  4. I forgot to mention that it does chime on the hour and half hour. The chime coil is large.
  5. The clock has a opening cut out of the bottom near the front of the clock that is about 4" which makes me think that it was mounted on something that fit in that slot (you can barely see it in the for...

  13. pw-collector, good luck Dave.
  14. Is it the 2 inch or the 5, I have a copper one, and an Ivory one both with boxes and tags. I also have a blue 2 inch one without the box.
  15. Great clock/watch, I have been on the lookout for one of these.
  16. The Arlington is my favorite also. jscotto363.
  17. More than likely the pendulum needs to be adjusted. It is suspended through a kruch that causes the the escapement to advance when the pudendum swings back and forth. https://www.youtube.com/watch...

  30. Looks like raw topaz.
  31. I have one like these that I call Harvey, he is dapper standing by a garden gate. Great find.
