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.

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.

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!
