Waterbury “Sussex” One-Day Shelf Clock, Inlaid Walnut Case

Here is a Waterbury “Sussex” one day walnut shelf clock with nice original painted dial. The inlaid caseĀ  is 17 5/8 inches tall without the top trim piece. The minute track of the dial is 4 7/8 inches diameter. The hour hand is original, except for the tip. The minute hand is a replacement.

The two original labels with name “Sussex” and with instructions, are on the back.

The movement was patented Sept. 22, 1874.

  1. “One Day At a Time” – My oh my that’s a lot of windings since 1874. Oh the patent date. How old is the clock then? It takes some dedication to keep a clock like this running. Well done for preserving it
