Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2, c.1922 - Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue)

 

Here is an all-original later configuration of the much sought-after Seth ThomasRegulator No. 2 (both links take you to historical background) that was made starting from the early 1920s to the 1940s.

Regulator No. 2 is the most collected of American weight-driven clocks and was copied by other (envious) makers. There were multiple configurations of this clock as you can see in the chart. This is one of the versions with the "single bottom". Generally, when we find one of these, at the very least, the dial is flaking or has been stripped and repainted. Not so here...

Physical:
The Oak case is in exceptional condition and measures 36.5"h (note, it is slightly longer than the triple-bottom models) x 16"w x 5.5"d. It has the original finish (may have been overcoated in the past - hard to tell), glass, weight and pendulum.

The 12" diameter dial is in excellent original condition with the original paint.

Mechanical: The eight-day, Graham dead-beat, retaining-power, time-only movement is in excellent running order.

Comments: If simplicity of design is an important criteria to you, this might be an excellent choice in classic-designed American regulators. Or, perhaps you have a triple-bottom No.2 and would like one of each case design; if so, this is a great choice. Or, if you're just seeking a nice American weight-driven clock, perhaps it is calling, "Choose me!" The price is certainly right... and this is the nicest of this particular model that we've ever offered in the past 23+ years online.

Note: This model was shipped

"moon" format hands, the latter being more desirable.

Early Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2  in Rosewood ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is a nice example of an early Seth Thomas Regulator 2. The case is rosewood and "grained" rosewood and is in excellent overall condition.

The Seth Thomas Company manufactured clocks in Plymouth Hollow CT through 1864, when the "Hollow" was renamed "Thomastown" to honor the then-deceased Seth Thomas, who had been the primary employer in the area. In 1875 the town of Thomastown was officially incorporated.

It is difficult to know exactly when this clock was manufactured as it matches a catalogue drawing we have from 1879, though that is some fifteen years after the township name change. We believe it's earlier. Seth Thomas continued to use up parts inventory after the name change. It's all a mystery, but there's no mystery in saying this is a nice example of the species!

Physical: The rosewood case, which appears to have the original finish and glass, measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 4.5"d and is in excellent overall condition. The weight baffle, which slides up to reveal the weight, has the original label on it that is in excellent (age-appropriate) condition. The (faded) "beat" marker on the inside bottom appears to be hand-drawn, typical of some very early clocks of this era. There is minor wear to the gilding around the edge of the lower door.

The 12" painted dial is in excellent overall condition and (best guess) also appears to have the original paint. There is a beautiful reverse-painted black and gilt lower glass with floral surround and a country-like scene at the top that is almost Asian in effect.
The upper glass has blemishes which leads us to believe it is original. Not sure about the lower glass.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only deadbeat, retaining-power, weight-driven movement is in excellent running order and original to the clock.


Comments: We've owned this clock for five-plus years and can testify to its mechanical condition and time-keeping prowess. Changing inventory dictates that we now part with it; our loss, your gain. Priced right, too! Give us a call to start the process.

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!

Ithaca Hanging Library No. 6 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

original catalogue

 

We have not in our previous 23+ years had the opportunity to present this wonderful and unique Ithaca model nor have we seen one. It is presently hanging in our home and it's absolutely beautiful. Runs great, too!

Physical: The solid walnut case, which measures 11.75"w x 32.5"h x 4.5"d is in excellent condition and features the ORIGINAL FINISH. The 6" time and 8" calendar dials as well as the rollers are in excellent condition and appear to be original. The little serpentine horizontal piece just below the time dial has a locking knob that facilitates accessibility to the pendulum, either to install or restart the clock. Cool feature!
For shipping, the crown lifts off.

The original backs on these clocks are often found in very poor condition. In this particular case the back is a piece of plywood very professionally made and installed long before our consignor owned the clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-strike mechanism was serviced in the past six months and is in excellent mechanical condition. The wire gong is a little bit "clangy" so we've wound only the time (right) side. Runs great and the calendar functions correctly as well.

This clock originally also had an alarm but, like most alarm movements it died and was long ago removed, so the winding arbor on the calendar dial is not used. No loss as they were unpredictable and also clangy.

Comments: We have a great set of photos of this clock. Enjoy them and give us a call to make it your own; you'll be very pleased with this clock!

Waltham Presentation Banjo, c.1930 - Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here's a classic "Gilt Rope" Waltham presentation banjo from the 1930s era, reminiscent of a much earlier period in American clockmaking featuring a pastoral scene instead of fighting war ships or historical buildings. Charming!

Physical: The mahogany case, which measures 10.25"w x 42"h x 4"d is in excellent overall condition and bears the ORIGINAL FINISH. The Waltham-signed 7" dial bears the ORIGINAL PAINT and is in excellent condition. The case has also been cleaned and polished. All parts are original to the clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day, weight-driven, time-only movement with deadbeat escapement and retaining-power was recently professionally serviced and restrung and is in excellent running
order. Unusual to this clock is that the weight is factory-threaded to accept a retention bolt from the back for shipping purposes.

Comments:
This is a model we've only seen once before. Original cost was $97.30... a bit more expensive today! Very attractive and ready for that special place in your home or office.

Seth Thomas "Flora" - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue

 

Here's a beautiful and much sought-after Seth Thomas "Flora" model that is one of only a few of these we've had to offer since we began our online business over twenty-three years ago. This was built in the period when the firm was building its finest clocks. Of solid cherry, it's in the most desirable of the woods from which this model was made and is a real beauty. Be sure to check the classic hand-carved floral design on the sides from which it derives its name.

Physical: The very interesting cherry case, which measures 12.5"w x 38"h x 7.5"d is in excellent overall condition, with original finish on the case and original glass.
The 8" diameter dial retains the original paint and is in excellent, age-appropriate condition.

An original Seth Thomas label in the bottom inside of the case is in age-appropriate condition. Hands, bob, weights,like the rest of this clock, are all original.


Mechanical: The eight-day, double-weight, mellow time-and-cathedral-gong-strike, retaining-power movement was recently serviced and re-strung and is in excellent running order – ready for years of great service for you.

The movement is marked "Seth Thomas" and "Thomaston Conn" and the number 171/4. The original catalogue noted that this was a "new and superior movement."

Comments: As noted above, this model is difficult to find, especially in all original condition. If you're seeking an unusual and highly desirable Seth Thomas to add to your collection – or perhaps for just a single decorative clock – this would be a perfect choice.

(original catalogue)

 

Here's another clock that we've never had available to us to offer to you in our 23 years online, the Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar No. 6, this one in Walnut, circa 1882-1887.

Physical: The walnut case (also offered in oak and old oak starting in 1888) measures 27"h x 14.5"w x 5.75"d and is in very good physical condition. It was refinished at some point in the past. The case also has the original glass top and bottom. Both dials are in excellent condition.

The 8" clock dial was restored by our favorite dial-painter, Lesley Fernandez; the calendar dial is original. The clock dial has the ST logo + U.S.A. + Pat Dec 28, 1875 (which matches the stamp on the movement). The calendar says Patent Date Feb 15, 18.. (last two digits faded and could perhaps be seen with a black light).

There is a calendar directions label on the inside of the door.

Mechanical: The time-and strike clock movement was professionally cleaned and oiled recently and is in excellent mechanical condition.It strikes the hours on a coiled gong; after 1888 this model struck a cup bell instead of the gong. The R.T. Andrews-design perpetual calendar mechanism was professionally overhauled and is in excellent operating condition.

Comments: Such an interesting looking clock and in such great shape physically and mechanically. A great addition to a calendar collection or as a general decor piece. Call us to start the process and get it enroute to you via The UPS Store.

Chelsea “Vanderbilt” Ships Bell Desk Clock ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

Here's an extraordinary little Chelsea ship's wheel desk clock with a ship's bell movement for your consideration. This model was introduced by Chelsea in 1937The "Vanderbilt" name has a connotation of wealth attached to it. Can't you just imagine this little clock sitting perhaps on the corner of a small writing desk in the Commodore's mansion... or yours?

Physical: The yellow brass case, which measures 7" high with a 3.75" silvered dial, has recently been polished and re-lacquered to preserve its sheen. It is in excellent overall physical condition.

Mechanical: The eight-day ship's bell movement was recently overhauled by a professional watchmaker. It is in excellent mechanical condition and the ship's bell feature works correctly.

Comments: Very clean little clock; ready for years of great service for you. Call or e-mail to start the process!

Ship From So. CA

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here's a hefty mantle clock of which we've only had one before. It is the Seth Thomas "Hotel" model, a real beauty. Be sure to look at the detailed closeup photos of the side of this clock. We've seen some that are missing the side panels and have some fru-fru stuck in there instead. This one's the real McCoy.

Physical: The Walnut case measures 14" w x 18"h x 7"d and is in excellent physical condition, having recently been restored by a leading restorer in "Lost" Angeles! The painted dial is original to the clock and bears the original paint. Most Seth Thomas clocks of this vintage have long ago had the paint start to crackle and/or peel, so enjoy this completely original dial!

Mechanical: The heavy spring-driven, eight-day time and gong-strike movement was recently professionally serviced and is ready for years of great service for you. The original Seth Thomas catalogue described this particular mechanism as a "Superior Movement"!

Comments: Most American mantle clocks we see don't do much for us, but this clock is one of those rare exceptions. From the detail on the front door, typical to Seth Thomas of that era, to the detailed carving on the side, this clock is a real visual delight. Perhaps it belong on the credenza behind your desk in the office?

Ship From So. CA


(original catalogue drawing)

 

Here is a clock we've not had available but twice in the past 23 years that we've been in business. There were two different sizes of this model that were made, this being the smaller. The only one of the larger model we've ever seen is this one that was made for the Self-Winding Clock Co. Big, impressive (EXTRAORDINARILY expensive clock)!

Physical: The solid oak case measures 34"h x 15"w x 5"d and is in excellent physical condition, retaining the original finish. The glasses are original and there is slight discoloration in the red of the lower glass. The 12" diameter dial retains the original paint.

Mechanical: The
eight-day time-only, deadbeat, maintaining power movement was recently professionally overhauled and is in excellent mechanical condition. A rear mounting screw to the movement was apparently lost at some point in the past and four side-mounting tabs were added to hold the movement in place as is frequent with other models. A new rear mounting screw was added.

Comments: This is an awesome and popular Howard model that's quite difficult to find most of the time. One other nice thing is that, unlike most E.Howard clocks, at 34"h this will fit into most wall spaces without overpowering the surrounding. Great clock!

NOTE ABOUT THE PHOTOS: These photos were taken at different times by two different people (including us) and at different times of the day. The orangish-colored wall behind causes light to refract and make getting a perfect color match very difficult... just sayin'.
