    No Electricity and 1 Clock

    My Pequegnat Moncton 15 day time only. Keeps pretty good time for a spring-driven clock.

    Vote on next clock

    I'd get the 8-day ST and the style is nice. Some like winding a clock every day but I prefer once a week.

    Question about New Haven movement

    A spring-driven New Haven movement, dial, hands, etc. in a one-of hall clock case is a little odd but since I have time on my hands I decided to service the movement and refresh the case with a thorough cleaning, a top coat of Poly-Wipe, and polish the brass. I even kept the fake (empty cans)...

    New Haven Anglo American

    Intriguing clock case design. I have a similar movement in a tall case clock. they are called square aperture movements and Anglo American as you said.

    I have a similar movement in a hall clock. On mine, the strike fan occupies the inner pivot hole and it is for a 27-inch pendulum.

    Question about New Haven movement

    I removed the raised platform and could not see any evidence of a seat board ever being in this case. I think this is a one-of and not a New Haven factory clock. 72bpm, does that sound right? Ron

    Question about New Haven movement

    Yes, a seat board makes sense. There is a raised wood platform to accommodate the spring-driven movement. There are 4 screws holding the platform in place. In the next day or so, I will take that out to see if the clock once had a seat board. I only paid $75 for this clock, so, not a great loss...

    Question about New Haven movement

    I might be answering my own question but was there a weight-driven version of this particular movement? I found this in a hall clock. Evidently, someone replaced the movement with a spring-driven one as the chain and weights are still in it to simulate a weight-driven one. The ladder chains are...

    Can anyone identify the model of this Ansonia?

    Some would simply have tossed it out. What a nice restore. Ron

    I notice there are only 2 hall clocks in this thread and both are the Vancouver. Can we see more? Ron

    The Future of Clock Collecting

    I enjoy working on clocks, I continue to collect them and I am not particularly worried about what will happen to them when I am gone. Life is too short Ron

    It has those trim pieces on the end. Did any version of the Swan have them?

    Thanks, Don. The carving does look strange. I wish I knew. Not my clock but I have passed the information on to the owner. Wish I had a copy of the "Pequegnat Story". Hard to find.
