• 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!

Need help identifying the maker of this small mantle clock movement - possibly French?

Hello, recently aquired a tambour clock with this movement. Seller said it was a Seth Thomas which seems to be the go to for sellers that have no idea what they are selling :D. I have looked over the movement and it is not a Seth Thomas but I can’t figure out who made it. Both the plates do not have any markings on them whatsoever, neither does the dial, case, or mounting brackets. Any help identifying the maker of this would be greatly appreciated.

thanks friends!

I believe it is New Haven. For comparison, below is a picture of one I have in a Tuxford wood Crystal Regulator.

And another from Tran:

Checking the movement in my Tuxford, I see that the strike fan is the same as shown in Gage's movement.

A look at the case might serve to confirm or refute.

I didn’t realize the New Haven and Ansonia looked so similar.

I agree now, the subject clock is NewHaven.

I just oiled the movement and polished the case. Clock cleaned up nice, so far it is keeping good time. Might give this one to a friend as a gift.:D

My last question is if this is a New Haven clock, what is the model of it called? As my clock does not have any paperwork or labels on the inside.

thanks again,

Gage
