D-Day Clock

by Jack
(Noxon, MT)




I have a Seth Thomas Course Clock, Mark 2, Model 1, Serial # 21269.
I was told they where used to bring GI`s to Europe for D -Day and was probably still in use on D-Day. All parts are present and it still runs good.
? Date of Mfg.
? When was it used.
? Why were most of them destroyed.( A guy at Seth Thomas said they were all destroyed after D-Day because of the spindle and pins that set up course changes for a flottilla.)
? Why does Seth Thomas have very little info on clock, they made it.
What is it worth?

Two faced clock

by Janet
(Wisconsin)

This clock was handed down to me from my grandfather, who rasied potatoes in Idaho--he passed away in 1969--
The clock was supposely used outside a cold storage unit--

It has two clocks, one above the other--both key wound--the top one kept time, all the time--the bottom one, also kept time but was hooked to a battery from a post on the top of the clock cabinet. If the power went off in the cold storage unit, the bottom clock would stop--so the workers , when they came in would know how long the potatoes had gone without cooling.

The cabinet is made of wood (? kind?). The face says --
Gamewell Co. New York

The insides are all brass works--
with Seth Thomas--made in US of America--stamped on the brass

I have no mre information that this-- If somebody knows anything--it would be great Thank you

Seth Thomas Tambour 8-Day Clock

Seth Thomas Westminster Chime Clock

Seth Thomas Westminster Chime Clock

I have a Seth Thomas Clock and this is what I know about it so far:

*Mantel/shelf clock
*Tambour
*Westminster Chimes
*8-day movement
*It has three wind up holes in the front that all wind with the same key
*inside the door it has "Medbury 6W"
*also has the numbers 5910 stamped inside the door .

I have had the clock for about a month. It was given to me by my mother who has no idea of its history. I need to find out an approximate value of this clock and when it was manufactured.

The clock so far is in working condition, chimes as it should on the hour and every 15 minutes, is not running too slow or fast and is staying perfectly on time with other clocks.

Also, one last question. If I sell and need to ship this clock , what is the best way to safely package this clock to avoid damages to any part of it or the interior working parts? Would appreciate any help, corrections or additional information that anyone may have. Thanks.

Antique Seth Thomas Clock

Seth Thomas

Seth Thomas "OGEE" Clock

Label says it was made in Thomaston, Connecticut. Label also says it was printed by the American Printing Company.

My research shows that those two items identify it as being made after 1865?? I can find no date on it. It has two large weights. I have inherited it from my mother who just died at the age of 92.

I am attaching a picture. I can share more pictures as needed. Can anyone tell me more about it and its possible value?

On the face of the clock it has Royal Seth by Seth Thomas. When the back of the clock is opened it has two paper stickers.

That sticker also has a black stamp of 6406 on it with E899-327 Issue 1. The second sticker says Royal Seth-B, Model E539-001, Seth Thomas Division of Genreal Time Corp., Thomaston, Conn.

Well, its a ship's wheel bell clock. The wheel is of wood. It is not a flush mount, the brass front screws off for clock to be set. It is made of brass and it has 1 through 12 and 13 through 24 around the dial.

It has Seth Thomas written under the time hands and "Germany Movt" at the bottom. One key hole on the dial on the left as well as one on the right.

It has (STR - SIL between 10 and 11 o'clock)and )F - S at 1 o'clock). Writing on the inside of the clock is "PATD U.S.A. 2974473 FOREIGN PATENTS PENDING. MADE IN GERMANY FOR SETH THOMAS CLOCKS THOMASTON, CONN. U.S.A. SEVEN (7) JEWELS A207- 000 CC 6713".

Seth Thomas Clock

Seth Thomas Mantel Clock

Seth Thomas Mantel Clock

Seth Thomas Clock

This clock was my great, great grandmothers. It is dark green and black, with a tiny bit of cream color to it. It almost has a faux marble look to it, color-wise.

On both sides it has a lion head holding a ring in its mouth. Kind of reminds me of a door-knocker. The feet are brass (maybe? no clue) same as the lion heads.

It has one large key to it that has no writing. One large one that is a different color but it says germany on it-probably for a different clock. And one very tiny key that has switzerland on it. It was so tiny though that we had to get a magnifying glass to read it.

I'm curious as to what year it was made.
It is a Seth Thomas clock. It says Thomaston, Conn USA on it. I started reading about Seth Thomas clocks and the information I got back said it wasn't Thomaston, Conn until 1865. So I'm guessing that it has to be from at least there on forward.

The picture I took is slightly blurry because I had to take it with my phone.

Please comment here with any information or knowledge you might know about this clock. It would be greatly appreciated!

Antique Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock

Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock

Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantle Clock

I found this clock in my Mother's basement after she passed. I have hung on to it because it looked old. Now that we are moving and going through all of our belongings I have developed an interest in finding out more about this clock.

It is a Seth Thomas clock. I believe it is an Adamantine Mantle clock from what I have seen on E-Bay and the internet. It is faux marble finish in blonde. It has the label on the inside back cover. I have found several similar to mine on E-Bay but none exactly.

I would like to know how old it is and if there is any value to it. There is a marking on the bottom of the clock that I cannot fully read. It looks like some of it is missing.

Any help would be appreciated. I can provide more pictures if needed since it appears I can only post one here.

by Sandra B.

My father is 79 years old he inherited this mantle chime clock. Now it was given to me.

It is a Seth Thomas clock. If my eyes are reading it right, it is model #e702004. It is a wooden mantle clock with a door on the back. The glass face opens up,to set the time. The hour hand has a heart like shape on the end.

I would like to find out the date it was made and what it would be worth. I am not sure if it was his mothers or grandmothers. Any information that someone could give me would be deeply apreciated.
Thank You,

Granpa's Seth Thomas Mantel Clock

by Tracy Geiser
(Ashtabula, OH)

My Husband's Grandfather found this clock in a used/usable type store shortly after WWII. He and his then new bride needed a clock, and this one looked nice,and serviceable.

It sat on the buffet doing it's best to remind people of the time until 2006. Grandma decided she wanted to watch her descendants enjoy their inheritance. Besides, if I had the Big table and the matching Buffet, I could host family holiday dinners, instead of her. The clock came with the Buffet. It still sits right were it always has. I don't keep it wound. It no longer keeps accurate time.

I would love to know how old the clock really is. It appears to be walnut. It has never been refinished. There isn't any decoration on it. Just the round face with not overly ornate numbers. It has two winding holes. (We still have the original key.)

It starts with low swoops over the face, then back down very elegantly.

Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Wilbur and Tracy Geiser

Seth Thomas Ships Clock

Seth Thomas Ships Clock

Seth Thomas Ships Clock

This is a Seth Thomas Ships Bell Clock and the hours are in roman numerals. The clock is in a brass case with a strike bar on the left side by the 9:00 hr.

There is also a bar above the 12:00 hr that has an S on the left and a F on the right. There is also a second hand below the 12:00 hr mark, it has double winding and I actually know very little about it and would like to know more.

I had the clock oiled and serviced about 5 years ago with a reputable clock repairman and I also have the key. The clock is in excellent working condition.

I believe it is a three day clock but not sure. It was my father's who was a collector of Seth Thomas Clocks. If anyone can give me more information as far as the date or where I could go to list this clock, it would be greatly appreciated.

I was told by the antique road show that the clock they thought was from around 1851, but they were guessing as well. I would like to sell the clock to someone who will appreciate and care for the clock but I do not know where to start.
Thanks
