Sessions Oak Drop Octagon, 8 day Sessions signed time only movement. Smaller than my other Drop Octagons with a 7" dial. Good looking clock that looks to be all original. Good intact label on the rear of the backboard. Runs like a well tuned Swiss watch, movement looks clean I oiled it before I put the dial back on. Haven't searched for a date yet but I will unless someone beats me to it. I like clocks like this in good shape and didn't pay a whole lot for it, I would say he gave it to me for half what he should have.

    I was going to buy it last weekend but didn't bring enough cash with me and there's no bank machines out where I was. Glad it was still there but I did miss out on a nice little Banjo but you know what they say "Sometimes you get the bear sometimes the bear gets you".

    Nice clock. I have the exact same clock, the one on the right in this trio of time zone clocks (kids in different areas of the country). Mine has Arabic dial. I find it a loud ticker but it is strong and reliable. Can't help you on the year. I always thought of it as around 1915 or so.

    The numerals stamped on the label are likely a date - 22-10 (?) = October 1922. Did you clean the brownish crud off the suspension spring? Looks unpalatable.

    Love how you have them set for the different Canadian time zones!!

    I once had what is basically a miniature Sessions "school house" 8 day time piece like yours. Believe it or not, it was one of the most original clocks I've come across. As she admired it so much, I gave it to the person who cleans my house. So, it was the center of a nice experience all around.

    This is a great time to acquire nice little clocks like these for reasonable prices. I can remember when they brought A LOT more money.

    Enjoy!

    Under the magnifying glass it says 22 + 10 so I would say your right Oct. 1922. Someone did some soldering on the suspension spring I got most of it off.
