Does anyone recognize this battery-operated movement? It's from an early 1900's wall clock, and used to run off of two dry cells. There is no stamp on the movement and no label in the clock. Help!
Thanks,
Todd

Good afternoon, Todd!

You might consider contacting Ken Reindel at Ken's Clock Clinic ( kensclockclinic.com ). He is very expert in electric movements of most vintages. I believe I have seen one like this attributed to the New York Standard Watch Company.

You could begin with a Forum search or a look in the Electric Horology section. There is also an NAWCC book, 150 Years of Electric Horology, which I am sure is available in the NAWCC Library. On page 50, there is a small picture of a movement that looks a bit like yours.

Best regards!

Tim Orr

What Steve said above and to just add, I believe it is a center seconds sweep movement I believe.
Cheers,
James
