    Hi,
    Asking for a friend without internet, was there an American OG Seth Thomas 12inch drop dial clock with alarm mechanism ? His dial has a hole at centre appx 1 inch dia, its an 8 sided case and original face with Roman Numerals.

    Also any pics of such a clock are welcome.

    Any good reference sites or books also welcome.

    I believe that these are original but have only seen them in the import Seth Thomas Drop Octagons shipped into the USA from India.

    Thanks,

    looking on the www today I see the following

    http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/9296152

    Interesting to see what the alarm version looked like, made by Seth Thomas factory as opposed to made for factories, as my friend I think misinterpreted the description of the auction house.

    I am confused though by the India import, are these India made ? how come such America clocks are coiming into the USA ?...excuse my ignorance, I am a mere messenger here.

    His movement doesnt have any alarm mechanism remaining, maybe the face is not original to the movement.

    Another thread on this forum in 2007 also refers to face with hole and maybe a forced marriage !
