The Seth Thomas model #75 Westminster ca. 1920 is the largest dimensionally of all of his tambour clocks. It also holds the big 5 pound ST #113 (Westminster) movement, which is one of the finest the company ever produced. And it was time consuming and expensive to produce. The best explanation I ever heard for the discontinuation of the #113 movement in the early 20's was the cost and time which resulted in lack of profit for the company. Okay, we've heard that tune before... A very good #124 Westminster Chime movement, like a good chevy car was produced for less cost, at a faster rate, and it was also 'affordable' for John Q, Public. The smaller #124 sounds great, but you can't compare it to the melodious sound of the #113 movement. This was a very decent Craigslist purchase about 10 years ago. Some former owner attempted to clean the dial with who knows what and destroyed several areas of the silver finish. I sent the dial to the Dial House in Georgia for restoration, a well spent $75. My clock guy replaced a chime spring. The only distress to the mahogany case are 2 tiny dimples on the left side of the dial. The dimensions are 22 1/4" length x 10" height x 7" depth and a weight of 11 1/2 pounds!

    Beautiful Example. Some of the smaller Tambours still have Mayland Chime Rods, but I don't believe they are as long as the assemblies used in these larger cases. We really love the distinctive, deep-toned hour strike rod in contrast to the four Westminsters. Just lovely. Thanks for sharing!
