New Haven Oak Kitchen Clock

This New Haven “kitchen” or shelf clock, was made around the 1880s or 1890s. It originally had an alarm, which has been removed. The dial has a large center opening for the alarm set disc.

The oak case is 22 1/8 inches tall and 14 inches wide. The painted dial has a 5 inch minute track, and the minute hand is 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

Repair job 6029. Pivots polished, 14 bushings, reduce the time winding square slightly to fit the same key as the strike winding square.

  1. I recently purchased one of these (repair job 6029). It was missing the trip wire for the alarm which I manufactured and installed. Is there something missing that should stop the alarm bell from winding all the down or is that simply how it works?
    I was able to get it running and it has been eight days since I sat it. It has only gained about 00:30-00:45 seconds.
