    Haller Quartz "400 day" desk clock

    Thanks to both of you for your answers. Since nothing happens with the suggestions made, I think this clock needs a priest to give it the last rites. Not a bad looking clock and too bad it has but one life 😞 Al Stevenson

    American American Clock Co wiring diagram

    I have in for repair an American Clock Co. wall clock with the "stick" movement (B3740) that has had some amateur "repairs" to all the wiring. I have looked at Goodrich's The Modern Clock section on this clock but there are no in-depth wiring diagrams for the coils. I've attached 3 pics of...

    A few questions about clock makers.

    I'm trying to find some information for a fellow NAWCC member about a banjo type clock with a name of Robert Foster on the dial. There is a person by that name listed as a clock or watch maker in the UK, but I suspect that this clock is American made, and may be a one-of-a-kind custom made case...

    Ansonia "LENSET" electric clock.

    Don. I think I've seen one other similar to this one on ebay a year or so back. Wonder if someone wasn't playing on Ansonia's name after they quit making clocks. Al

    Need Ansonia going train parts.

    For whatever reason, my attempts at uploading a couple of pics just freezes my computer. Anyway, the present minute shaft length is 2 5/8" from top of back plate to tip of minute square. From top of front plate to tip of minute square is 1 1/8". Maybe this will help you some. Thanks for...

    Ansonia "LENSET" electric clock.

    I'm sure someone in here has seen one of the Ansonia "Lenset" electric clocks, altho they seem to be scarce. The movement of the one I have is mounted into a green marble case, sitting on a rectangular marble base. The movement has a capsule motor with no markings anywhere, and the only...

    Need Ansonia going train parts.

    I have an early Ansonia mantle movement that needs a longer minute shaft and going train to match. The movement is of the pre-1881 style with squared-off corners (not the arch-plate design). The minute shaft needed should be about 3 1/2" long from the top of the back plate to the end of the...

    Question about Schatz 'ELEXACTA' swing clock
