    Welch Spring & Co Help

    Good point. I measured the outside of the edge to edge of the dial. I will measure the chapter ring when I get home. One thing I forgot ask is what is the advantage of the upside down movement?

    Welch Spring & Co Help

    I believe that I have a Welch Spring & Co 30 day regulator #2 in very bad shape. I first though it was a Atkins 30 day extra but not so. The problem that I have is that the dial is almost 20" in diameter. All the descriptions I have seen are 18"dials. Did Welch offer this in a 20" dial? The...

    True confessions: How I got fleeced

    I am not the expert as most of the people on this forum. My experiences are from the school of hard knocks. Purchasing on ebay and most of the on line auctions is strictly buyer beware.

    Dating Chauncey Boardman

    Thanks for the information. Based on the patent application I can only assume that Boardman used labels that he previously printed. I would do the same. I will look closer at the label to see a printers mark is evident. Thanks again

    I picked up a French Mantle clock yesterday and the works are stamped JBD as well as the bezel. I know very little about American clocks and nothing about French clocks. It does have a brocot escapement. How can I verify the maker and age. I know you are going to want pictures and I will try and...

    Metal Seth Thomas

    Purchased this clock over the weekend. I was hoping someone could tell me the appx date of manufacturer. Does the dial appear correct? Did this model come with a lyre type movement? Would the back panel be made of wood? A model name would be good. Pictures are included. Thanks in advance. Randy
