Seth Thomas REgulator No. 16 - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Original Catalogue Drawing

Perhaps the most sought after of the big Seth Thomas wall regulators is Regulator No. 19 and its immediate predecessor, Regulator 16. This is the earlier of the two models. They had essentially the same case, except Reg 16 at 9" in depth is not quite as deep of a case as Reg. 19. Both clocks were used in major railroad stations and in high-end commercial establishments as well as by jewelers across the country because of their very precise timekeeping.

Physical: The stunning walnut case measures 13"w x 75"h x 9"d and is in excellent physical condition as you can see in the detailed photos below. The exterior finish was professionally restored in 2019 by one of the top restoration guys on the West Coast.

The 12" dial, hands, nickel bezel, weight, pulley and beat scale are all original. In addition, there is a good condition label in the bottom inside and it has a wonderful damascened pendulum.

Mechanical: The eight-day, retaining-power, graham pallets movement beats seconds with a large sweep seconds hand. It was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent running order, ready for years of precise timekeeping for you.

Comments: Fabulous clock, great condition, fair price. Call us!

Gallery clocks have always been popular among collectors and those just seeking a simple, but traditional clock for decorator purposes. They were generally used in banks, commercial installations and schools. We're not sure where this one spent most of its life but its condition makes it clear that it led a charmed prior life free of any abuse or harmful environment. Nice!

Physical: The Seth Thomas 16" diameter solid oak case is in excellent physical condition and has the original finish.


There is a door on the bottom to access the pendulum. The 12" diameter dial is in fabulous condition and has the original paint. Charmed life.

Mechanical: The eight-day No. 41A (workhorse) time-only movement is in excellent mechanical condition. We just had it professionally overhauled including two new bushings so it is a great runner you will be able to count on for years to come.

Seth Thomas put a dial support board behind the dial on many of its models. Often, lazy repair people did not bother to reinstall it when they finished their service work. But this clock does have the original dial support board (see photo).

Comments: Absolutely great clock that will be problem-free and reliable. Also bargain-priced! Please call us to start the process.

Here is a circa 1913 clock that we have never seen before because they are quite rare. Back then, this clock cost $325 which would be $8,247 in 2019 dollars! It is a beautiful Seth Thomas Hall Chime Clock No. 2274 with a special Sonora Chime movement. Read below for more details, listen to the recording, then give us a call to make it your own!

Physical: The clawfoot mahogany case with exquisite trimmings, including cast brass escutcheons, measures 27"w x 98"h x 15"d. It has recently been professionally restored by the folks we use for high-end clocks and is in excellent physical condition.

The silvered 12" dial has just been refinished by leading dial-painter, Leslie Neff-Hernandez. The rotating moon dial is original and is also in excellent physical and mechanical condition.

The upper glass is original and the lower was replaced at some point in the past. The elegant finials are original to the clock as are the weights and pendulum.

Mechanical: This clock features the high-grade 8-day Seth Thomas movement No. 74 hall clock movement. It chimes the Westminster tune ever 15 minutes on four "Sonora" patented deep-toned resonated bells and strikes the hours on a large cathedral bell.

Comments: Sonora Chime clocks from Seth Thomas have long been best sellers because of their sonorous chime tone. Usually, they are found in 4-, 5-, or 8-bell configurations with the price escalating for each additional bell. In the shelf clock versions there are actually two mechanisms inside that both get wound, one for the clock and the second for the chiming mechanism.

But, to find a Sonora chime in a tallcase clock is very rare. This one has been completely refurbished and is in excellent physical and mechanical condition and promises to bring sweet joy wherever you decide to place it in your home or office. Give us a call to start the process.

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?

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!

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!
