I'm terribly sorry Kevin W. Dave T. originally said 5.5 lbs too. I typed it wrong.
Jeez I need new glasses.
So I guess I'll go ahead and order the Timesavers p/n 22858

Hello John ... sorry for the delay in responding. I have attached four additional photos of the Gustav Becker "Amerikaner" for your perusal. You tentatively date it from 1910 which is good enough for me. I do have two additional questions, however.
1. What do you think about that...
o.k. Dave T. from the great state of North Carolina tells us that the Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 weight (time only) is 1.75 inch diameter and 6 inches long and weighs in at 6 pounds.
Timesavers shows a "Vienna Weights - Lead Filled" part number 22858 (page 98) with those exact dimensions...
I am hoping that any of you folks that own a Seth Thomas Regulator Number 2 might be able to tell me the weight, diameter and length of the single weight as issued back in the day for this model.
Assuming that I don't have the correct weight in the jumble in my hobby shop (and boy do I have a...
Thank you for educating me on the "P42" meaning. I have included a photo of
the fancy pendulum that came with the clock ... not sure if it's original. I had
never heard about the "Amerikaner" design in GB movements before but your
reply to my question certainly sounds like this is...
This question must have been asked before ... is there a general
rule of thumb about dating the Gustav Becker P42 spring driven
movements? They don't have serial numbers and only show the
GB Anchor "Silesia" imprint on them ... at least those that I have seen.
This leads me to believe the...
Yes ... Tran would be his surname. I've seen others reference specific clock specimens as "Tran #whatever, page so and so" ... I think that is more "correct" than using Du Luy which is his
Any ideas on who A.F. as a French manufacturer might be?
Thank you, I saw that and I understand it to be in the case of more formal usages such
as publication and or copyright type citations. I was asking in the context of an informal
pointer ... like in a verbal conversation or museum specimen I.D.
For example, "Tran #202 page 189". I...
I recently acquired a French Brevete S.G.D.G. boulle type mantel clock.
Time only and porcelain dial with Roman Numerals. Along with some
other numbers and letters stamped on the roulant are A.F.
Does anyone know if that is the makers I.D. and if so, who is it?
My question is about movements in International Time Recording clocks.
I was just looking at an old Forum posting where Harold had been helping a fellow who was asking about a time clock he had found and Harold posted photos of his own time clock, mentioning that it had a Seth Thomas 86...
Someone asked me this question today and quite frankly, I didn't know the answer.
There are regulators and "eclipse" regulators. Everyone seems to have made both ... E.N. Welch, Sessions, Ingraham, New Haven.
What does the term "Eclipse" mean as opposed to just "Regulator"??????
Tran shows Asia's on two pages (227 and 228). It's really difficult to tell
the differences between them. Did you see the fancy movement back plate
from the Zerfing collection? Wow! I checked mine. No such luck. None of
the Asia No. 1's shown by Tran show open escapements as pictured...
