This is an example of a J C Brown Sharp Gothic with all J C Brown marks, on the dial, movement and backboard label.
This clock, obviously, has not run for many years. Notice the wood bracket that had been repaired decades ago with twine which has now disintegrated. The movement was "hanging by...
Attended an estate sale this morning which had over 20 clocks of various types - wall, mantel and 400day. Everything was overpriced, most everything had broken cases and non-original movements and still priced $350 - $500.
A filthy 1950s kundo 400 day was priced at $135. Right next to it was...
I had not noticed the STAR until Dan mentioned it. Why is this board getting more like a social networking site? We already socialize here in what I think is in a professional manner. There should not be a STAR to click on to get points for reputation and a place to evaluate that...
"For Your Enjoyment" Here is a high resolution copy of the "Calendar Watch" featured on the 2013 NAWCC Museum Timepiece Collection Calendar.
Each "slice of the pie" is a portion of the watch featured for that month.
Dan has done a great job producing this calendar and it has been an honor...

Cleared out temp files and cookies.
This is our 2 year old dog Gracie.
She loves to fetch the newspaper and she lets us know when the mailtruck has arrived so she can help bring in the mail. She enjoys laying on the floor next to me when I'm in the "clock room". I'm sure she can hear the ticking a lot better than I can.
This Vincenti & Cie (Roux) french mantel clock (1855-1870) has a figure and two portraits.
This is during Napoleon III 's reign 1852 - 1870.
Is it know whom this figure and portraits represent?
I think he may be an artist. Is that a painters pallet at the top of the clock below the portrait...
This is my un-restored Georg Wurthner Moon Phase clock.
I know there are already a few references to this clock on the Message Board but I wanted to add my close-up photos for those that may appreciate them for research.

This clock, made by the Union Manufacturing Company (1840s), was given to me by my brother. It was our Great Grandfather’s clock and most likely the first clock they purchased after settling in a small farming community in Maine in the 1830s.
This clock was in the attic for at least 90 years...
I am having trouble logging in at the Main page. When I go to the Message Board it did not recognize my stored name and password. I was able to log in at the M.B. after typing my name and password.
FYI.......At the top of the Main Page this info shows up when first going to the NAWCC site...
My new clock acquisition is a Seth Thomas FASHION CLOCK No. 7, G J Pettigrew Clock Company.
It has the flat top behind the arch, the knob on the inner door is close to the edge which requires the main door to have a recessed area to accomodate it. The time movement has an outside fly, the...
I am researching Seth Thomas OG Top clocks.
The clock shown below is one I own that may have originally had an OG Top.
Please post any clocks you have that match this case or is similar to the description that follows. Please include measurements, type movement and label information and any...
Testing four methods to paste text into edit window.
1. "Paste as plain text" button
2. "Paste from Word" button
3. "Control - V"
4. "Right Click", "Paste"
The results indicate that "Right Click", "Paste" was the only method that carried over most of the text attributes from the...
This Roulant timepiece has a stamped five point star with no name.
There are many references to 5 point stars on the message board but I have not been able to locate information specific to the star being used with no name.
I would be interested in any information on who made this movement...
I purchased this Waverly ELECTRO-CLOCK at an Esate Sale this weekend. When I saw it I knew immediately that I had to have it. The case is really beautiful and the silvered dial is in excellent shap. The glass needs to be cleaned inside.
I'm going to remove the cord for safety reasons. I do not...
