Ah, I see. I don’t know why I thought it was Sessions!It's a Gilbert.
Is it not a marriage?I’d only go for the second one (New Haven) because of the poor condition of the dial on the Gilbert. You could probably get the New Haven for $35-40 alone.
Yes it is.The second clock is most surely a Seth Thomas with wrong movement and dial.
I might let the shop know it’s a marriage and they might come down on the price.I'm thinking about a movement practice clock. Others seem to be thinking about a restoration project, that will result in a presentable piece when your done. That might be the best course to take. The money won't be much different!!! These days, clocks are considered pretty much junk (by most) no matter what condition they are in. Willie X
A very good rule. They are very hard to replace and you’ll end up spending lots. Also buy no clock with hot glue.On the first two clocks, for practice either one is fine. My number one no-no for buying is "buy no clock without a complete bezel" so if you are going to fix it up go for the Gilbert.
Yes, it’s a demonic solution.Speaking of hot glue, I bought a cuckoo clock with hot glue holding the whistle assembly. It wouldn't work because the whistle was glued in too low and the bellow couldn't open fully.
It’s not only missing glass but missing the entire door and hinge broken in half.Wow, I never even noticed the missing glass on the second clock. Great advice.
