Your New England Clock
by: Bill

Hi Nick,

The reason your clock may seem familiar to you may be because it is made in the style of the antique "store regulators" that can be seen in many old movies or pictures depicting the late 1800's or early 1900's.

This type of clock hung in many public buildings, such as offices, train stations, government buildings, etc.

The New England Clock Company did mass produce their clocks though and it is possible that you have seen one before.

The value of these clocks at auction is between $150 to $500. You can read about this company here.

I knew i seen it before..

I have one just like it that belonged to my mother who passed away a few months ago (says 1974 on the dial face). Funny thing is: is always ran beautifully in here home, but will not in mine.

Nice clock!

I just purrchased this clock at a fundraising auction and have noo idea how to set the date. Any help would be welcome.

Figured it out!

My clock is the same as the one pictured with different hands. It also has NE266G on the back but no ink stamp. Does anyone have a set of instructions? Mine is a West German movement by Franz Hermle, stamped 79 above the Franz Hermle. I think that is the date of manufacture of the movment.

I just bought a NE Clock exactly like your at a clock repair shop in Texas. I was told it was made in the 1980's. A very nice clock for a nice price - I paid $275.
