    VINCENT is stamped on the back of this clock and I wondered if that was the model name? Can't find that name though anywhere associated with Waterbury clocks. The movement is stamped Sept 13 1898. The height is 16" and base is 14". This clock has been in our home for almost a century and still works fine. Any information would be appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to the NAWCC message board.

    Yes, your clock is the "Vincent" and is shown in a catalog illustration from 1903 in LY's Waterbury Clocks , Arlington Books 1989.
    It was available in either oak or walnut. It's an eight day clock, striking the hour on a coiled gong and the half hour on a bell. 16 inches high, 5 1/2 inch dial. The original cost was $5.50.

    The date stamped on the movement is the patent date and it would have been made for a number of years.
