This is a Rare Vintage Working WORLD WAR II - WWII (maybe earlier) Seth Thomas Clock Company U. A fellow ebayer advised me that this example is a Radio Room Clock. 7 1/2 in Diameter - face approx. The Case is constructed of Black Bakelite and has a hinged bezel - porthole style design.
The clock face appears to be a Silverish / Brass OR Nickel Metal?? - - Large Sweep second Hand. Has Red Zone markings between the 9 & 10 numerals and at the 3 & 4 position on the face. Key Wound Clock - includes the winding Key (may not be original).I really cannot tell you if it has an 8 day movement. My 18 hour testing indicates that it was on the mark. I did not try to make any adjustments with the FAST / SLOW feature.
This is offered in used condition. There is a adhesive smudge on the outside of glass at the "12" position. I forgot to remove before photos taken - windex will do the job. There is no damage to the face it is on the glass only and can be cleaned.
