• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Looking at this clock online but not sure who it is made by. It is at an online auction site so no other pictures really, just trying to get some information on it before bidding on it. Tried to get any identifying marks I could out of the pictures but can't see any.

The dial carries the logo of Seikosha, a Japanese company. We often see the Ingraham-style pendulum on oriental clocks. A look at the movement would confirm that the clock is by Seikosha, though at the moment I see no reason to doubt it.

Thanks. Will probably pass on this one. Already have a bunch of them made in Korea etc. would rather spend the money on ones that someday could carry more value to them.

I have 2 Seikoshas in my collection of wall pendulum clocks. I believe Seikosha is Japanese, not Korean. They both keep good time and actually survived a rough household move a few years back. They certainly are inexpensive to pick-up, and would make a good present for someone that would enjoy a mechanical movement clock, but is not a collector. I'm not certain but seem to recall, Seikosha was the forerunner for what is now Seiko.
