  8. I'll add a photo of assorted Seth Thomas shelf clocks to the posting.

    Most of this group are City/College Series.
    Not necessarily any rare ones, I just like the quality and diversity of the city series clocks.

    Very nice selection Clock Jim.
    I have a "love/hate" relationship with City Clocks as well as double dials....I love them..get a bunch of them...and then fall out of love and don't keep them...but the infatuation resurfaces after they are gone...Luckily this does not carry over in my personal relationships since I have been married for 35 years.

    Here is my rare (not yet restored) Seth Thomas, 8 Day Plymouth Hollow column ogee.

    The clock has a lyre movement, original (touched-up) dial (which I plan to restore better).

    Label is an overpasted label that reads: Made and Sold by Seth Thomas, and James Brice, Cincinatti Ohio.

    Resurrecting a thread here....Back from the Del Mar Regional where the Show, in spite of being well run from a management standpoint was in fact miserable from a selling or buying standpoint.
    I did snag on to another Seth Thomas clock early though. Walnut Regulator #9 with nickel damascened bob and nickel weight and trim. The clock is already on the wall here at home.

    Interesting thread that I had not seen before. Guess I'll add a modest sample to it. This is a Seth Thomas Parlor Clock from ca. 1863. It has an 8-day lyre-shaped movement. I have not seen manyexamples of this nice little clock. I often wonder if it an "ancestor" of the St. Louis in the city series. Some similarities.

    I'll add a couple of others. One is the Cordova in the city series, a nice model that I really enjoy. The second is the Banjo No. 7 (time only this one), with Jefferson and Monticello, who are often misidentified as Washington and Mt. Vernon. I don't think banjos were the best that ST produced, but I kinda like this one (until the right price comes along!).

    The number 9 is a good'un, all right. Wish I'd seen it first!

    And a fairly common 30-hour weight column clock, with nice original tablet, good case and columns. I don't know what happened with the dial - the minutes marks are missing. Plymouth movement and label (remnant).

    The first time I hung this one, I used a molly and it took out part of the wallboard....I caught it in time and luckily, one of my sons was nearby and helped me get it down.....I then used a stud...

    Inbeat..they both are great clocks and work well.The Wardroom runs about 52 hours and the Joker 40+ hours..........I have heard a lot of ships clocks strike but this Wardroom has a very soft and mellow sound. Bob Reichel worked on it and it runs flawlessly..

    This is a seldom-seen Seth #32 Regulator in old oak with its original finish, dial, nickel accessories, etc. The lettering on the glass is also old.

    Bob,

    Can you tell me what movement is in your no. 32 case and also how the dial is attached? I have a similar case made by S. Thomas for the American Watchman's Time Detector Co., which I have been trying to restore to some semblance of originality. Thanks.

    While I am not looking directly at the clock of Bob's, I would have to say it is a Seth #62 movement with a 30 tooth escape wheel...like the one in some Seth #17's....(The Seth #3 has the same movement with a 36 tooth escape wheel)....the dial is mounted on a dial board....with nickel surround.....Bob can confirm if I am correct....

    The movement is indeed the #62, beating seconds. The dial is soldered to the bezel and is attached to the movement via 4 long screw pins inserted thru the studs at the back of the dial which fit into holes in the movement plate.

    Let me know if I can be of additional help.

    BOB,

    So the dial feet are riveted to the dial plate and then inserted into the front plate of the movement, where they are held by the long screws instead of pins. Is that correct?

    Are the dial feet long to reach the movement, or is the movement mounted towards the front of the case on a deep bracket?

    Jeremy:

    Yes, that's correct. See the picture of the "pin" I'm talking about. it's 1.75" long. Seth used this method of dial attachment with these pins on several regulators that I know of: #'s 16, 19, 32, 62, 63, 70.

    Alternatively, I've also seen dials secured from the front with 4 screws on a few of these models.

    The movement in my #32 sits on a large and heavy bracket secured with two large thumbscrews up from the bottom on each side.
