    I recently completed the monumental task o/f restoring the Westminster 3 plate new haven movement.
    can anyone tell what years they were made?
    The feller that owns it would like to know

    Well, Tran's New Haven Book only shows these clocks from a 1929 catalog. I think the patents on the movements go up to about 1926, if I remember right. What is stamped on yours?

    Harold, no serial numbers and not even a logo are stamped into the plates. It has the style and looks of the 1920,s

    This one looks like the Harkness, 21" long, 10" high, silvered dial, raised numerals. The angle of your picture does not show the case properly, but, frankly, Tran's catalogue picture is not of the best for comparison.

    Steven the Model is "REVERIE" It is 18 inch x 8 1/4.

    Its back together and running fine but the hour strike has developed an issue and I will pull it back out to see why the hammers sometimes hang up and don't drop until you move the clock.. Something I overlooked I guess.

    thanks for the info
