Sessions Store Regulator Clock in Oak Case

Here is a Sessions wall clock in an oak case. Collectors often refer to this style of clock as a “Store Regulator”. This example strikes the hour and half-hour, and has a red calendar hand that indicates the day of the month.

Setting the Calendar

The calendar hand advances automatically each night, from around 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. To set the calendar, push the long end of the red hand forward to the correct day. Move the hand only during the hours of 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., ( when the calendar hand is not engaged by its drive mechanism).

After a month of less than 31 days, set the calendar hand ahead to the correct day. Do this from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., ( when the calendar hand is not engaged by its drive mechanism).

Repair Work

Repair job 6357. I polished the pivots, installed 13 bushings, smoothed the clicks, installed new click rivets and replaced the round brass clicksprings with round steel clicksprings.

  1. I’ve seen several with red calendar numerals, but the black seems to be much more common.

  2. I have a regulator store box type clock with the regulator inside a rectangle shaped gold outline and each day of the calender around the dial is numbered in red numbers not black. I have not seen one like this yet.
