Schatz 400 Day Clock, Roman Numeral Dial with No Name, Ivory Painted

Here’s another Schatz 400 day clock with Roman numeral dial. This one has an ivory painted case. The dial doesn’t have the Schatz name, so the clock was made around 1949. (There is no date on the movement either, as Schatz started putting the date code on their 400 day clock movement in 1952.) See […]

Seth Thomas Dark Mahogany Tambour Mantel Clock, ca. 1920

This Seth Thomas tambour mantel clock is very plain, yet is a great example of an old clock of classic design that will be reliable for many years. It has the No. 89 movement, very reliable and efficient, and one of their best movements, in my opinion. The clock is 17 inches wide, 9 1/8 […]

The movements in these Ingraham mantel clocks run very efficiently thanks to their deadbeat escapement. The case is 13 1/16 inches tall and 8 5/8 inches wide. The dial’s minute track is 4 3/8 inch in diameter, […]

This “Vienna” regulator by Junghans has an oak case 40 1/2 inches tall and 13 1/2 inches wide. The enamel dial is marked “W. Bauer, Wein” on the center portion (Wein means Vienna). This must be the seller (or was added later) as the movement was made in Germany. The dial’s minute track is 6 […]
