    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Thank you Steven for the three patent drawings. By mistake I posted the later Horton diagram of 1882 which is not the pendulum I have. Mine has a patent date of Sept. 4, 1877 stamped on the face,. So it is probably the original Jacot design. Jim- for some reason I failed to notice the square...

    Uhralt, I should have the special super glue next week. Will let you know how I do with my experiments. You may know a better way to fix a cracked pane. mb

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Jim. I re-read your response. Did any other clock company use Jacot's pendulum?

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Thanks Jim, Uhralt, Willie, and Steve. My Jacot pendulum has a patent date of 1877. So were they manufactured by / for Welch exclusively? What connection if any was with Jacot, the watchmaker? And who was E. Horton? The clock keeps good time. I have been doing a "push-pull" to adjust the...

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Thanks Dick. I should have been able to deduce the name given the incomplete label and some help from the Savage and Polite website. But you made it easy for me. Thanks again. The name, the title character of the Verdi opera is right in keeping with Mr. Welch's passion for opera...

    Can you ID this Welch clock?

    Hello- Purchased my first E.N. Welch clock in auction. The label on the back is part missing. Have yet to find a copy of Tran du ly's Welch book at a price I can afford. The clock is in good shape and has a Jacot regulator pendulum. Attached are two photos of the clock. Thanks for any...

    Mitsubishi clock need info

    I guess what scares me more than anything is separating the plates and reassembly without having any parts left over. I have a copy stand. I can mount my digital camera on it facing downward at the movement and take a video of the disassembly. Still photos would work also. I like the...

    Mitsubishi clock need info

    Thanks again Tracker. Mitsubishi is a large conglomerate. It would not be surprising to find that Owari was part of their empire. The movement may have been the original in my clock given that there are no additional sets of screw holes inside the clock. From the link you gave me...

    Mitsubishi clock need info

    Hello again. Finally pulled the movement. Interesting stamped logo on the hands side plate. A small horse straddling a ball or globe. See the attached. Nothing else found except some faint scratched in Asian characters, perhaps made by one or more clocksmiths who serviced it. That might...

    Mitsubishi clock need info

    Thank You TracerJack. I’m sure you’re correct on the translation. Seems perfectly logical. Glad to hear it from someone how has a similar example of my clock and to get a sense as to when it was made. Post-war Japanese imports vary in quality, from a country rebuilding after the War when its...

    Mitsubishi clock need info

    Hi. Just purchased a spring driven wooden wall clock with chime. Looks like a copy of a 19th c. American clock. Round face has hinged 8.5 inch bezel glass door and a hinged six-sided rectangular door over the pendulum compartment. Glass on the pendulum door appears old, warped with...
