Seth Thomas Legacy – 2E Electric Westminster Chime Clock

January 9, 2016 | By | 3 Replies More

Here’s a beautiful Seth Thomas electric mantel clock I repaired about a year ago. It is a Legacy – 2E with Westminster chime. It has a mahogany case that is 14 1/2 inches tall and 10 3/4 inches wide. The minute hand is 2 7/8 inches long and the dial’s minute track is 5 3/4 inches outside diameter.

Repair job 6452. This clock has a M4 General Time motor. The motor winds up the mainsprings that run the chime and striking. I replaced 2 gears that were worn out (T4 and T5), polished the pivots, installed 21 bushings and installed a new power cord.

The date code on the label is 5103 (March 1951). The date code on the movement is 5013 (the 13th lunar month of 1950?). The presentation plaque on the from of the clock says Xmas 1951.

    I usually have to go to eBay or local auctions to find a old lcock to buy for parts.

    Mr Stoddard, I also have a Legacy-2E model 703-000 w/date code 5103 that my wife inherited from her aunt. She dearly loves this clock and wants running again. Where do you get parts for this clock? I know for sure the motor needs replacing, and the face has been marred by a previous repair shop and needs replacing also.

    I have the Seth Thomas electric clock identical to the one you repaired. Date code 5007. I was wondering if I could get an estimate on the value of this beautiful piece
