    Seth Thomas 124 chime correction devices

    Hello, there is one other option if the original chime correction mechanism is beyond repair. If you have access to a junk 124 movement with the later design, you can modify the movement with the later chime correction. I successfully have peformed this twice in the past when the original...

    Mayland chime with a Seth Thomas 124 movement

    In my research I learned that there was discussion of the Bugle chime rods in the Watch and Clock Bulletin Volume 52 in October 2010 on page 579. I also discovered this while looking at clocks for sale on Ebay from a reliable seller there. When I obtained my first one which is the same as the...

    Mayland chime with a Seth Thomas 124 movement

    This particular model along with the Chime 78 and 98 had optional "Bugle" chime rods available as well. You might want to check this out. I have a couple of clocks with these and there is a Utube video out there as well. These are rare chime rods.

    Back door for Seth Thomas Peer I am looking for a round, hinged back door for a Seth Thomas Peer. It likely fit on other models as well. The door is brass and is 4 1/4 inches in diameter and approximately 3 1/2 inches between the mounting holes. At this point, I am also considering other...

    Fusee clock

    I bought this and a Seth Thomas Parlor Calendar # 3 this weekend at a garage sale. I was extremely fortunate. I am trying to get some info on the Fusee and have not found anything at all. If anyone has any history, I would be thrilled. Thanks!

    French clock ID

    I was very lucky, I paid $160 for it and an Art Deco French hanging Westminster clock from the 1920's or 30's. Both are running but the Westminster clock has a spring that is broken or slipped off the arbor hook. It winds up about 5 turns before slipping so it only runs for a couple of days...

    French clock ID

    Thank you for the information, I really like this clock and was lucky to get this at a garage sale at a garage sale price. I have it running now and it is very accurate. I plan to disassemble and clean the movement later this week. I am amazed and how nice the condition is and that there is...

    French clock ID

    Hello, I just happened to come across this French clock at a garage sale today. The movement is not marked. The only information the seller had was he had been told it was from the 1870's. The numbers on the pendulum and movement match which is great. I am trying to find more information on...

    Seth Thomas Chime ID

    Here is the final product after cleaning the case, movement and polishing the bezel. Dang thing needed 5 bushings instead of one but it has been ticking away for a day now. I did discover 2 small unused holes on the right inside wall that could have been used to mount a balance wheel movement...

    Seth Thomas Chime ID

    Yes, I think the case may be exactly the same as the Lexington. But it does not appear that any holes have been filled or modified to accommodate the 124 and unfortunately there is not a label on the bottom. It wouldn't be the first time that one of these clocks is undocumented. It looks like...

    Seth Thomas Chime ID

    I just acquired this Seth Thomas chime clock that has a #124 movement. The hands are black serpentine. I cannot find it in Tran's book anywhere. I am pretty certain it is not a marriage. The holes for the movement and chimes line up and there are not any other holes. It also has the Mayland...
