    Ansonia A 21 Movement Marking

    I have a customer who has an Ansonia single rod strike mantle clock movement with a B 21 mark on the back. I have a similar movement with an A 21 mark on the back. Are the movements different or is the A or B marking some sort of manufacturing dating stamp? Thanks David

    LENZKIRCH MODEL 311 QUESTION

    Rathbun bushing use

    I think I found a use for those pesky rathbun bushing we all have taken off movements and stuck in a drawer. I use them for a tiny but useful wall stabilizer on heavy door wall clocks. What do you think?

    Waterbury 32 Calendar Factory mistake?

    I received this Waterbury calendar clock the other day. If you notice the ball and spindle arrangement on the top is different on each side. This top has never been altered, the patina on the wood is the same on each piece which leads me to believe that this happened when the top was...
