    New York New York Self Winding Clock

    Just purchased this a couple of weeks ago and finally got it up on the wall. I believe it's a #16 but I've seen some sites say a #9. It has a rotary movement but only 2 sets of coils not the usual 3 sets. Wood is blk walnut came out really nice after all the dirt and dust was removed. On the...

    Atmos Question

    I also thought I may be a dirty mainspring. But before taking things apart I thought I would check everything one more time. Last night I brought the clock back down to my bench and removed the case and bellows again. I check the bellows movement from chilled to room temp, it moves 10 to 12 mm...

If I reach in and manually wind the mainspring with my finger the clock will run again. It runs and keeps accurate time. But in a couple of...

    Help With Tavern Clock ID

    Thanks for all the info. Yes it's a pretty plain looking clock. It looks like it may be made of pine there are several knots in the wood. It has retaining power but doesn't have a spring . It has a set of pins on the gear which engage to retain power when winding I think. Should have taken a...

    Seth Thomas #17

    Thanks for all the help. Yes I meant to say escapewheel not verge. I thought it looked like some sort of electrical contact too. The movement is hanging on the wall and running. Not sure if it is keeping time as the dial is not attached. It doesn't look like it is hurting anything so i'll...

    Seth Thomas #17

    I just purchased a ST#17 and when I removed the movement to clean and oil it I found this. It's a lever or arm clamped on the verge shaft. It sticks up about an inch, but doesn't do anything, except rotate with the verge. Anybody have any idea of what it's purpose is. Doesn't look original...
