    I was hoping that someone may be able to help me identify the maker of this floor standing jeweler's regulator for a customer of mine. She has papers from a repair shop saying it's a Waterbury. However, there are no identifying markings on the clock that I could easily find, and it does not look like any of the jeweler's regulators in Trans Duy Ly's Waterbury book. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    the metal rods that make up the pendulums on waterburys are oval, if that helps... wider left/right

    what a pretty clock. i do not know the manufacturer of the cabinet but as you probably already know it is likely american with a french movement. i was leaning toward a kroeber #25, but after a google, it isnt a match. it appears to be rather original except for the buildup of trim below the door. does the owner posess the original top crest?

    Check out a New Haven Regulator #4. This appears to have a different top and bottom.

    Yes, very like No. 4. Someone may have "shortened" this one a bit, removing the top and the mid-section of the base. The No. 4 was over 10 feet tall.

    Thanks for that info. I will check the rods when I next see the clock. This should help.

    The Original crest is not there. The current owner never had it. What a shame.

    Thanks to everyone for your kind assistance with this one. I think I found it. While checking out some the leads you gave me, I ran into a Welch Walnut Pin Wheel Regulator which is exactly like this one, except that it has the crest which this is missing. I think I found the clock!
