    Found an old clock

    Upon first seeing the clock, I wondered about the names of the individuals in the four corners. Upper left, I can make out Scott, upper right might be Burns, but it's difficult to tell with the glare. Lower left starts with Ram...? and lower right maybe Ferguson? Perhaps the original poster...

    Ferguson Dial: Decoding the Swiss Style Codes Marked on Reverse

    Is there a transposed number for the 12s, or is this an anomaly from all the other findings? Thanks for all your work pulling this together and sharing it!

    Verge Watch Cocks

    Thanks for sharing the above from the 1950s, as well as your document showing the actual watches, Allan. If you don't want to wait for the mail, the May/June issue is now available to members online. I haven't received my hard copy yet, but did read Mr. Cherico's article over the weekend...

    Win one of 25 Waterbury watches and don't be late for the electric street cars that are coming! Based on the number on the first card (4,962), it appears that the program must have raised some interest - or maybe it was the fear of missing the street car that provided the incentive to enter?;)

    Waltham Vanguard decimal time

    Thank you - my bad. So the question would be whether this watch actually measures 10 "hours" in a 24 "hour" period. Correct?

    Waltham Vanguard decimal time

    If I understand you correctly, you're asking if the watch actually runs 10 "hours" in what we normally measure as a 12 "hour" period. I think we understand the concept of decimal time, but are just asking for confirmation that this watch is measuring as stated above. Correct? It's a really cool...

    Roberts B London doctor or observation pocket watch

    That music-themed balance cock is wonderful, not to mention the wonderful verse on the watch paper. Thanks for sharing! As an aside, the verse on the watch paper might also appear elsewhere, but courtesy of Google Books, I found it in The New England Farmer (page 64) February 1859 issue.

    Very cool, Cort! I wonder if the card is from the New Orleans World Cotton Centennial in 1884. If I recall they had a souvenir booklet from that Fair. Are there any other indicators of where it would have been used?

    Great clocks! Does the tall one have a mirror in the back below the bell? What kind of pendulum? Thanks.

    Maybe a little different viewpoint....Through many years of work, we were always required to log off at the end of the day - a habit I still adhere to. In this case, single sign on would be handy.

    Square Steel Stems

    Not sure what size these are, but since the crown appears to be made separately, could replacement pipes for watch keys be used?

    There are several threads that include Boos clocks here on the message board. If you search those threads, you might be able to find clues as to the movements that were used. From the pictures, your case seems to be in good shape when compared to the amount of rust on the movement. Good...

    How Balance cocks were carved in early verge watches

    Adam, if you are an NAWCC member, there is an informative article on balance cocks in the current (March/April 2021) issue of the Watch & Clock Bulletin. It is to be a 3-part series, and in the current issue the author does speak of the individuals who were involved in the production of a...

    First, congratulations on 50 years!! What a great achievement.:emoji_clap: As for adding a loop, it would also be nice for women who might want to wear the award(s) on a bracelet or neck chain. With today's more casual attire, there's not always a good way to display the pin like there was when...

    Waterbury Star Movement Dismantling

    Like Will, I'm a little confused. Could you post a picture of your clock as it is now? Also, is the piece in post #15 one for which you're unsure of the placement? Thanks!
