Much like Regulator No. 2 for Seth Thomas, the mainstay industrial regulator produced in highest quantity by E. Howard & Co. was its Regulator No. 70, which, unlike the Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2, was made in several sizes, with dials up to 24" in diameter as you can see from the year 1900 catalogue below. This model was also widely used in schools, most notably in all of the schools in New York City.

E.Howard Regulator 70 - Antique Clocks Guy

Physical: The oak case measures 15.5"w x 31"h x 5" deep. It has recently had the finish restored. The 12" dial, signed "E. Howard & Co. Boston retains the original paint and is in in excellent condition. The hands and weight are original. The weight on this style clock is large and rectangular piece that rides down flat behind the original damascened pendulum and is hidden by a "weight board" that's behind the pendulum inside the bottom section of the clock.

E. Howard Regulator No. 70 in Mahogany, c. 1900 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Mechanical: The signed high-quality eight-day retaining-power movement is original, has just been professionally overhauled, and is in excellent running order. The pendulum tie-down is also present.

Comments: Great clock, great price! Will it be hanging in your home or office soon?

Seth Thomas Office Calendar No 5 - Original Catalogue Drawing

Original Catalogue Drawing

We've only had a handful of this Seth Thomas model in the past and are delighted to have "two flavors" to offer you at present (see STF-0901 below), one in walnut burl and this one in oak – perhaps one for home and one for the office? This is a large clock, 50" in length, and will make a statement wherever it is hung. This model was featured in the 1879-1893 catalogues.

Be sure to look at the unusual viewing window in the bottom through which you can see the pendulum bob. This is a great example of the high woodworking skill and phenomenal attention to detail typical of the Seth Thomas firm.

Physical: This Office Calendar No. 5 is in excellent physical condition and measures 24"w x 50"h x 8"d. The finish is original as is the wavy glass, pendulum and weight. The 14" diameter dials both have the original paint. Both are in good, age- appropriate physical condition.

The roller papers, hands and weight are original (there has been a small repair to the calendar hand).

Mechanical: The signed 8-day, time-only, single-weight clock movement and the 31-day R.T. Andrews-patent calendar movement are both original to the clock and in excellent running order. Both were recently professionally overhauled.

Comments: This is a model that is not often available. It is so popular that (beware) the Chinese export crummy quality knockoffs. This clock is the real McCoy waiting and ready for you... and at a great price.

Rare Gazo “XG-F” Model ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

In the later days of their business the Gazo Family Clock Factory created a very limited run of clocks with a simple "XG-" moniker (followed by a letter). Over the many years we have dealt in Gazo clocks we have only seen a handful of XG clocks.

Prior to this clock coming to us we had only seen the original sketch of this model (left) and a photo of one other. According to Ed Gazo, (because this had an unusual serial number configuration with which we were somewhat unfamiliar) this is the eleventh unit in the production sequence of this model. We do not know how many they made. But, knowing their production m.o., we would guess that it was not more than twenty or thereabout.

Physical: The walnut-stained alder case, which measures 30"w x 82.5"h x 13.5"d has been cleaned and waxed and is in excellent overall condition. Interestingly (and very convenient) the side doors on this model open as does the base.

This model features an 11" diameter porcelain dial (12" counting the brass bezel) that is in excellent physical condition. The weights and pendulum are original and also in excellent physical condition. The finials on top lift off for safe transport.

And, as long as we are on the issue of transport, unless you wish to visit us and pick up the clock, we will arrange blanket-wrap transport for you. You pay the shipper directly, so we don't mark up their fees.

This clock also has a very shallow profile so it will fit nicely in a trafficked area, not protruding far from the wall. Here's a quick left photo that came from the consignor prior to us cleaning and waxing the cabinet, but which should give you a good idea of the profile.

Mechanical: The eight-day chiming Kieninger movement is in excellent mechanical condition and has recently been serviced by our technician here. Kieninger is a large German clock works manufacturer that is now owned by the American firm H. Miller. This is the exact same movement that was originally in the clock but a factory replacement installed for our consignor prior to delivery here so it will have a much longer useful lifespan prior to any future repairs. It was installed new in 2015. Again, it has also just been serviced and is ready for years of great service in your home or office.

The clock chimes on the quarter hours and strikes the hours on deep, resonant chime rods. It features (selectable) Westminster, Whittington and St Michael's chime tunes and can also be switched off.

Comments: This is a wonderful design that will enhance any room where it resides. Because of its modest height, it will fit an any room. Because of its modest price it should fit nicely in any budget, too. Would look great with a red ribbon around it for a Christmas or Hanukkah! Please give us a call to start the process.

Ship From Vista CA

Read about the Gazo Carmel in our Antique Clocks Reference Library ~ Antique Clocks Guy
(original catalogue Photo)

 

Here's one of the most popular of the large wall clocks from the Gazo Family Clock Factory.

Physical: The oak case, which measures 60"h x 16"w x 13d is in excellent physical condition as you can seen in the photos below. The solid oak case has been thoroughly cleaned and waxed.

The front door features convex glass above and beveled glass below. There are also side glass panels through which you can view the inside of the cabinet and the movement. Note the beautiful original etched pendulum bob with solid brass "lyre", and the beautiful porcelain beat plate behind the pendulum.

This case has serial number "CTP-496-O" on the back upper right-hand corner. We questioned Ed Gazo and he said "CTP" stood for "Carmel with Torrey Pines top", the nomenclature they were using for this particular later-style case in the 1980s. This was the 496th in this model production sequence that spanned numerous years.

The 8" etched brass dial features the Gazo name as well as porcelain "cartouche" numerals. Ed Gazo also mentioned that the cartouches of this period were made in Germany instead of by earlier suppliers in France and Spain.

Mechanical: The eight-day chiming clock mechanism has just been serviced and is in excellent mechanical/running condition.

And, the best part of the movement on this clock is that it plays not only the "Westminster", but also "Whittington" and "St. Michael's" tunes on the hour. Alternatively, you can switch it off, but it is a very mellow and sonorous chime. Read about clock chime tunes in our Reference Library!

Comments: We don't see this model too often as families who own them tend to keep and pass between generations. And this one is at a "deal of deals" price. We've sold this model for as much as $2,450 in the past.

Give us a call to make it your own. We will make the shipping-related arrangements for you.

Seth Thomas Regulator No 2 - Original Catalogue Drawing 1904 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Catalogue Photo - 1881

 

Here is a fine example of the much sought-after Regulator No. 2 that was widely used in commercial applications. This Seth Thomas model is in harder-to-find mahogany and is in excellent physical and mechanical condition as you will see in the photos below.

Physical: The mahogany case with original finish (crazing) measures 15.5"w x 34"h x 5"d. The 12" dial is in excellent condition and bears the original paint. It has been sealed to prevent flaking. There is some scratching on the backboard and minor indentation on the lower left bezel/bow tie area. There is an original label in very good condition in the inside bottom of the case
. The dial support board is present.

The brass weight and pendulum are both original to the clock as are the hands and glass. In addition, this clock has all five of the "tits" on the bottom that are commonly missing.

Mechanical: The highly sought after trapezoidal 77B movement with deadbeat escapement and maintaining power was just professionally overhauled and is in excellent running condition.

Comments: Great clock. Foundational to any serious collection and a great addition to any room just as a simple decorator piece. Give us a call to start the process.

Here is the matching calendar clock to the Welch Regulator No. 5 that we have on American Clocks, pg 2. It's a beauty – perhaps you should consider both of them as a matched pair?

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 19"w x 52"h x 5"d is in excellent physical condition. It appears to have been overcoated at some point in the past, where the existing thin shellac coat is "melted" with solvent to be brushed smooth, rubbed out and then an additional coat added. It looks great as you will see in the photos below. The 10" diameter dials are both in excellent original condition with original paint.

Mechanical: The two-weight, time-only movement has recently been professionally overhauled and the B.B. Lewis perpetual calendar movement just serviced. Both are keeping time and date well.
(Be sure to read the history link just above for background on this inventor.)

Comments: This is a great clock worthy of deep consideration by any serious clock collector. First time we've ever had access to the calendar configuration of this case.

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...

(original catalogue)

 

Here's a hefty Seth Thomas mantle clock of which we've only had a couple available to us over the past 18+ years. It is extremely popular with collectors and generally difficult to find. So much so that some opportunist company is making a cheesy, battery-powered "quasi-copy" that is offered at retail online. Is nothing sacred?

This one is the real McCoy and was apparently in a corporate setting and has a brass inventory tag on the lower front-right corner (that could be removed as it's held by a very small pin nail – we'd leave it if it were ours). The back has a factory date stencil of 1888.

Physical: The walnut case measures 14" w x 18"h x 7"d and retains its beautiful original finish. The 8" diameter Roman numeral dial with subsidiary seconds dial is also original to the clock. It has either been repainted or touched up sometime in the past and looks great.

The sides feature raised-relief carving of a Roman man and woman (we're not on the left-of-left Princeton campus so we still use that apparently now terribly non-PC terminology)! The front of the clock features four quarter-fan carvings and a gilt trim ring around the dial inside the door.

Mechanical: The heavy spring-driven, eight-day, time and gong-strike movement was recently professionally cleaned and lubricated and is ready for years of great service for you. It retains the original Geneva stops and pendulum. This particular movement strikes the hours slowly on a deep, resonant "cathedral chime". The original Seth Thomas catalogue described it as a "Superior Movement"!

Comments: Most American mantle clocks we see don't do much for us, but this clock is one of those rare exceptions. From the detail on the front door, typical to Seth Thomas of that era, to the detailed carving on the sides, this clock is a real visual delight. Perhaps it belongs on the credenza behind your desk in the office; we'll let you decide on its new location. All you have to do is give us a call or send us a note to start the purchase process...

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 6 in Cherry ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Ship From So. CA

One of the most popular Seth Thomas weight-driven wall clocks is Regulator No. 6. This model was so popular that it was copied and re-released in the 1970s by General Time, the company that bought the Seth Thomas assets and name (and subsequently folded).

THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION, but an original clock.

Physical: The very difficult-to-find cherry case, which measures 49"h x 16.5"w x 6" d bears the original finish that has been thoroughly cleaned and is in excellent physical condition.

Seth Thomas Regulator No. 6 in Cherry ~ Antique Clocks Guy

The 10" diameter dial was professionally repainted at some point in the past (typical for Seth Thomas clocks, where the dials were not primed at the factory). The glass appears original. The finials, damascened pendulum bob, pulley, and beat plate are original.

Mechanical: This model uses the same time-only, weight-driven movement that's in the workhorse Regulator No. 2. The original 80-beat movement features lantern pinions, Graham pallets. This one has just been overhauled and is in excellent running order, ready for years of great service for you.

Comments: Don't miss this one if you've been seeking a clean and original Seth Thomas regulator in cherry.

Gilbert Regulator 12 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is one of the larger American regulators from Gilbert that is comparable to the much sought-after Waterbury Regulator No. 7 though this model is 10" longer (see listing below). This clock, which we understand originally hung in the Claypool Hotel (1902-1966), is in spectacular condition and deserves your serious consideration.

Physical: The walnut case, which measures 30"w x 92"h x 11"d is in excellent physical condition and has the original finish, which has recently been thoroughly cleaned and polished. The glass appears to be original, too. However, its retaining strips were in poor condition so they, like the dial surround board, they were recently faithfully recreated by our Los Angeles museum restorer.

The "lyre" pendulum is original to the clock and is in excellent physical condition. The 12" diameter porcelain dial with "moon" hands and sweep seconds hand is in excellent original condition.

Mechanical: The eight-day Swiss-made pinwheel movement has just been professionally overhauled and is in excellent, precise timekeeping condition. Like most Swiss pinwheel movements, this one is contained in an iron "dust-proof" box to protect the integrity of the mechanics and ensure precision timekeeping.

Comments: This is one of the classic big American Jeweler's Regulators ready for years of great service. Will it be in the lobby of your company, or on a prominent wall in your home? Your choice. All it takes is a phone call to start the purchase process.

Shipping: We will help arrange blanket-wrap transport by a specialty mover whom you can pay directly for their services and know that your clock will arrive in excellent condition as it is now.
