Hello all, I am welcoming all opinions on how far I should restore my Seth Thomas #2 tower clock. I spoke to the guy I purchased it from and he informed me it came from a Jewelry Store in Gloversville, NY. I looked up the record and discovered this clock was used to replace the old movement in a Brown Street Clock. This would explain the light corrosion and oxidation on the movement. I am definitely going to dismantle and clean the clock. A lot of the old gold paint is gone from the pendulum and suspension bar. Of course the brass is oxidized. My question is, do I polish and paint the appropriate parts, so it looks new again, or clean it up and keep it pretty much the same. Thanks in advance for your input.
