• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

    What is this weight for on ST 3 5/8?

    On a Seth Thomas marked "3 5/8" 8 day time and strike movement from an Adamantine mantle clock, 1897 date on case. There is a weighted device with a pin on one end. The weight is attatched to the back plate. It is mounted near the center of the movement between the plates. I can't figure out...

    Ever hear of Veracolate brand clock?

    While visiting Spring Mill Park in Mitchell, IN, I noticed they had a few old clocks in the restored buildings in the village. One looks like an American parlour clock from the late 1800s era. It has "Veracolate" on the dial. The only thing I can find on that name doing a websearch is for a...

    Early Atmos serial numbers?

    Was it normal for the early Atmos clocks to not have a matching case and movement serial numbers? I just saw one that has 4 digit serial numbers that are close, but not matching. Number on top was 96xx, movement was 95xx. Can you give an approximate year this was made? Has there ever been...

    Age of swinger clocks?

    I admit to knowing nothing about the Junghans. Ansonia, and other swinger clocks. Yesterday I was looking through a 1975 furniture catalog that had a few NEW clocks listed. One was a statue swinger clock that is similar to the ones made by Junghans, to my eye anyway. It had an 8 day...

    NAWCC Happenings email question

    I just got the email for NAWCC Happenings. I wonder why the letter "A" is repeated so many times on the message, if it is a computer command that is not working right for me? I will copy the letter as I see it (hope it shows up here the same way): "Â " It is at the end of nearly every...

    Crane replica?

    Has anyone ever made a replica of a Crane torsion clock? I was always fascinated by Crane clocks, but there are too few of them to go around. Andy

    I have wondered if anyone here has ever made a custom case, or torsion clock with an unusual feature? In Chapter 168's "Torsion Times" newsletter, there are a number of unusual clocks pictured from time to time, I just wonder what else has been done? One was a weight driven domed clock...

    Battery rewind torsion clocks.

    Age of Junghans wall clock

    This Junghans has what looks like "A11" on the back of the movement. Is this a model number or a date code? Is there a way to tell when it was made? I'm not sure of the letter "A" since it isn't stamped very well. Andy...

    Newest Haller model

    This is the newest style of Haller 200 day torsion clock. It has the "Loricron" brand name on the dial. I think this came out in 1992 and as far as I know, is still being made. The backplate and pendulum are not in the Horolovar guide. Andy :cool...

    What do you call this?

    Saw this newer clock on ebay, and I wondered what you call this type of movement? It was probably made in the 1970s or 1980s by W&A Schmid-Schlenker. Andy

    Atmos regulating compared to anniversary clocks

    When you regulate the time on regular anniversary clocks, you move the pendulum weight farther in or out. Since the Atmos pendulum is not adjusted this way, what do you change when you regulate it? Do you change the length of the suspension spring? Has there ever been another torsion clock...

    Search options

    For the new message board, I wonder if there is a way you could set it when searching, to look for "most recent messages first" and "oldest messages first", possibly other ways of searching too. Sometimes when I try to find a recent message, it will show some from 2002, some 2005, some recent...

    Waterbury battery oil bottle

    I guess you have seen the little "battery oil" bottles, usually with "Thomas A Edison" on them. I found one that has "Waterbury" written on it. It is exactly the same shape as the common Edison ones you see. Was this for a battery powered Waterbury clock, or did they make other products in...
