I recently repaired this pretty clock. The back of the case is labeled:
8-Day Hour and Half Hour
Cathedral Bell Strike
Manufactured Expressly For
The American Wringer Co
No 99 Chambers Street
No. D-. 363
The number 363 is hand written.
The movement is Ansonia’s efficient running 8 day time and strike with the original thin mainsprings.
Time Mainspring: 3/4 x 0.0157 inch loop end
Strike Mainspring: 3/4 x 0.0153 inch loop end
I polished the pivots, installed 11 bushings, replaced the click rivets (so the winding mechanism will be reliable), installed new wires in one pinion, and made and installed new return springs on the hammer and count lever.
Repair job 5434.
