Here's another beautiful Seth Thomas Adamantine Mantel Clock I repaired. This has a "tortoise shell" color I hadn't seen before!

This Seth Thomas Westminster chime mantel clock has a No. 124 movement. The cover on the back of the clock says "KENBURY-1W MODEL No. E- 705-003".

The case is mahogany with a lighter wood inlay band across the bottom. The 1951 Seth Thomas catalog shows this clock. Height 8 3/8 inches, width 15 3/8 inches, minute hand length 2 3/8 inches.
The No. 124 movement in this clock has the date code 5011 (November 1950) and the bottom of the case has the date code 5102 (February 1951).

Repair job 6682. This clock needed a lot of work. When I received it, the time and chime mainsprings had been swapped. The two spacers for the mainspring barrel plate were missing. several screws were missing. The teeth on the time mainwheel were damaged. I polished the pivots and installed 34 bushings! The sleeve that supports the chime shutoff lever was missing.

The No. 124 movement is an excellent runner, but will need to be overhauled when it stops working after years of use.

Schatz made 3 sizes of 400 day clock: Standard, Miniature and Midget. The Standard 400 day says "49" on the back inside a circle, the miniature says "53", and the midget says "JUM/7". Can anyone tell me what "JUM/7" means?

The midget 400 day clock is slightly shorter than the miniature. I recently repaired a midget dated 9 62 (September 1962), and its height without the dome is 5 9/16 inches.

The midget movement has a pin-pallet escapement instead of a Graham deadbeat.

Repair job 6631. I polished the pivots, smoothed some damaged teeth on the mainspring barrel, and replaced the suspension spring. I used a 0.0022 inch thick Horolovar suspension spring (a previous clock of the same model I repaired (see Schatz Midget 400 Day Clock Made in 1968). needed a 0.0023 inch thick spring (I'm not sure if the difference was in the suspension springs or the pendulum).

Story
Introduction

My name is Bill Stoddard, and I like to repair clocks, document the history of Westclox and their clocks and watches, design web sites, and program in PHP. Professionally, I operate Bill’s Clockworks, where I repair American antique clocks and 400 day anniversary clocks; and sell new wall, mantle, chime, cuckoo and other types of clocks, and a few antique clocks.

My other joys include being with my family, bicycle riding, singing in church choir, and vintage hi-fi and LP records.
