Wall Clocks

Waterbury Regulator #53

Quartered oak case with duel weight time only movement, original hands, glass, and dial paint. Finish is finely crazed and overall in very good condition. It’s two minor flaws are someone lost the original screws holding on the dial which have been replaced with pan head. The lower right hand applied circular decoration has been reproduced along one of the small balls. The only problem was the cabinetmaker used maple instead of oak. Most people would not even notice these small imperfections.

 Waterbury Regulator #7 (circa 1891)

This is an excellent example of one of Waterbury’s top of the line clocks. Its overall condition is excellent with a cherry case and mercurial pendulum original. There are no hairline cracks in the porcelain dial and the case is original throughout, as are the hands and glass, with a finely crazed finish. An outstanding example.

Seth Thomas Regulator #3

100% as found condition, Rosewood case in original alligatored finish, two nickel plated weights that run the rare time strike movement and a beautiful nickel damascene pendulum bob make it stand out from other #3’s that are commonly found. The dial could use slight touch up or could be left as is. A rare example of a chiming #3.

Seth Thomas Regulator #1 Extra

Rosewood case looks to have had one repair to the wooden bezel and the top of the case refinished. The dial paint looks to have been re-finished but on close inspection is original! The best we have seen on a Seth Thomas clock. The label on the inside is 100% along with its paper beat scale. An outstanding example of this model. Formally from the Wasserman Collection.
