Fully Restored Seth Thomas Time Only 12 Gallery Clock With 12 Inch Dial
FULLY RESTORED SETH THOMAS TIME ONLY 12 GALLERY CLOCK WITH 12 INCH DIAL. The clock has a fully and properly restored Model 41AC movement. Seth Thomas made the Chatham model of gallery clock for over 20 years, starting in 1904 and ending in 1924. The date of manufacture is in code on the back of this clock, it was made in October of 1919. The case is in very good condition and everything appears to be original. The dial is in nice condition with only a small amount of paint loss. Please take a close look at picture no. 3, there is a piece of veneer missing from the flat side of the case. You cannot see it but I need to point it out. I ask you to please examine the 11 high resolution pictures carefully as they provide much of the description for this fine timepiece. Case has an outside diameter of 16 inches. Clock comes complete with the original pendulum and a quality reproduction winding key complete with the Seth Thomas logo. WHAT MAKES A CLOCK A GOOD VALUE? The rules of economics are fairly straightforward. Simply put, it is almost impossible to spend a little and get a lot. Antique and vintage clocks follow these rules as well. I have tried through the photos to show the basic steps that I do in restoring these wonderful machines to their original state. My goal is to provide you with a quality time piece that will provide enjoyment and be a source of pride in your home for years to come. Equally important to me is to provide you with a clock that I believe will retain its value over the years. That is what I think constitutes real value in antique and vintage clocks. MY PHILOSOPHY ON CLOCKS AND CLOCK MOVEMENTS. The only way to properly repair a movement is to completely disassemble, clean and inspect all parts, and make the needed repairs by proper horoligical methods. This includes the rebushing of all worn holes and the polishing of any rough pivots. The movements are then reassembled, lubricated with a high quality clock oil and test run for 8 days. This is a very time intensive process but is the only correct way to properly recondition a clock movement. You should expect a movement repaired in this manner to run for ten years trouble-free. I have been doing clock repair for over 36 years. I apprenticed under an Oregon State licensed repairman and have been a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) since 1981. I do not make a living doing this; it has become a passion of mine. Once they are made like new mechanically, I put them up for sale in the hopes of paying for my materials and upgrading my personal collection. My hope is also to provide you with an heirloom to cherish for years to come. I also provide a set of General Clock Instructions that will answer about 95% of the questions that may arise during the set up of the clock. Beautiful clock, just as described.
