Seth Thomas No. 2 Reg, Oak, C.1920
Seth Thomas Regulator #3 with Ball Standard Regulator Dial touched up, not repaint. Ball label in bottom of case. Glass reads "The Web C. Ball Co. Jewelers Cleveland O." in real gilt with red edging.
See a bunch of rare/unusual Seths and a couple of other makers, at:
I've posted this URL in other Message Board threads in the past, and it's appropriate here too.
ST "Hecla" quarter strike on cup bells. Cherry case. Fancy bob.
After looking at Bob's I was going to burn mine but decided to hold on...
Great Hecla David.
Here is the brother in Cherry also...the ATLAS.
Wonderful clocks, guys....beautiful condition and nice to see.
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.
Seth Thomas 8 day wood works, original dial, carved walnut splat, paw feet with Tiger Maple columns and a Plymouth Hollow label. Original lower tablet restored by Tom Moberg.
First clock is a Lunar, second is a Calendar # 1 and last is a Regulator #2 in Walnut.
This is my circa 1860 Plymouth Hollow Seth Thomas
Ball Railroad Standard #2 circa 1920
Beautiful clocks all!
Here are a few of mine
A few more.
Seth City Series Milan
Seth Regulator #18 Oak
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.
Better photos will be taken once the clock is fully restored (I have no idea when that will be).
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.
Nice clock....It most assuredly has the St. Louis look to it.
Glad to get the S/T thread back to the top...
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).
Some of my Seth Thomas clocks.........a Joker Alarm and and a Wardroom Ships clock.
I have the Student Lever which is very similar to the Joker but with a bell on top....
I love the Wardroom...I have lusted after one for a bit but never have seen one at the right time.
As an admirer of Mr. Jefferson and his gorgeous home, I have to say that I love that banjo.
Here is my #17, still not on the wall yet. Shawn
Not an easy clock to hang... a two man job.
I have a #17...great clocks that like to run.
I'll find a pic
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..
I saw a Wardroom at a NAWCC Regional years ago and passed on it...been sorry ever since...hard to find...especially in good condition.
Seth # 31, big brother to the # 17.
Very nice indeed....
Dueling 31's......Not as nice as yours although mine has jewelers glass in gilt....
Nice clocks all.
Set Thomas # 21 Hall Clock
Great clock....it strikes on bells doesn't it? I have seen them a couple of times but never owned one...
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.
Great clock with great finish...I especially like the burled panel and the glass....
Listed on our E-mart is a cool collection of Seth Thomas pillar and scroll clocks...with excellent photo...
Very nice clock, jacks61fd!!
(I especially like the bicycle pendulum!)
Thanks for the pic.
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....
Seth Thomas Marcy in oak
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.
Ah....did not see the mounting on the dial....
The Marcy is on my to do list...I have lusted after a good one for some time...I had an oak and a cherry Atlas and kept them waiting for a Hecla in the same wood as one or the other but finally gave up and sold the oak one...still have the Cherry...would like a walnut or cherry Marcy....
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?
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.
Thanks for all the pictures. I especially liked the #31 and #32 and other #17's. I have not actually seen those two others in person,so it was a real treat. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, Shawn
Seth Thomas "Beta" porcelain clock.
My only Seth Thomas, a short drop school house regulator with Ball Watch Company, Cleveland Ohio on the dial.
A good one to have. And I like the hat it's wearing.
