I have a Seth Thomas 24 hour navy clock in a bakelite case that needs a minute and second hand. The part inside the clock that rotates back and forth is loose as well. Can you tell me if these parts are available so I can return this clock back to normal operation.

Repairing the Seth Thomas Navy 8 day clocks
by: ARAllen

I also own the same clock and have had difficulty finding replacement parts. I have been reading in many forumns and there are hundreds of people who have these clocks which just cannot be repaired because of a lack of parts. It is easy to at least buy similar replacement hands, just as long as the clock movement works correctly. I have several resources for original parts - the escape is one of the toughest to find. Too bad there isn't a site for just Seth Thomas parts- now with the internet it could be so easy...all you need is dedicated time. You can prbable get good guidance from a clock shop that has been in business for at least 20 years. I live in Washington, DC Metro area so I have many resources. If you do decide to sell the clock if it doesn't run,let me know.
Good luck, and hope all works when you get new hands.

Best Regards,

I found a clock repair shop on a grandfather clocks site and visited them. As far as I can see they have hands for all kinds of clocks including Seth Thomas. Check out at

Would you consider selling your clock?
