April 18, 2012 | By | 2 Replies More

This wooden case time only wall clock is labeled “Plymouth” on the dial but was made by Seth Thomas. The time-only pendulum movement appears to use some parts from their no. 124 chiming clock movement. The case is 14 5/8 inches tall and 9 5/8 inches wide. The minute hand is 2 3/8 inches long, and the minute track on the dial is 3 3/4 inches diameter.

The pendulum weighs 3.2 ounces, and is 6 1/2 inches long overall. The pendulum cylinder (bob) is brass, 1 15/16 inches long and 5/8 inches diameter.

    You’re correct that the town “Plymouth Hollow” was changed to “Thomaston” in 1865. But starting around the 1930’s, Seth Thomas had a line of clocks named “Plymouth”. They used the same movements as clocks marked “Seth Thomas”.

    Bill, I thought “Plymouth” was pre 1865. Didn’t they change the name of the town to Thomastown about then? Just curious. Jim
