      I was just given this clock by a friend who said her family got it long ago from a subway in NY. That's ALL she or I know about it. Any help?

      Hello Anthony. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. It looks like your friend has given you a Seth Thomas "ArcadeNo. 1" from about circa 1928. In original condition and in good working order they can be very collectible and valuable. Do an internet search on the Model Name and you'll find many more examples. Hope that solves your mystery. If so, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your listing. If you have morme questions please feel free to ask away!

      That's so awesome Bruce. Thanks so much. I've done a search using that model number but only similar clocks with "regular-number faced" come up instead of one with Roman numerals like mine. Is this common?
    4. Bruce99 Bruce99, 6 years ago
      That's an insignificant option. One often finds a variety of dial options on a model. Indeed, American Clock Manufacturers often offered a wide range of dial "upgrades" or just slight variations to their markets. It looks like your clock's case may have been refinished.

      Indeed. Ok then..I'll mark this "Mystery Solved" and do some research as to where exactly it originated from. Thanks so much again.

      One last didn't come with a wind-up key. Would you happen to know the key size for this particular model?
    7. Bruce99 Bruce99, 6 years ago
      No, I don't but this reference might help:
      You might also want to consider having the clock properly serviced if you intend to run it. These types of clock movements require periodic maintenance and lubrication. Good luck with it and thanks for sharing with us.

      Anthony, I have a possible correction for you...this may be a model called the "Gallery" and not the "Arcade" as I had thought before.
      See these links:
      These examples show the Roman Numeral Dial that your clock has.
      If you take it in for professional service perhaps he or she can provide a definite answer as to which model it is. Hope that has helped some more. Regards
