I repaired this Seth Thomas tambour mantel clock with Westminster chime. The label on the bottom calls it “No. 117 W Chime”. The dark mahogany case is 20 1/8 inches wide and 9 3/8 inches tall. The silver-plated brass dial has black printed numerals, minute track and lettering. The 8-day No. 124 movement has the date code 38-3 (March 1938) stamped at the upper left of the front plate.
Repair job 7731. These No. 124 movements sure run well after repair, but they take a lot of work. I polished the pivots and installed 27 bushings! The lead pendulum bob weighs 3.2 ounces and is 1 5/8 inches diameter.
