    Seth Thomas Clock

    Ted, thanks for your reply. I feel the same way you do. My clock is priceless. And thanks in particular for your great advice on how I could go about the restoration process. Makes perfect sense. I am so glad to get your recommendation on some place to get the dial restored. As far as movements...

    Seth Thomas Clock

    Gentlemen. I'm sorry. I didn't realize that this isn't the place to discuss values. I really have no idea what the clock might be worth nor does it really matter. I'll be keeping it while I'm alive and fully expect one of my daughters or grandkids to do the same into the future. I was just...

    Seth Thomas Clock

    Thanks Peter and Ron. At least 154 years old. That's how my bones feel most days! And to my surprise, once I hung the weights on their correct side (per the instructions that are printed on the clock label) the clock runs just fine. But I do agree that the clock should still be serviced. If...

    Seth Thomas Which Weight is For Time Keeping?

    I have attached photos of the clock that was recently handed down to me. I would love to know more about it, including its approximate age and value. It will run for an hour or two, but eventually stops. Can anyone recommend a clock service person(s) in the south central Ohio area. (Columbus)...

    Seth Thomas Which Weight is For Time Keeping?

    I recently inherited a clock that matches a clock I found on this site, which someone described as a "Seth Thomas Half Column 1 Day Clock." I love the clock. I also have two questions. 1) The weights were not attached when I got the clock. I'm not sure how to install them because one is larger...
