    This is an old one, time and calendar only. The movement is marked CD on the front plate with no other markings. If needed, I'll post pictures when I get it cleaned up.

    I guess I can give you a case pic now :) The flash washed out the dial a bit, but I think you can make it out OK.

    Gilbert Regulator B. With calendar, Tran shows it from 1901 catalogue. Without calendar, Tran shows it from 1910 catalogue.

    Any town school board of education would come under criticism for wastefull spending to purchase schoolroom clocks with calendar attachment when the same clock could be bought for fifty-cents less.

    I doubt that calendar clocks were actually used in public school classrooms.

    My point is that it has become commonplace to refer to short-drop octagon clocks as school clocks unless provenance can be shown that the subject timepiece was used in a classroom setting. :cyclops:

    Thanks, Les. The owner of this one says that both he and his father (school janitor) remember this one from their school days, and when the school was scheduled for destruction, he bought it. This one sold for $7.00 new .... or maybe it was the $7.50 model. I suppose it could have been in one of the offices where they needed the extra perks :D

    I agree. What was used in the "Principal's Office" need not be what was in the classrooms. BTW, I have a one-off clock with this clock's movement. I find it to be a good runner.
