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 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.
