    This is a nice example of an 8 day OG. It was made by Seth Thomas.

    The case is oversize, complemented by a dial with large arabic numerals.

    Ralph,

    Nice looking clock but are you sure that is an 8 Day? I ask because the movement looks like a 30 hour and while the weight appears fairly hefty, it doesn't look like the cord is compounded. Here are photos of a typical Seth Thomas 8 Day movement.

    Uhhhh...... caught me. I can't get away with anything.

    Maybe a moderator can correct the title.

    Thanks for catching it.

    Yes, this is certainly a thirty hour clock. I have one that is almost identical, also thirty hour, but with an alarm movement. I do have an eight day version, containing the same S.T. movement shown in Troy's example. The cases are both oversize, and nearly identical.
