2 Regulator, 8 Day Time Only Wall Clock Oak Case, Beautiful & Running. OAK CASE, "REGULATOR NUMBER 2" MODEL. 8 DAY MOVEMENT, TIME ONLY, RUNNING. THIS is a guaranteed genuine antique Seth Thomas wall clock, their famous Regulator Number 2.
It has a properly marked Seth Thomas #77A eight day time only movement. The finish is superb, and seems to be original--I see no evidence of it having been refinished. The zinc dial shows wear, with minor losses and a good bit of fading. It looks as if someone has strengthened the numerals freehand, but did a pretty good job. When I opened it up, the movement was clean but somewhat dry, so I merely oiled it and restrung the weight (when I got it, it was suspended by a very old cotton cord, which I replaced with brass cable).It is currently running correctly. It measures about 35 X 16 X 6 inches. Based on the movement used and the style of the base, my guess is that it dates to the late 1920s or'30s, right about the time of the transition from the 77A movement with cut pinions to the 77B with lantern pinions. Of course, some of you know more about the different styles of the #2 regulator than do I. Although running, I sell all mechanical and electrical devices in technically "AS-IS" condition.
