    Recently got a tall case GF clock made by George deFore in Fish Creek, Wisconsin. Seems he specialized in authentic hand made recreations of early American time pieces. I can't seem to find anything else about him. Wonder if anyone here has heard of him. Thanks.

    English Small World Rhythm

    Anyone familiar with these quartz clocks that have a music box disc that plays on the hour?

    How do you adjust the beat on a Lauffer W6 movement?

    Recently acquired a lovely Lauffer mantel clock--the art deco style with a green dial and green front inserts. The beat is a bit off and I'm just not sure how to adjust it. Any help is appreciated.

    Please help to identify this English clock

    Just got this one and need help in identifying. On the dial is written Regent St. , London. Unfortunately the makers name is not visible.
