Waterbury Regulator No. 67, is listed on page 77 in their catalog #154 for 1908-09. Generally a run like this went for 10 years so my clock would fit somewhere in that time period and be 100+ years in age.

The catalog listing reads:
"Regulator No. 67. Oak, Walnut or Mahogany. Eight day, weight time, Oak or Walnut $24.00 Mahogany $27.00. Dead-beat escapement, Retaining power. Solid polished movement frames, 12 inch dial. Height 50 inches, width 22 inches."

My understanding is that railway offices would have these clocks as they were so reliable that workers and railway men would set their watches by them. This clock is still accurate to this day.

My Uncle had an Antique shop in Queenston, Ontario, Canada and acquired this clock in the early 1970s. My mother purchased it from him and I now have it.
