    Need dial silvered.

    Not any more...I used to collect S/T Regulators so I knew Martha Smallwood....Leslie in San Diego....Now I almost only collect Chelsea....I have a S/T Lincoln that needs a dial repaint but it has had a repasted paper dial over it....I have never had a Chelsea dial repainted...all have been fine...

    Need dial silvered.

    Bruce, Thanks....I talked to Ben B in October....I can't remember now, but I got the feeling that he was not interested...or that he could do the resilvering and painting but the price would be more than I would want to invest....Or both....I remember that I had to call him...no email....

    Need dial silvered.

    Bruce Linde, Thanks, but I know someone who could resilver. I need someone who could paint the numerals back on the dial. I asked a dial painter some time ago, but the dial was too small for her to take on. I also am fairly sure that the numerals are not engraved.

    Chelsea Ship’s Clock S/N

    You could look for a copy of Chelsea Clock Company ---The First Hundred Years by Andrew Demeter It has a section on serial numbers, shows the last year that run was made and the type of movement it is.

    It is hard to tell from your photo, but what is the size of the dial? Thanks

    Need dial silvered.

    I have a small Chelsea silvered dial with painted numerals, needing help. The chapter ring measures 2 5/8". At some point it was repainted by James West (deceased now.) Evidently the owner prior to me sprayed varnish on the dial and it yellowed. When the previous owner tried cleaning the...

    Clock Clock Parts Wanted

    I am looking for an original painted dial for a Seth Thomas "Lincoln". "Garfield". or "Flora." If none are available I would be interested in a suitable repaint, or repaintable dial. I do not need the wooden surround.

    Post your Seth Thomas clocks here.

    Nice clock. I collected Seth Thomas clocks for a long time and only saw a handful of these Seth Thomas with visible escapements.

    New Haven Adige Shelf Clock

    What a great pendulum bob Chris. At first glance I thought it was a "Welch" but not so.....I had no idea that New Haven made such a fancy pendulum.

    Getting To Know You

    Hello...late to the game but I am "Inbeat" on the board and Jim in real life. I have been a member of the board since 2000, interested in antique clocks sine 1978 and a member of NAWCC since 1981. My uncle was a clock collector and I entered the hobby through him. My initial interest was in...

    Determining age of Seth Thomas Regulator #2

    I think it is a #2...the early #2's did not have a seconds hand...the #1's did.

    Chelsea Clock Question

    I see what you are talking about now...oops.....In looking at three different models of Chelsea clocks that I own with "special hands" and "special dials", they all differ from your earlier Mahogany and Metal and look identical to your second clock. My earliest "special" hands and dial combo is...

    Seth Thomas Regulator #2

    The early S/T #2's did have an unmarked rectangle movement.

    Seth Thomas 30 Day wall clock key size?

    Although I have had numerous Seth Thomas 30 day clocks over my years, I do not own one at this time. My friend does have a Seth Thomas 30 day clock and has a very small key, making it difficult to wind. I recently visited him in Phoenix prior to going home to Portland OR. I would like to send...

    Chelsea Clock Question

    These "special hands", were standard on the "special dials." Note the attached numerals on your dial, instead of the engraved or painted on numerals. I have a few of these in different dial sizes and if you note, my profile picture is an 8 1/2" dial base and ball model.

    Determining age of Seth Thomas Regulator #2

    Because of the unmarked movement and the small logo on the repainted dial, I would think that the beat plate is wrong. Another thing to look for is the pendulum bob. It would be useful to see the back of the bob. Seth Thomas Regulator #2's are old and many for sale have been screwed with...

    Chelsea Zig Zag Clock

    My understanding is the the older model zig zags were cased in phenolic cases while the "current" models (marked U.S. Government) are in the brass cases painted satin black. The serial number as stated dates this clock to 1982....so not a re-cased WWII model. The book "Chelsea Clock Company...
