It’s a very nice clock! I would think it is a reproduction from the 80s and with a German movement. Pictures of the back?

Salsagev, thanks for compliment. I pretty much have known in the back of my mind this clock was more than likely a product on the company that bought the Seth Thomas name and produces clocks today. But I have not been able to find out anything about it anywhere in the archives here or anywhere on the net. It is a fairly recent addition and I knew it had been recently serviced, so I have not even pulled the dial plate off to look at the movement. I have seen discussions here of there are some companies that make pretty decent weight driven movements used in more modern clocks. Any way it is a different concept piece that caught my eye.

This idea is taken from Thomas Jefferson's great clock at Monticello. You can see the day-of-the-week plaques on the wall. I think Jefferson is credited as first with this idea.

Found a sale listing online for a clock like mine this morning on FB. Seller stated clock was made 1972, and was had an asking price of $200. This is the only info I will have been able to find on this. Clock.
