Seth Thomas "Garfield" - Origina Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy(original catalogue drawing

 

The Seth Thomas Garfield and its companion, the Lincoln have consistently been the most popular shelf clocks we've ever sold, and we've sold LOTS of them. Here for your consideration is a beautiful Garfield. But this one is a bit of a rare bird as it is only the second spring-driven clock of this model that we've ever seen in our 24+ years in business. RARE, as in try to find another one!

Physical:
The original finish mahogany case is in fabulous physical condition (we'd usually say "excellent" but this is literally the as nice an "unmessed-with" finish on this model that we've seen)!

The case measures 15.5"w x 29.5"h x 6.5"d. The 8" diameter dial is also in excellent condition with original paint. The glass is original, and there is an excellent label in the bottom of the case. Nice.

Mechanical: The spring-driven, eight-day movement was just lubricated and is in excellent running order ready for years of great service.

Comments: This is a wonderful clock that should be in your collection, especially if you are a Seth Thomas collector. Might also look great on a credenza at work! Get the clock bug (not the other one)? Please give us a call to start the process.

NOTE: We have both spring- and weight-driven versions of this model presently available. Maybe you should buy both!

The Seth Thomas Garfield and its companion, the Lincoln have consistently been the most popular shelf clocks we've ever sold over the past 24+ years. Here is a beautiful ALL ORIGINAL Garfield for your consideration.

Physical:
The original finish mahogany case is in excellent physical condition – a "cream puff" as our knowledgeable consignor described it. The clock measures 15.5"w x 38"h x 6.5"d
. The 8" diameter dial is also in excellent condition with the original paint. The original weights are nickel as is the bezel.

Note the original nickel damascened pendulum bob. The glass is original as well, and there is an "aged" label in the bottom of the case.

Mechanical: The two-weight, eight-day time-and-strike movement was recently professionally disassembled, cleaned and re-strung and is in excellent running condition.

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 case was sold with two different pendulums, the most popular being this with the "lyre" configuration (which fits the case much better than the jar version), and most commonly in oak. This is the first one we've ever had in cherry burl. It is in spectacular original condition, having just been professionally French-polished by our restoration experts.

Physical: The cherry with burl case is all original, retains its beautiful original finish, and measures 22.5"w x 82"h x 11"d. There is no new wood in evidence. It is in excellent physical condition with original side glass and we believe a replaced front glass. The 12" porcelain dial is original, in excellent condition, and features a sweep seconds hand. The lyre pendulum and brass weight are original to the case and in excellent condition.

Mechanical: The original heavy-duty eight-day, time-only pinwheel jeweler's regulator movement (iron-cased) was recently completely overhauled by one of the top technicians on the West Coast. It is in excellent running order and ready for years of great service to you and your family.

Comments: As you can see in the myriad of photos below, this is an exceptional clock just waiting for its matching exceptional home. Are you ready for the "oohs" and "ahs" of "spectacular" in your home or office? Give us a call to start the process.

Questions: Contact us by phone at , or by e-mail.


Photos Note: It is extremely difficult to photograph these large clocks and get them lit equally throughout the clock - especially so when they are in a corner close to other dark objects as was this clock. Our consignor did his best! The photo in the left column above is a fairly close representation of how the clock appears to the eye; some other photos make it look much redder than the eye perceive due to the flash... sorry.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 Reissue
c.1977

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 Reissue, c.1977 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 Reissue, c.1977 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Ship From Vista CA

The Seth Thomas clock called "Regulator No. 2" was introduced in the early to mid 1860s and produced until 1950, likely the only clock with such a length of production. Original selling price is unknown, but by 1873, the price was $16 and when production ended it was priced at $110. The timepiece with its 12” dial and long wooden case is handsome on any wall. Read the Seth Thomas detailed history in the first link above and more about Regulator No. 2 in the second link.

The No. 2 was again reissued in 1976. In a limited-production run, only four thousand were manufactured. Each had a series-numbered label on the inside bottom of the case. As you can see, this particular clock is number 3095 of 4,000.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 Reissue, c.1977- Antique Clocks Guy

At this time, Seth Thomas was a division of General Time, a Talley industries company. The reissue model was advertised in the “Mart” publication of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) and has been a popular clock ever since then. Unlike the originals, which had veneered bezels that can lift or peel over time, the reissue features a solid oak bezel. It also utilizes a ST-marked movement copied from the old Seth No. 61 rectangular movement.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 Reissue, c.1977- Antique Clocks Guy

We are fortunate to have a scanned copy of the original Installation Instructions that were shipped with this model in PDF form (click above).

Physical: The case, which measures 36"h x 15.5"w x 5"d is in excellent original condition, retaining the original finish on the case and the original paint on the dial. Glasses are original, too.

Mechanical: The No 61 eight-day, time-only rectangular movement was recently completely overhauled, including polishing all pivots and is running like a champ. Hang it up and you can count on it doing the same for you for years.

Comments: Over 23 years that we've been in business, we've only had several of these available to us. Each has sold almost instantly. This one is ready to ship to you tomorrow.

Here's your opportunity to own a real Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 for about half of what the great older ones bring. And we personally think the cases with solid bezels are a lot nicer and a lot less likely to have problems down the road like the older ones. Take a look at the photos below, then it's time, already. Give us a call to make it your own!
