Seth Thomas “Cathay 3” Electric Alarm Clock

April 23, 2012 | By | Reply More

The owners of this clock received it as a wedding gift in 1955, and were dismayed when the clock stopped working during a thunderstorm. It needed cleaning, pivot polishing and two bushings. The coil smelled burnt, and I was lucky to find a good used replacement. The fiber gear had several damaged teeth, so I replaced that as well.

The clock has a walnut case and is 5 1/8 inch tall, and 5 5/8 inches wide at the feet.

Repair job 5680.
