    So, the consensus is for me to keep my grubby paws out of the movement.
    I can respect that, as I definitely do not want to booger things up!

    Are there any Professional Clockmakers in the Greater Cleveland,OH area, that a forum member would recommend to get my Regulator regulatin' again??

    Also, are there any resources that I can use to determine the approximate age of my clock?

    Kitchen/Mantle - Reads Waterbury on back, Seth Thomas on face

    Hello, I'm new here, just getting started with this clock. It's been in the family forever (believed since new), it's just been passed to me, didn't see a clock quite like this posted so thought I'd add it in.

    I'll be in other posts looking forward to help on "what to do" with this clock.

    Bob Markowitz's thread on a NH full-size T/O Steeple brought to mind my 19 1/8" tall 30-hour Waterbury steeple, the Sharp Gothic Extra. It has a nice pendulum that was worth a fair amount of the price in my opinion. I'll also put up myWaterbury figure clock, the Viborg, and the small iron case (7 5/16" high) called the Pandora, which is not in Tran. Both of the latter two have been shown elsewhere. The steeple I've owned for some time; it's currently on the disabled list with a broken spring.

    And a couple of wall clocks, the Prescott (shown in Tran from 1891 catalogue), with a replacement pendulum. It came with a Jacot pendulum, as shown in Tran, missing its needle, and I put in this one, which is also a Waterbury, until I found either needle or better pendulum. The octagon long drop is the Heron (Tran -1906), which has a slightly wider than usual "drop box." Both are time only, of course, and are excellent timekeepers. I've long thought that the quality of the Waterbury movement tends to be overlooked in favor of the Seth Thomas and Ansonia movements (against which, I hasten to add, I have absolutely nothing).

    Re: Kitchen/Mantle - Reads Waterbury on back, Seth Thomas on face

    I would have to say that someone has "messed with" your family clock. With the very readable Waterbury label, it would seem to be a Waterbury clock, however, it has a Seth Thomas dial as well as a Seth Thomas gong stand and pendulum. If the movement fits the dial, I would have to assume that someone has switched the movement and related parts at some point in time. As far as what to do, If you want to make the clock back to near original shape, you could try to find a junked Waterbury "kitchen" clock and use the movement and dial for yours.

    Hello,

    I am in the UK and fairly new to collecting clocks but the bug has bitten. Could anyone help identify the model names and dates for my 3 Waterbury clocks. They are

    1. What I can only describe as a Waterbury German Vienna style wall clock
    2. A drop dial, not sure if the dial has been repainted, it looks old but is that upper case 'WATERBURY' and the logo below the hands original?
    3. A pretty little 30 hour Waterbury alarm.

    Thanks in advance for any help on these.

    Nicksey;

    The octagon drop clock looks like the 12" Drop Octagon, shown in Tran Duy Ly's book on waterbury clocks from the 1891 catalogue. However, waterbury also made a 10" and an 8" Drop Octagon. Inches refer to the dial size. They were oak or rosewood veneered. Yours appears to be rosewood.

    The cottage clock seems to be the Cottage No. 2, on the basis of the position of the winding arbor and the style of the top. Tran shows it from the 1883 catalogue.

    For both of these it is possible that they were also made some years either side of the years I mentioned.

    I have not yet found the Vienna-style clock but will continue looking. At first sight, I wondered whether the clock case is in fact American. It seems to be missing a top piece of some sort, which might be helpful in identifying, if it is a Waterbury that is shown in Tran's book. I wonder, too, whether it might be missing some finials at the bottom. We are always coming up against clocks that are not in Tran's books for one reason or another.

    Stephen,

    Thanks for your help with those. the drop clock does have a 12" dial so that would be right.

    The Vienna Style Clock I have only had for a couple of days now, I agree with your view that it might be missing a piece from the top, the previous owner had it for 25 years and says it has not had anything on the top during that time so if it did have one then it would appear to be long gone by now. I don't know if I would ever be able to find a replacement for the top, if there had been one, but don't really mind because I really like this clock with or without it.

    Thanks again

    I thought I would include my first Waterbury clock. I just won it on Ebay this week and it's still in transit. I'm including some of the auction listing photos. It looks like a typical Connecticut 2-train 8 day time/strike countwheel movement with a passive bell strike on the half hour. I've been wanting a clock with a passive cup bell half hour strike for a long time, but get outbid every time. Luckily, I was the only bidder on this one and got it for what I consider a bargain.

    When my wife looks at the package when it arrives, I plan on telling her that there's only a "berry" inside and not to worry. She thinks I have enough clocks! :rolleyes:

    It looks like it's in good shape and needs only minimal restoration. The wavy top looks interesting.

    Any ideas on it's age, model name?

    This is the Home No. 3, shown in Tran's waterbury book from the 1925 catalogue, although it is described as having hour and half-hour cathedral gong strike. But no reason different years couldn't present different features.

    Steve,

    Thanks for the information! This board is so useful! Looking at some of the other Waterbury clocks in this thread, I had no idea they made so many high-quality beautiful models. Thus this far, my collecting has been limited to the less expensive 8 day t/s countwheel Connecticut mantel clocks.

    Tran does not list a Catania, but I would guess possibly in the range of 1895-1905.

    Waterbury Leicester Visible Escapement.

    I have fairly new this clock collecting group. This is a Waterbury Leicester circa 1910 or so. I bought it for 50 bucks at a local flea market in the San Francisco bay area, last week. After a bit of a clean-up and wind-up it took off and is keeping great time. So far this is the best I have found. It is a pleasure to see all of everyones' great clocks. Great motivator to do more.:rolleyes:

    Unusual Waterbury Kitchen Clock

    Here is my unusual Waterbury kitchen clock. This was a true kitchen clock because when I aquired it, it was covered in kitchen grease....I mean completely saturated with it.
    This clock is named the CLINTON, was made in 1890 and sold for $6.25
    It strikes on a very deep mellow gong. 74186.jpg

    Re: Unusual Waterbury Kitchen Clock

    I've posted these elsewhere, but I thought I'd add them to the Waterbury thread. They are, after all, Waterbury clocks, though with a connection to Chauncey Jerome. The one on the left is one I've seen referred to as the "Square Rose," although I'm not certain whether that's what Waterbury actually called it. The case was designed (Design patent #959, Oct 20, 1857) by Samuel Bryan Jerome, one of Chauncey's sons. For various reasons (see Waterbury Square Rose for a fuller explanation), I believe this clock started its life while Chauncey was setting up Waterbury's case-making shop after he went bankrupt in 1856.

    The one on the right has a Chauncey Jerome designed case (Design patent #883, April 14, 1857). Because of the A.S. Platt & Co movement, I think it also dates to around the time Chauncey was working for Waterbury. See Waterbury Clock (Jerome patent case) for more info. 74192.jpg 74193.jpg

    I own a Waterbury mantle clock that was bought by my great grandparents in CO c1900.

    It is plain wood, made by Waterbury Clock Company, "Kentucky" model. I don't see a model number or date anywhere. The simple base label shows the company name/address, model name, dealer names/addresses.

    The finish is light brown with gold pinstriping and star design below the face. The face is simple black numerals, eggshell background.

    The case measures H12.5", W9", D5.25". Arched top. The base is raised on short (1/2"), gilt feet.

    The pendulum isn't visible from the outside, only seen behind the rear access door.

    The clock strikes the number of hours, on the hour, and rings a bell on the half hour. No chimes.

    After seeing photos of other Waterburys, mine seems to be an entry-level, low cost model.

    I am new to NAWCC and don't see how to post photos. Any ideas?

    Please reply to this post with any information or resources that I could use to learn more about this family heirloom. 77223.jpg 77224.jpg 77225.jpg

    Ken, I don't know if a public library would have a copy, but worth a try. It can be purchased from Timesavers, # 15196. A little pricy unless you are going to get seriously into clocks and collecting them.

    It could also be borrowed from the NAWCC lending library, if you were a member.

    This is the only Waterbury I own. It is an alarm clock that needs to be cleaned & oiled to run again. 75011.jpg 75013.jpg 75014.jpg

    I want to Identify this Waterbury and possibly date it.

    I went through the Tran Duy Ly Waterbury book and couldn't find the model. Looks like a cast iron case. Does the movement appear to be original to the case?

    I got this one a while back, my only Waterbury so far. Hasn't had an easy life but I have seen worse and it runs well. 79400.jpg 79401.jpg

    Looks pretty good to me, Gil. Nice indeed. I like this style of column clock. What are the dimensions?

    Here is mine, not sure what model it is (I have a suspicion that only the mechanism is Waterbury and the case is a 'foreigner').
    The case has a few layers of poorly applied varnish and the mechanism has been oiled liberally so that will be stripped down and cleaned.
    The face has some wear, I think I'll give it a gentle clean and leave it as it is. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what else I could do with it ?
    Thanks in advance 80088.jpg 80089.jpg

    Here is my one and only Waterbury clock.
    It's cast iron, the paint is wonderful. It's missing a couple of decorative brackets.
    Any ideas as to age?

    Brian, it looks like the "Louis" from 1905, as shown in my Waterbury book (Tran Duy Ly's). Can't see the top or feet on yours to be sure. Should be 17 inches tall, 9 1/4 wide, with a 5 1/2 inch dial.
