    Help Identifying Regulator(is it a Biedermeier?) Clock Date and Manufacturer?

    The glass is not wavy....i also thought the name Sainz was odd, it is a Spanish name. Because of the use of this name, I was wondering if this was a reproduction. The wood is old. I have no idea if the face has been repainted. If the clock was restored, it was done with perfection, except...

    Help Identifying Regulator(is it a Biedermeier?) Clock Date and Manufacturer?

    Hi, I'm trying to help give a friend more information on his inherited clock. It looks amazing, but there are no markings and everything looks oddly new except for the back wood panel is obviously 100+ old, flathead screws and pins everywhere. The pendulum rod is metal, is this Invar? The...

    Jewelers Clock Help

    A local clock friend found this clock in his book. It is made by New Haven, 1895 model 'The New York'. Next, can anyone help me with a technique to straighten or flatten and maybe take some of the bends or folds out of the brass decorative piece on the pendulum rod? It should be perfectly...

    yes, removing the screw, it fits perfectly in the bigger hole. Everything you said about the pin makes sense so I will give it a try. Thanks for all of your help!

    Jewelers Clock Help

    Hi Bruce, I can see what you are saying about the pendulum from your pictures, when i look closer i can see it resembles some Gilbert pendulums more, not saying it is one. Could you help me figure out how to replicate a pin for the pendulum? The pin on this is missing.

    Jewelers Clock Help

    Thank you for the information. One more question I have is on the pendulum hanger, there are two holes, one bigger one on the bottom and one smaller one on top. The bottom one uses a screw to attach the pendulum to the hanger, but I am not sure what to put in the smaller hole, as it is not...

    hi Bruce, thanks for your quick response, the pendulum looks to me to be very similar to Waterbury clocks I've seen. But I'm guessing same pendulums were used on many different clocks? Does the pendulum help determine the age the clock or anything else to help determine the age? thankyou

    Can Anyone Interpret this Signature/Clockmaker?

    When researching we found this cabinet style might be early 1800's, but we also found 3 other signs hinting earlier: 1. found an article "How to Date Your Grandfather Clock" . Concerning pendulums it says "From 1740 to 1800 the wire rod stayed, but the bob became flattened into a saucer shape...

    Can Anyone Interpret this Signature/Clockmaker?

    I believe this to be a Scottish Drumhead clock from 1785. Even after seeing the initials or signature, I can't figure out what it says. I edited a picture to show more detail of the letters. Any guesses to the letters or name or clockmaker? thankyou

    Clockmakers A&E or L Adams Late 1700's to early 1800's?

    hi, I'll post the clock pic, but what it looks like now may not be exactly what it looked like in 1815. I know (according to engravings on the same gear) that Hiram Chase Altered the clock in 1868, but not sure what he altered. you can't tell from the pics, but it is 5' tall. The engravings...

    Clockmakers A&E or L Adams Late 1700's to early 1800's?

    I have an old 5' tall wall regulator possibly made around 1815 with the initials A&E and also L Adams engraved in a gear. I know this clock lived in Belfast Maine from at least 1837 to 1947. It also has many other names engraved on the same gear that we have already found information on - T...

    Manufacturer of this Regulator?

    Found another service date of 1837 with a name, looks like PeteTyler. Here is another picture, to help, but I'm guessing this is American? Probably put together by someone with skills, but maybe not a documented manufacturer? Ideas? Does the lead weight with the gear look like any other...

    Manufacturer of this Regulator?

    Looking closer at the movement, there are half a dozen dates and names written on the hour wheel which I presume are service dates. Trying to decipher the dates and so far have seen dates from which I think are as far back as 1850's and difficult to read but possibly 1830's and 1840's.

    Manufacturer of this Regulator?

    Hi, I do own the clock, sorry for any confusion, I just had not gotten my hands on it yet. But now, here it is. It kind of looks homemade to me? There are a lot of holes in the plates that don't have a purpose. Any other ideas to origin of the movement?

    Manufacturer of this Regulator?

    Without looking at the movement, can anyone tell me the manufacturer/history/type of this clock? It looks like it has a single weight behind the pendulum, similar to Howard? I'm a little confused as to the location of the winding arbor, and how the movement would actually look. thankyou

    Tiffany Clock? The Manufacturer?

    thanks Brian for pointing out the brocot spring fact. My son(14) and I have been collecting and learning about clocks just for a few years and we are constantly learning. Here is a better picture of the click spring adjustment.
