Extra Large (20") Postal Telegraph
Synchronous Electric Time Clock, c.1920

Extra Large (20") British Postal Telegraph Synchronous Electric Time Clock, c.1920 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From Vista CA

Here is a great piece of American history that can hang on a wall in your home or office, keep good time and be a reminder of the the storied past of the Postal Telegraph system. Click the images below to enlarge.


Physical: The large-diameter clock (20" with 15" dial) is in excellent, age-appropriate condition and retains the original paint on both the case and the dial.

Mechanical: These clocks were originally synchronous "slaves" to a master clock. However, like most, this one has been converted to a quartz movement that runs on a single AA battery and keeps great time. We had it hanging in our great room for years before it was replaced by a yet larger battery-powered self-winding clock, thus its availability now.


Comments: Wonderful vintage piece, silent-running clock. Keeps good time, looks great, needs a "good home". Priced to move...

Seth Thomas "Chatham" - Original Catalogue Drawing 1921-1922 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue)

 

Here is a great Seth Thomas "Chatham" model gallery clock that appeared in this configuration in the 1921-1922 catalogue at a cost of $14.00. It's a little more expensive now!

Physical: The quartered oak case, which measures 16" in diameter and 4" deep, has the original finish and is in excellent physical condition with some alligatoring (typical). The 12" diameter dial signed "Seth Thomas" has the original paint and is in excellent physical condition as well.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-only, spring-driven movement has recently been lubricated and is in excellent running condition. There is a hinged door on the bottom to access the original pendulum.

Comments: Great clock, great price. Call us to make it your own!

Seth Thomas City Series "Omaha" in Mahogany ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

We have just listed a batch of mostly Seth Thomas clocks for a local collector who is moving and who is more interested in finding "good homes" for his clocks than in reaping a big profit. Refreshing. His investment, your reward...!

This clock is from the "
City Series" that was so popular that we have a page about them in the Reference Library of our site. Check it out!

Physical: The mahogany case is in excellent age-appropriate physical condition and retains the original finish. It measures 10.75"w x 19"h x 4.5"d. The 5" dial is original to the clock and retains the original paint.


The damascened pendulum (very cool) is original to the clock as well. The original label remnant is present in the base of the clock.

Mechanical: The movement was removed from the case and cleaned in a heated ultrasonic cleaner by one of our technicians, then lubricated. As you can see in the photo above, it is clean as a whistle. It originally had an alarm function, but that has been removed (typical). The alarms were 1) annoying; and 2) did not shut off until they ran down and required the spring to be rewound daily. Enough already! The movement is in excellent running condition and features a very sonorous "cathedral gong" that you can see and hear in this YouTube film clip.

Comments: Nice clock. AMAZING budget-priced antique clock!
