Antique Seth Thomas "Regulator No. 3" Model Clock

Previous Model - Next Model
Seth Thomas Regulator No. 3

Catalog Description:

B&O Railroad clock. Stamped on the door "B&O 165". Case is Seth Thomas Clock Co. "Regulator No.3"., ca 1886. The old oak case is generally very good. A little veneer patched and some ragged spots, all on the inner part of the round bezel nearest the glass. 42 inch case has original parts, finials, nickel bob and wood stick, brass weight and pulley, and door lock. The case has been refinished but is all original and very nice otherwise. I had some doubts about the backboard being original because it was too nice to be 100 years old, but everything else is so extra nice, down to the old finials, that I have concluded that it probably hung high on a wall in a railroad station and was not moved around like most old wall clocks.The movement is 8 day, time only, weight driven, running. Movement is signed by Seth Thomas and marked "3". It has polished steel cut pinions, Graham dead beat escapement, and maintaining power. This movement is identical to the one pictured on page 113 of Ly-Seth Thomas. There is original paint on the 14 inch zinc dial, only minor flaking. Sure isn't due for a repaint.
