Looking to purchase this clock. Did a search for this clock and did not see any cases like this. Did this company make this clock or is the case a marriage? Everything else from what I saw looks like it was part of the case. If case is original any idea on age? Later in the week I can supply more pictures, but want to know if it is worth pursuing to attain? Collectible pieces?
Sorry for all the questions. Info appreciated, thanks!

The SET Master clock in your photo appears to be an early model. Later models used the "eyebrow" styled case and the pilot dial and the "Warren's Patent Battery Gauge" are of the early style.

Unfortunately, the photo reveals only a wood pendulum rod sans bob which would probably have been a 7 lb or so lenticular bob.

In all likelyhood, the operating voltage for the master movement will be less than 24 Volts DC. Earlier versions of just about all master/slave systems used lower battery voltage.

Wow-you are always there with the information. Very reassuring that someone out there knows about these clocks.
Is this the bob you were mentioning:

It sounds like it might be a challenge to find?

Again, thank you!!!

I know this is from 2010, but this is an original clock case, Standard made this particular style around 1900. Usually they would have been made in mohogany or would have been stained to look like mohogany, Voltage would have been around 12v or less.
