The Gazo "Coronado" (named for a harbor-front San Diego community) and "San Marcos" (named for the neighboring community in which the Clock Guy lives) were the most popular models made by the Gazo Family Clock Factory. Here is a great example for your consideration:

Physical: The dark red oak case, which measures 17"w x 40"h x 11"d, is in excellent condition with the original finish. It has just been thoroughly cleaned and waxed and looks great!

The 8" diameter etched brass dial with cartouche porcelain numerals bears the Gazo signature, as does the inside of the door ("Gazo"). The beautiful cast brass "Swan" pendulum and leaded "fern glass" door add to the ambience of this clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day rod-chiming movement has just been professionally serviced by our technician and is in excellent running order. It plays Westminster and Ave Maria
chimes and can also be switched off if you wish.


Comments: This beautiful clock is small enough to go in a hallway or a kitchen, yet grand enough to adorn an entry. The rich, resonant chime tone will charm everyone. The photos below tell the story better than we can with words. The following chapter is your phone call to us to make it your own!

Gazo La Costa in Dark Alder ~ Antique Clocks Guy

Gazo La Costa in Dark Alder ~ Antique Clocks Guy
("North Wind Crown")

Ship From Escondido CA

(original catalogue)

 

This one is in not a shot-in-the-dark, but nearly! In the nearly 23 years since we started our online store this is only the second Gazo La Costa we've ever had available to us. So, let's start right off with the consignor's great provenance story on this clock:

"I had loaned a .22 semi automatic Beretta pistol to my brother for some target shooting. He returned it to me at my office.
I put it in my briefcase and forgot about it. The next morning I was leaving for work and found it still in my briefcase. I didn't want to take it back to the office so I put it on a chair in the corner of the living room and put a blanket on top of it.

My cousin was my roommate, he knows nothing about guns. He came home and for some reason he found the gun under the blanket and of course started messing with it. There was nothing in the chamber but it had a full magazine. Apparently he held the gun out at some point and pulled the slide back and loaded the gun. And of course he pulled the trigger. 

Sometime later I came home from work, as soon as I came in the house I could smell gun powder, my cousin was standing back in the living room shaking and a little upset. He said, 'I just shot your clock!' He’s never lived it down. Does add ‘character’ to the clock though. 

An alternative story: it was hanging in the balcony of the Ford’s theater!"

So, perhaps we should call this our first GazOK Corral clock? Last year we did sell the old Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 from the Tombstone AZ post office!

The good news is: 1) the angle at which the bullet penetrated the clock was right through column carving where it is almost not visible unless you were looking for it; and 2) it did not break the glass; and 3) its inside door exit doesn't show unless you open the door; and 4) the ricochet point is very small and is conveniently hidden directly behind the pendulum! So, the cousin was a phenomenal shot or extraordinarily lucky. How often does a great provenance story like that come with a gorgeous clock... you tell us!

Physical: The dark-stained alder case, with the much sought after
"North Wind" crown measures 20"w x 60"h x 10"d. It is in excellent condition, having just been thoroughly cleaned and waxed. The finish is actually nicer than the way Gazo shipped them from the factory throughout their years in business.

The 8" diameter etched brass dial is original to the clock and features porcelain "cartouche" numerals. Likewise the pendulum with brass lyre is original to the clock as is all the etched glass. There is a brass label inside the door and it is also hand-signed "Gazo".

Mechanical: The eight-day chiming movement has just been serviced by one of the top technicians on the West Coast and is in excellent running order. It strikes the quarter hours and plays Westminster, Whittington and St. Michael's chime tunes; it can also be turned off.

Comments: This is one of the 2-3 nicest Gazo clocks we've ever had available to offer our clientele. The finish is spectacular, the provenance is nothing but a hoot and it's a gorgeous piece that will draw comments wherever you hang it. Give us a call to start the process – don't just duck and cover!

Gazo “Old Town” ~ Solid Oak

Gazo “Old Town” in Solid Oak ~ Antique Clocks GuyShip From Northern CA

Gazo Old Town - Original Catalutue Picture(Original Catalogue

 

Here's a Gazo Family Clock Factory model we don't see to frequently because the families that have owned them over the years tend not to part when them even at a generational transfer or downsizing. This clock, bearing s/n "OT/225/O" confirms model name, production sequence No. 225, made of "O"ak.

The clock was designed in the manner of many British-styled railroad or, in this case, Government Post Office (GPO) master station clocks (this Gazo clock is a reproduction, not one that was actually used by the British railroads or government).

Physical: The solid oak case, which measures 25"w at the top x 57" h x 6"d is in excellent physical condition and has the original finish. There were different catalogue versions of this model in two different lengths and with differing bottom finials. This clock has the longer of the two box lengths.

The dial, with original paint, measures a whopping 17" in diameter and bears the mark of the current queen upon it (see below). It also bears the mark "GPO" just below the center arbor to which the very British-looking hands are attached. "E.R." stands for the Latin "Elizabeth Regina", the latin for "Elizabeth the Queen". It does not mean "Elizabeth Reigns"!

Mechanical: The eight-day Westminster-chiming clock is was professionally overhauled for the consignor in June 2012 and is in excellent running order.

Comments: Though we have not had too many of this model over the years, they have been strong sellers. So, if you are interested, please call now to make it you own. We saw this same model in a large retail clock shop in the San Diego area recently "marked down" to $2,150. We have a perfect clock that is available now that must make them just blush at their silly pricing!

Note Regarding Gazo Cast Brass Pendulums: Several times each year we are contacted by people who have a Gazo clock that is that is missing its cast-brass pendulum, either from one of the smaller models (San Marcos, Coronado, Palo Alto, Ramona) or from one of the tallcase models with the angel bob. We took the bobs you see below to an antiquities casting professional who made molds of each. If you happen to be one of those people who need assistance with either of these two pendulums, please contact us directly. They are not inexpensive by any means, but are faithful copies of the real thing. Unfortunately, we have no practical way to replace ether the round, etched pendulum bobs, or etched or stamped weights.

Note Regarding Gazo Movement Repair: We have an expert technician who knows Gazo movements thoroughly and can repair most things. Let us know if we can assist.

Note Regarding Gazo Music Box Repair: We occasionally hear from a distressed Gazo owner who has a dead music box (sometimes it's just the batteries). The Reuge Company is out of business and there are no parts. BUT... and here's the exciting part... if the motor in your Gazo/Reuge music box is burned out we can likely replace it. Again, we have an expert Gazo repair department. Let us know if you are no longer hearing beautiful music from your Gazo music box!


Don't forget that we are continually seeking Gazo clocks to list for sale here. If you have one you're considering selling, or know someone who does, please contact us!
