    I bought this clock for 49 dollars. It needs new glass, new cap nut for the hands, and I had to buy a winding key. I have no idea what brand clock it is, but I know that it was made in New Haven Conn. The pendulum and escapement are having problems they stop after ticking for a few minutes. I was not sure if this the correct place to post. The chime is a cathedral gong but past that I don't know anything else.

    Welcome to the message board. Nice little clock, I think the answers to your questions are in the label itself. It looks like it is the "Aurine" model made by the New Haven Clock Company. It would be worthwhile for you to have it cleaned and serviced, it looks in decent shape. Here is another thread that speaks to the Aurine model, Steven dates it to around 1917.

    New Haven Clock - Does it have a name?

    I was wondering if Aurine meant the style or something else. I thought it looked in good shape one of the reasons I bought it, but I'm a novice so I wasn't sure.

    Your clock maybe just needs to be put in beat (if it is off-level, the clock will stop running pretty fast). This might not be the problem, but if it is, it's a relatively easy one to correct. I remember there being a Beat Setting forum post somewhere, so if you search those terms up you'll be able to see how to set your clock in beat.

    Thank you both for the responses I got my clock working for about an hour and half so I think it is a level problem.

    Level and off beat, two different things. Search beat setting, its a good read.

    I had a bid on a clock very similar to this last time I went to the auctions. Was gutted when the price went over the cash i had in my pocket
