Dolf, welcome to the NAWCC Message Board! Thanks for posting the photos of your Grivolas clock. As a matter of interest, I have been following your clock on the internet for almost seven years as it has been sold from one owner to another. Congratulations on acquiring it, as there are some unusual features that I will cover in this discussion.Hello here some pics of my Grivolas Clock
Kurt, good info regarding the serial numbering. Note that in my post above I explained the complete serial number in detail. The last single digit number is a batch number based on the fact that Grivolas made his plates nine at a time and numbered them "0" through "8". Here is the full explanation for one that had the number "7" as the final number:Very, very nice! From the serial number on the back, it is a Model A (there were A, B, and C models representing different designs over the years). The "10" indicates it was built in 1910 and was the 2323rd clock built starting from the 1906 timeframe. From what I've read, the last digit's purpose is unknown.
Your clock appears quite similar to No. 335 as shown in the 1910 catalog. Your pendulum has matching scroll work but that isn't shown specifically in the catalog.
Hope this helps.* The "7" is a batch number related to the fact that Grivolas made sets of nine plates simultaneously, with each plate in the batch stamped sequentially "0, 1, 2, 3, through 8". This has been statistically and factually documented. With regard to the batch series for this clock, the serial number of the first clock in this batch was B.12-3696-0, the last was B.12-3704-8. The next batch repeated the series.
Omodox, bem-vindo ao MB de NAWCC, e muito obrigado por postar as fotos do seu relógio Claude Grivolas!! You have a very nice example of model No. 335 as seen in the 1910 Claude Grivolas 400-Day Clock Catalog. It appears that the original bronzed finish has been mostly polished away but there is still some color there. Actually this model was made with several variations of color for both the case and for the trim.Friends, how are you? I would like to know more about my watch. 400 day pendulum utilia Claude Grivolas
