• 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!

as to the photos, if you try to make a deletion, they always wind up at the bottom of your thread anyway with no way to take them off. so....as a note to self, I guess its probably a good idea not to accidentally mix in those "family" boudoir pics.....

I have an active (sort of inactive at the moment) thread here of the restoration of my jewelers regulator, so I guess I will just "repasta" the link here.

My best Craigs find to date: New Haven jeweler's Regulator

I do think this is a good idea for a thread though.....

Your cats must be more lazy than ours. (how is that possible?) We have one cat that has a 6'8" vertical leap done from a standing position, no run up needed. Of course she has to talk about it before she does it. She will look, talk, look some more, walk around to the other side, talk some more, then jump and land on top of the 2" thick door. Why? Because she can I guess.

But, nice clock, thanks for adding it, and seasons greetings to the cats from our cats!

They both know they are not allowed in that room, so they usually honor it. The youngest can scale a door frame clear to the top, to my chagrin!

Here's a Waterbury 46(?) that we had for several years, along with a postcard with a similar regulator in a jewelry store. And the Ansonia 17 that balanced the wall.

when i think of jewelers regulators the first things i think of are porcelain dial, sweep second hand, and (more typically) a 13lb ginormous brass pendulum.

Steve Murphy posted his waltham, above... but in another thread andy dervin just clarified while waltham made a medium-sized movement with sweep second hand, it was typically in 40" or so cases... and that they did not make a seconds beating movement with a sweep second hand.

i love jewelers regulators and was starting to google to research more about history, desirability (apparently waltham didn't think there was a demand for sweep second hands), etc.

so: what defines a jewelers regulator? is a sweep second hand a definer? would it be more accurate to call steve's a precision regulator than a jewelers regulator?

here are mine:

- waterbury no. 8 w/ deadbeat movement
- french pinwheel in somewhat unique case with beveled and cut glass in door
- gilbert #20 movement, newer/custom case, dial and pendulum
- french pinwheel in ridiculously heavy case (with a brass plaque that says "johnson pneumatic tower clock, erected by johnson heat regulating co., st. louis')
- older pinwheel, no case, made up pendulum, pewter hands (liked the look)

There is one for sale or will be locally. I have seen at auctions most dont seem to sell high. I sure would love one. I lost out on one last summer. I sure like all the ones i have seen in this thread.
