I have always desired a Seth Thomas Adamantine for my collection and my birthday was a good excuse to acquire one. I really loved the Larkin 35's design and of corse Ebay was accommodating. However as we know, years of temperature shifts as well as environmental impurities and time will cause the celluloid covering to out gas and create a milky or dusty grey appearance to the surface. The clock I found had minimal to no collateral damage you know Dings deep scratches etc and I was not concern with the condition of the 89C movement because I would completely overhaul it. So here are photos of the larkin No.35's progression. The first few photos show the condition of the celluloid surface.
