Seth Thomas #12 for Ball Watch Co.
8 Day, weight driven, 14″ dial, jeweled escapement in custom design for Ball Watch Co. Walnut case with burl accents in outstanding original condition. A letter of provenance accompanies this clock stating that it belonged to Webb C Ball and was purchased from the Ball Watch and Clock store in Cleveland OH upon its closing in 1960.
*Note: This clock exhibits the same plugged holes that the Ball clock did in the RO Schmitt auction of Oct 2011, lot # 569. Thus, it is our belief that both the cases were purchased by Ball at the same time, and it was Ball himself who tried a different movement before settling with the Seth Thomas movement they both house now. Other than the above, the clock is in 100% original condition .

Seth Thomas Lunar circa 1894
Clock is all original with the following flaws: Winding chains and hour hand are replacements, and the two weights have been dented on the bottom, presumably from falling or being dropped. Movement, dial and finish are all original.
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.
