CLASSIC, ELEGANT, AND SELDOM SEEN SHIPS BELL STRIKE ANTIQUE CLOCK WITH A LIMITED EDITION GORHAM FOUNDRY BRONZE SCULPTURE BASE SIGNED BY SCULPTURE ARTIST DARROT. THE MONTAUK IS FROM THE SETH THOMAS HIGH END SHIPS BELL STRIKE COLLECTION, CONSIDERED TO BE THE SETH THOMAS FINEST OFFERING OF THE PERIOD. THE MONTAUK IS THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER ANTIQUE CLOCK FROM THAT SERIES, AVAILABLE FOR DISPLAY AND DECORATING IN THE HOME OR OFFICE SETTING. THE SETH THOMAS MONTAUK TOOK ITS NAME FROM THE MONTAUK SEASIDE AREA OF THE HAMPTONS IN NEW YORK. IN 1928, THE MONTAUKS INSPIRATION AND DESIGN WAS INTENDED TO BE MARKETED TO PERSONS OF AFFULENCE, AND THE ORIGINAL PRICE COULD ONLY BE HANDLED BY WEALTHY PEOPLE. AS A RESULT OF THAT HALTED PRODUCTION, THE MONTAUK IS RARELY AVAILABLE IN TODAYS MARKET PLACE. I HAVE ONLY SEEN THREE IN MY DECADES OF RESTORATION. THE BRONZE SCULPTURE DESIGN IS VERY INTERESTING AND APPEALING, CAPTURING THE FULL BEAUTY OF THE SWIRLING ATLANTIC OCEAN BREAKERS, WITH NUMEROUS SEA LIFE CREATURES TO BE SEEN IN THE WAVES OF THE SCULPTURE. THIS IS AN ALL-ORIGINAL AND FULLY RESTORED MONTAUK – 1928 ANTIQUE SHIPS BELL STRIKE CLOCK MADE BY SETH THOMAS, AND LISTED IN NOTED AUTHORITY TRAN DUY LYS SETH THOMAS CLOCKS AND MOVEMENTS V2 3D EDITION PAGE 767, REFERENCE 2626. THE MONTAUK IS ANOTHER ONE I TRULY HATE TO PART WITH! THE CLOCK CAN BEST BE DESCRIBED AS A TRULY RARE AND EYE CATCHING ORIGINAL A DELIGHT TO VIEW, AND EASY TO DISPLAY IN ANY DECORATIVE SETTING. YOU WILL LOVE THIS CLOCK! I KNOW I DO! THE SIX INCH SILVERED DIAL WITH RAISED BRONZE NUMERALS IS QUITE READABLE FROM ACROSS A LARGE ROOM. COMPLEMENTING THE DIAL ARE THE ST SIGNATURE CUT BRASS SERPENTINE HANDS. THE ORIGINAL RICH-PATINA OF THE GORHAM FOUNDRY BRONZE SCULPTURE IS VIRTUALLY FLAWLESS AND FULLY INTACT. THIS IS SO HARD TO FIND A MONTAUK, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE FEW IN THE MARKET PLACE HAVE BEEN DAMAGED BY ATTEMPTS TO POLISH OR CLEAN THE SCULPTURE CASE, RESULTING IN A NEGATIVE TRANSFORMATION RATHER THAN ADDED BEAUTY. BE SURE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOS TO SEE THE REVEALED ELEGANCE OF THE TOTALLY ORIGINAL MONTAUK. DIAL, PREMIUM HEAVY POLISHED BRASS BEZEL, CONVEX AND BEVELED DIAL GLASS GIVE THE MONTAUK AN ADDED TOUCH OF CLASS AND DISTINCTION. AS INFORMATION, PHOTOS 4 AND 5 HAVE HIGH RESOLUTION CLOSE UPS OF THE.

THE EIGHT DAY FINE ROUND SETH THOMAS 115B SHIPS BELL STRIKE MOVEMENT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DISASSEMBLED, INSPECTED AND CLEANED WITH ULTRASONICS. ALL WORN PIVOT BUSHINGS WERE REPLACED, AND THE PLATFORM BALANCE ASSEMBLY WAS INSPECTED, SERVICED, AND REGULATED. BOTH THE TIME AND THE STRIKE MAINSPRINGS WERE LET DOWN, CLEANED, INSPECTED, TESTED, LUBRICATED AND RELOADED IN THE BARRELS. MAINSPRINGS ARE A CRITICAL ENERGY LINK TO ASSURE EXTENDED AND RELIABLE LONG TERM PERFORMANCE. ALL OPERATIONAL ASPECTS OF THE MOVEMENT WERE INSPECTED AND CORRECTED, IF NECESSARY, READYING THE MOVEMENT FOR YEARS AND YEARS OF SERVICE.
