This one is from later 1919 to early 1920 as they are mostly seen with a 1920 patent also listed on them, whereas this one has only the 1919 patent and "Other Patents Pending" on it.
Missing actual stamp.
I've gotten it to run quite accurately. I last adjusted time/speed 5 days ago. Currently, it is only a minute off (running fast, partially corrected by how it stops with every wind).
An 'accurate' mechanical non-quartz clock is one that is off by a minute or less every day. To correct the offness, most came with a feature that let you adjust their speed. I will adjust it a few more times and settle with what comes of it.
I like old clocks because they were put together by hand. Smaller ones are even cooler to me, because they were so difficult to make.
A great little clock even as it sits. I will continue to use it. To be honest, it runs more accurately than any of my other antique clocks.
