• 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!

This clock was my uncle's for many, many years. It was originally installed in the National Bank of Commerce in Rochester, NY and I'm sure he obtained it directly from them as he also lived in Rochester.


It is an International Time Recording model 2-12 SECY, wood frame, Jan 18 1924, serial 265010. The glass front panel lifts up on a hinge at the top. I've found no other ones like it in any searches on the internet, so I'm posting this for posterity and maybe a question below.


The original clockwork was removed long ago, so this is a "working" clock and not a collection piece. The reason I post this is that the replacement works have failed (slight buzzing, no movement) and I am trying to find an easy and direct replacement. I can claim no particular expertise in electric clock movements, and this one has no numbers or markings on the back other than:


MODEL
FOR A.C. USE ONLY
105-125 VOLTS.60 CY. 2.5 WATTS
PAT'D USA 2437201
OTHER PATS. PENDING


It seems to be a Lanshire E845a movement from what I can search out on various sites, but I'm not 100% certain - there appear to be many Lanshire movements that are close in description. It has a threaded shaft that holds the works onto the face. Does anyone know of a suitable replacement that is a bit more modern that would fit the hands without modification?

My 1921 Job cost recorder. It has hung on my wall for years and I run occasionally. Well I decided to clean it up and may have kids clock in and out on it as they do their chores. WE will see how long this last. Anyhow, the middle cover is missing, and after seeing this post several have this very model. Can anyone give me the dimensions on the sheet metal for this middle cover? I have a very good connection with a sheet metal shop, and I can have it made very easily.

Thanks so much
Dan

Well, this thing is a beast. I am somewhat familiar with the company but know nothing about this clock. I can see a movement but won’t be home for a while. It barely fit in the truck with a car seat in. There appears to never have been a bottom device since the inlay has design. Anyone have much info on a ITR like this?

Thanks

Well, I finally got this red beast home. It must weight 60lbs or more. It’s 44 inches long and I gave her a little lacquer thinner to see what is underneath. It turned dayglo pink at first. Then I finally made it to some me wood. It’s going to be a lot of work but I think it will turn out after a lot of work!

Here’s the movement. I guess with out a serial number (not movement stamped number) there is not a reliable way to date?

Hello RLL, I did post some additional information about these program clocks in another post. If you click on my name and select "Find all posts by John Lippold" you will see the other post. If you down load the photos I posted, and enlarge them, I think you will be able to read more details about these clocks.
The clock in the photos is in my collection (S/N 282562). It is a little older than your clock (late 1924) but very similar. It also runs perfectly and rings a buzzer at various times as programmed... I hope this is helpful... John


hi new here, recently bought this IBM time clock or wheel clock . it has no no tag or serial number i can find. would like to know as much as i can . believe i just need a pendulum and a battery and it should work. the case is 65"x20"x8" was told it is capable running of 24 slaves. 12" face theres a small plate on the bottom that says model 2040. i couldnt make that number match anything. from the tip of the part the pendulum attaches to , to the top of the scale at the bottom is 39.5" how do i know how long of a pendulum i need? thanks for any and all info...

I know this is a very old thread but it seems like the most likely place to find an answer. I am restoring an International Time recording Company model 8100 job cost recorder just like the one posted on page 1. One issue I'm having with it is that it's been gaining 1 minute per day of operation and It's missing the rod that goes from the bottom of the clock to the top of the time stamp. I'm wondering if the missing rod provides enough needed drag on the clock works to make it keep the correct time.

I can make the rod myself but was wondering if there was a photo of an original available to work from. The connector at the bottom of the clock sits about an inch further back in the case than the connector at the top of the time stamp unit. None of the photos I've been able to locate show enough detail of this rod.

Thank you very much! I was guessing they might have used balled ends to help with the offset, but wasn't positive. Seeing this answers a whole lot of questions! If you don't mind, what is the distance from the pin on one end to the pin on the other end on yours?

Hi, my name is Markus and I live near Vienna in Austria. For many years I own this time recorder from ny grandfather. I restored it during the nineties. The parts missing were the drive rod (I reconstructed it with some wire and RC-car parts) and the plate around the lever. Since then it runs daily. Is there someone who can tell me what specific model it is and in what year it was produced? The serial number is 20099. Thanks a lot. Greetings Markus

Nice clock Marcus and cool history. I too just stumbled across this thread. I am hoping someone can help me find where my clock was originally used.
