This is one of the great clocks that I purchased in a huge lot. This is an older Waterbury 8 day mantel clock. This is made of wood in great shape and had all original pendulum and key and it still works like a charm , I ve recently gave to my mother in law. Does anyone know when it was made or the model type? I really love the look but can't seem to find much on it.

    I can not find your specific model in my references but Waterbury had a line of clocks called their "Onyx No. XXX". "Onyx No. 109" for example. They were from the early 1890's. It looks like you may have one of those models. Sorry I couldn't be more specific. Regards

    I just found out this is a Waterbury Duarte 8 day clock. From the early 1900's a cool piece all original.

    Okay...that's some really good simulated Marbleized Wood! I thought it was Onyx and was looking in the wrong area. The photos completely fooled me. It looks like they made the "Duarte" in Mahogany Color, Enameled Green Marbleized Wood (Perhaps the finish of your clock has faded a little over the years) and White Enamel. Circa 1906 through 1917 according to Tran Duy Ly. He appraised them at $325 in 2001 but it looks like they are really undervalued in today's market. A couple have sold recently on eBay for about an average of $72. Another online auctioneer (Tom Harris) sold one in October of 2010 finished in white enamel for $30 but it needed to be serviced: http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/7903584. I'm surprised that they are not selling for more. I certainly would snap one up for 30 bucks! They are beautiful clocks. Thanks for the info. Regards

    I'm thinking this might be the original color but Im not sure. I saw one very similar that sold for 74.00 recently but it wasnt in working order. This is running like a bull, but I'm not gonna sell it..... my mother in law loves it.

    Could be the original finish. Tran Duy Ly doesn't know or list everything! It definitely has an illusion of semi-translucent mineral depth to it and some of the Waterbury Onyx models were styled in a similar manner as your clock's case but as I look at the enlarged photos I can see a few small areas where the enamel has flaked off or started to crack. A good quality furniture paste wax every year or two goes a long way towards conserving the finish. I don't blame you for not selling it...I wouldn't want my mother-in-law mad at me either! :) Just kidding...I wouldn't sell it in any case. Are you going to post any more of the clocks you purchased in that lot? Hope so!

    Beautiful piece. Waterbury was always under-rated about thier timepieces
