This is my most recent purchase,havent received it yet but for $49.00 it was worth the chance.
The owner said it would only run if it was out of level on the wall.

Sounds like a simple adjustment to the crutch wire is in order to get it to run when level on the wall. However, it might need a good cleaning, oiling, and general maintenance. Something to think about.

Bruce for 50 bucks you did ok.I have a couple japanese clocks and i like them.
Does not sound like a difficult repair.
As was said, likely too a clean and oil.

Thank you gentlemen,the proof will be in the pudding when I pop the dial.....I have other Japanese clocks and I think they are both undervalued and overlooked.
Thanks again for your thoughts.

Well the clock arrived today and it was superbly packed.............I removed it from the box and it weighs " a ton " the case is solid oak,not one bit of veneer and not a blemish or a dent/split.
The movement is most assuredly Seikosha and the plates are nice and thick.Movement is a little dirty and the bushings at first blush look ok.
Put it on the wall and adjusted the crutch and it is ticking with a strong beat.
The bezel hinge is a little weak but fixable,the interior label is about 98% and the door tablet reads Trademark (curved) then below it in large letters is the name LION.
Charlie if your out there this clock will be "attending" your class in the very near future.
As I said before,these clock are overlooked and undervalued.............

Bruce: Sounds like a winer. I own a Seikosha steeple clock and it works very well. The movement is every bit as good a s an American from the same period. After all, they copied us!

Bruce, looks like a very attractive clock, regardless of it's origins. Should be worth restoring.
