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.
