PLEASE OBSERVE THAT NEARLY HALF OF MY LISTING PORTFOLIO CONTAINS INFORMATION ABOUT THE MECHANICAL ASPECTS AND MOVEMENT RESTORATION OF THE CLOCK. YOU DESERVE, AND SHOULD EXPECT, A RESTORED ANTIQUE SETH OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND RELIABILITY. I STRIVE TO EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS RATHER THAN SIMPLY SELL YOU AN ANTIQUE CLOCK. THE SETH THOMAS #124 WESTMINSTER MOVEMENT HAS BEEN COMPLETELY SERVICED, INCLUDING: FULL DISASSEMBLY, INSPECTION, CLEANING, REBUSHING AT KEY BEARING WEAR POINTS, REASSEMBLY, LUBRICATION, AND BENCH TESTING USING ELECTRONIC AND MECHANICAL INSTRUMENTATION. THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE INCLUDED IN THE INSPECTION, ALONG WITH CORRECTIONS IF NECESSARY. BUSHING AND PIVOT WEAR OR ROUGHNESS. ANY BENT PIVOTS OR OTHER PIVOT CONDITIONS. CONDITION OF ARBORS, GEARS, PINIONS. CONDITION OF THE CHIME HAMMERS AND HAMMER ASSEMBLY. CONDITION OF THE CHIME TRAIN AND HOUR STRIKE TRAIN GOVERNORS TO INSURE THAT PROPER GEAR SPEED IS MAINTAINED. CONDITION OF THE LEATHER TIPS ON THE CHIME HAMMERS TO INSURE APPROPRIATE TONE, TIMBRE AND DECAY OF THE NOTE WHEN EACH CHIME IS STRUCK. REPLACEMENT OF OLD FATIGUED MAINSPRINGS WITH NEW FINEST GRADE MAINSPRINGS, NOT INEXPENSIVE SHORT-CUT ONES. NUMEROUS ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT ARE COMPONENTS OF PROPER SERVICING. IMPORTANT: NOTICE SUPERSIZE PHOTO 11. THE LEFT PHOTO INDICATES AN ELECTRONIC TEST UNDERWAY TO MINIMIZE THE PENDULUM BEAT ERROR, WITH AN OBJECTIVE OF APPROACHING ZERO. THIS RESTORED #124 MOVEMENT MET AND HELD ZERO BEAT ERROR, INDICATING A VERY HEALTHY MOVEMENT. A SIMILAR SETUP IN THE RIGHT PHOTO OF PICTURE 11 IS USED TO TEST AND CALIBRATE THE PENDULUM BEAT RATE IN ORDER TO ASSURE ACCURATE TIME REGULATION. THE OBJECTIVE BEAT RATE FOR THE #124 MOVEMENT IS 10,584 BEATS PER HOUR. THIS FULLY RESTORED #124 MOVEMENT EASILY REGULATED TO THE PROPER BEAT RATE, WITH PLENTY OF ADJUSTMENT LEEWAY FOR FINE TUNING TO YOUR PARTICULAR HOME ATMOSPHERE ENVIRONMENT. AS INFORMATION, ERRATIC PENDULUM BEAT ERROR AND/OR BEAT RATE TESTS THAT WILL NOT STABILIZE ARE INDICATIVE OF HEALTH PROBLEMS IN THE MOVEMENT. THIS IS ANOTHER REASON WHY I ALWAYS RUN THOROUGH TESTS AND ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES ON MY DISTINCTIVECLOCKS! THE RESTORED #124 MOVEMENT SWINGS A PENDULUM ARC AMPLITUDE WIDTH OF OVER 3 1/4 INCHES AS MEASURED FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BOB AT LEFT SWING TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOB AT RIGHT SWING. THIS EXCEEDS ORIGINAL SPECS AND INDICATES A STRONG AND HEALTHY MOVMENT WITH VIRTUALLY NO FRICTION AND PLENTY OF RESERVE ENERGY. BEWARE OF A #124 MOVEMENT WITH 2 1/4 INCHES OR LESS PENDULUM AMPLITUDE ARC WIDTH; IT IS A TALE-TALE INDICATOR OF POOR MOVEMENT HEALTH! ALL OF MY DISTINCTIVECLOCKS SETH THOMAS ANTIQUE CLOCKS ARE FULLY RESTORED IN EVERY WAY UNLESS SPECIFICALLY STATED OTHERWISE. MY SINCERE HOPE IS TO EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS IN EVERY WAY. ENJOY THE LISTING IF YOU NEED OR DESIRE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE BE IN TOUCH WITH ME, STEVE. INFORMATION ABOUT THE SOUND FILES. FOUR SOUND FILES OF THE SETH CHIME 92 1926 WITH #124 MOVEMENT IN OPERATION ARE AVAILABLE IN. PENDULUM BEAT-ESCAPEMENT/VERGE/CRUTCH AND TIME GEAR TRAIN OPERATION SOUNDS OF THE #124 MOVEMENT LISTEN FOR CLEAN AND EVEN SOUND, REGULARITY, AND THE ABSENCE OF ODD NOISES. WESTMINSTER SEQUENCES AT 7:15 7:30 7:45 – LISTEN FOR PURE NOTES WITH GOOD TIMBRE, RICH DECAY AND ZESTY TEMPO OF THE MOVEMENT RATHER THAN SLOW/SLUGGISH TEMPO.
