrap movers to pick up the clock and deliver it to you. We have you pay them directly so we are not marking up those fees. They are long-experienced, highly efficient and treat our treasures as if they were their own.

SFRR Seth Thomas Regulator 19
( Pending Listing )

SFRR Seth Thomas Regulator No. 19 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Because of of the high demand and extremely limited supply of Railroad clocks that are not reproductions (tons of those out there – be careful), we seldom have these clocks to offer, and we have a list of people who have been seeking them for some time.

The purpose of this posting
is encourage qualified buyers, if interested, to contact us immediately.
 

This is a Santa Fe Railroad Regulator No. 19, one of the real crown jewels of the Seth Thomas Clock Company that was used in very high-end installations because of its precision timekeeping capabilities.

This model was also used by the railroads and generally found in offices or back rooms where precise time was vital to operations and frequently checked by railroad personnel. We understand that this particular clock came from the El Dorado, KS railroad station and has been in the consignor's possession for many years.

The Seth Thomas Regulator No. 19 measures 23"w x 73"h x 9"d and has a 12-inch diameter dial. We have seen this model sell for over $100,000, though the current market does not reflect such a high value.

We have a whole page about the Montgomery Dial used by the SFRR in our Reference Library that you will find fascinating.

We are awaiting a complete set of high-quality photos of this clock that we will post in a couple of weeks when our consignor is able to obtain them. We know that there are people on our search list and others who would be delighted to own this high-end clock so we have posted this "pending listing" notification. Please contact us if you have a serious interest and can complete a purchase immediately.

Welch Khedive - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Over the years we've only had a couple of this much sought-after model from E.N. Welch to sell. Most that we've seen have been in oak. This one is substantially better looking in mahogany and comes with the exposed escapement dial and with the original gilding on the beveled glass panel that the pendulum hangs behind.

Physical: The mahogany case measures 12"w x 17.5"h x 4.5"d and retains its original finish. There is a very small and typical hairline crack between V-VI on the 4.5" diameter original porcelain dial with exposed escapement. A Q-tip with a little bleach on it will lighten the crack and make it less visible.


Mechanical: The catalogue describes this "Patti" movement as, " Fine solid steel cut movement, hour and half-hour strike, cathedral bell, visible escapememt, jeweled pallets." The movement in this clock has recently been professionally serviced and is in excellent running order. The wide, flat cathedral gong produces a deep resonant tone as it strikes on the half hour and hour.

Comments: These don't come along often and always sell quickly, so make your move if you've been seeking either this specific model or a fancy small shelf clock of the highest quality.

Packing/Shipping: The UPS Store will pack and ship this clock for you – you pay them directly for their services. This particular store has LOTS of clock-packing experience.
