Thought this might be useful for future collectors. This threads purpose is to collect hands, pendulums, keys, weights, numerals, etc for: 1- Help identify clocks based on manufactures exclusive design for these items. 2- An archival purpose, such as defining this hand as a manufacturers special. 3- To help others to find missing parts that may not be of the common assortment. If a clock you have has an unusual, maker’s exclusive, or rare accessory, please feel free to post. Make sure to include information on the item. Thanks

I have collected a few examples. These are my own pictures and I give permission to repost but I ask that you’ll inform that it came from this thread (if public). Feel free to post duplicate of my items. The more examples the better.

Hope this proves to be useful for others!

There are the older and new style of these Hermle keys because the older ones usually allowed them to be clipped in a clip near the bottom of the case or the back door.

Here are some more beautiful manufacturers exclusive accessories!

Two Mauthe styles!
South American or Chrome style hands:
91439435-C2A9-409B-865C-1558573A77BC.jpeg
These hands are steel, I believe and are used exclusively on their Southern American style clocks. These don’t come around often. The hands are also pictured and they used them on virtually all chiming wall clock models or (maybe - don’t quote me on that one) even all Mauthe clocks. You can tell the difference by its knurled “crown” on the arbor part.
Mauthe French style:
B86A83A8-DF96-4B1E-B70F-2EA356967005.jpeg
These hands are special because they are unique (and pretty). They are used on their French market wall clocks. These clocks are up to “French needs” (my theory that French wall clocks must need the following: A key holder, a chime clamp, a chime string, polygon shapes, and of course, box case with ornate ornaments).
Seth Thomas lobby clock hands:
DEE25617-5CF6-43A1-B05B-8661D01C015E.jpeg
These hands are huge (minute hand close to 6”) and distinctive. They used this style of hand on 30 day duel mainspring time only clocks (industrial style) and distinguishable from their Ansonia competitor 30 day clocks. These hands are “moon” style along with a “moon” (if that’s what their called) style second hand.
Waterbury Augusta:
3FBA23E4-3344-4788-A254-9E6699217954.jpeg
These hands were used in their “Ladder chain” series “Augusta”. They did not use these for its brothers and sister ladder chain clocks such as the “Study” series or the “Atlanta”. I think they were even used in some spring driven wall regulators (not sure if correct).
Herschede chime mantle clocks:
040C7447-10FF-4854-B0CF-185B3915FC26.jpeg
Their famous “round winged” hands. You see a side by side comparison of the M.20 and the M.10 keys (do know they are different regarding sizes).
Ansonia open escapement clocks:
C50E3FBC-B72D-4567-91E6-612C4AB1F752.jpeg
This is not exactly defining hands but one of a few hands Ansonia used on their Open Escapement clocks. They’d used two trident styles. One like this where the pointy things point inward and another style where they point outward. They also used a thin and slim type hand. Sure there’s more but this is one.
