THE COMPLETE DIAL ASSEMBLY IS EXACTLY AS ONE WOULD WANT – NEAR PERFECT!!! NOTE THE TWO SUB-DIALS AT THE TOP – THE LEFT ONE IS FOR REGULATING THE TIME SLOW-FAST AND THE RIGHT SUB-DIAL SILENCES THE ¼ HOUR CHIMES IF DESIRED, BUT NOT THE HOUR STRIKE. THE WINDING HOLE NEAR THE “8” IS FOR THE HOUR COUNT CHIME GRAR TRAIN; THE ONE NEAR THE “6” IS FOR THE TIME GEAR TRAIN, AND THE WINDING HOLE NEAR THE “4” IS FOR THE ¼ HOUR WESTMINSTER CHIME GEAR TRAIN. THE THREE MAINSPRING WIND HOLES COMBINED WITH THE TWO-SUB DIALS PROVIDE COMPLETE CONTROL OF ALL CLOCK FUNCTIONS. THE FRONT DOOR IS TIGHT, DOES NOT SAG, AND CLOSES PROPERLY WITH A CLEAN SNAP. THE SILVERED DIAL TRIM SASH IS PROPERLY ATTACHED ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR, BEHIND THE ORIGINAL HEAVY DOOR GLASS. THE CHIME 70 CABINET WAS ONE OF SETH THOMAS’ RARE FINEST GRADE PRODUCTS, WITH THE WESTMINSTER CHIME SEQUENCE ON HEAVY RESONANT MAYLAND CHIME RODS, MARKETED TO THOSE WHO DESIRED THE LILTING AND STATELY SOUND, STYLE, AND PRESENTATION WHEN PLACED ON THE MANTLE PIECE OR TABLE TOP IN THEIR HOMES. EACH QUARTER HOUR WESTMINSTER SEQUENCE IS SOUNDED ON THE HEAVY AND RESONANT MAYLAND BRONZE-NICKEL ALLOY CHIME RODS, FOLLOWED BY THE HOUR COUNT ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE FIFTH MAYLAND ROD. THE STATELY TEMPO SO CHARACTERISTIC OF A GRAND WESTMINSTER OF THE TWENTIES IS IN FULL PRESENCE, AS ARE THE LILTING RESONANT NOTES WITH SUCH TIMBRE AND DECAY AFTER EACH STRIKE. BY ALL MEANS LISTEN TO THE CHIME CLOCK NUMBER 70 PERFORM VIA THE ATTACHED E COMMERCE PLAYER SOUND FILES! THIS IS A LARGE FULL SIZE CATHEDRAL CABINET CLOCK SUITABLE FOR MANTLE, TABLE, SHELF OR WALL BRACKET DISPLAY - IDEAL FOR A SPECIAL GIFT, YOUR PERSONAL USE, OR AS AN ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION. MEASUREMENTS ARE 11 ½” W X 15” H X 8” D. RESTORATION AND TECHNICAL DETAILS PLEASE OBSERVE THAT NEARLY HALF OF MY LISTING PORTFOLIO CONTAINS INFORMATION ABOUT THE MECHANICAL ASPECTS AND MOVEMENT RESTORATION OF THE CLOCK. YOU DESERVE, AND SHOULD EXPECT, A RESTORED ANTIQUE SETH OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND RELIABILITY. I STRIVE TO EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS RATHER THAN SIMPLY SELL YOU AN ANTIQUE CLOCK. SETH THOMAS’ FINEST AND HEAVIEST WESTMINSTER MOVEMENT, THE EIGHT DAY #113A, HAS BEEN COMPLETELY SERVICED, INCLUDING: FULL DISASSEMBLY, INSPECTION, CLEANING, REBUSHING AT KEY BEARING WEAR POINTS, REASSEMBLY, LUBRICATION, AND BENCH TESTING FOR FOUR WEEKS. THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN THE #113A MOVEMENT ARE INCLUDED IN THE INSPECTION, ALONG WITH CORRECTIONS IF NECESSARY: · BUSHING AND PIVOT WEAR OR ROUGHNESS · ANY BENT PIVOTS OR OTHER PIVOT CONDITIONS · CONDITION OF ARBORS, GEARS, PINIONS · CONDITION OF THE CHIME HAMMERS AND HAMMER ASSEMBLY · CONDITION OF THE CHIME TRAIN AND HOUR STRIKE TRAIN GOVERNORS TO INSURE THAT PROPER GEAR SPEED IS MAINTAINED · CONDITION OF THE LEATHER TIPS ON THE CHIME HAMMERS TO INSURE APPROPRIATE TONE, TIMBRE AND DECAY OF THE NOTE WHEN EACH CHIME IS STRUCK · NUMEROUS ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT ARE COMPONENTS OF PROPER SERVICING ALL THREE MAINSPRINGS THAT SUPPLY ENERGY TO THE TIME, CHIME AND HOUR STRIKE TRAINS HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH NEW HIGHEST GRADE MAINSPRINGS. PLEASE NOTE: WEAK MAINSPRINGS AND THE NEED FOR PROPER SERVICING ARE THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF POOR AND UNRELIABLE PERFORMANCE FROM ANTIQUE CLOCKS WITH AN UNKNOWN SERVICE AND CONDITION RECORD!!! NOTE THAT THE SETH #113A MOVEMENT WEIGHS A FULL 5 1/4 POUNDS, COMPARED WITH THE WEIGHT OF ITS SMALLER BROTHER, THE #124 AT 2 3/8 POUNDS – THE #113A TRULY IS THE HIGHEST GRADE WESTMINSTER MOVEMENT PRODUCED BY SETH THOMAS, AND BETTER THAN ANY OTHER PRODUCED. FINAL TESTING INFORMATION ELECTRONIC TESTS WERE CONDUCTED TO MINIMIZE THE PENDULUM BEAT ERROR, WITH AN OBJECTIVE OF APPROACHING ZERO. THIS RESTORED #113 MOVEMENT MET AND HELD ZERO BEAT ERROR, INDICATING A VERY HEALTHY MOVEMENT. ADDITIONAL TESTS WERE MADE TO INSURE THAT THE PENDULUM BEAT RATE ADJUSTMENT WILL BE CORRECT, WITH THE OBJECTIVE BEING 9,894 BEATS PER HOUR, WHICH THE RESTORED #113A ATTAINED AND HELD. THIS ADJUSTMENT IS IMPORTANT TO ASSURE TIME REGULATION STABILITY, AS WELL AS THE ABILITY TO ADJUST THE MOVEMENT LATER FOR VARYING ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS THAT AFFECT MECHANICAL CLOCKS. THE PENDULUM BEAT WIDTH OF 4 1/8 IN IS FANTASTIC FOR A GRAHAM DEADBEAT ESCAPEMENT ACTION MOVEMENT, AND REPRESENTS THE TYPICAL RESULTS I ACHIEVE IN THE MOVEMENT RESTORATION PROCESS. I TREAT EACH RESTORATION AS IF THE COMPLETED CLOCK WILL RESIDE IN MY PERSONAL COLLECTION. IT BEARS MENTIONING THAT A “COMPETE SERVICE AND RESTORE” JOB ON A #113A MOVEMENT, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, WHEN DONE BY A COMPETENT PROFESSIONAL IS IN THE $400 RANGE. THAT IS ANOTHER REASON FOR THE DISCRIMINATING EBAY ANTIQUE BUYER TO CHOOSE WISELY WHEN PURCHASING!! THIS IS A LARGE FULL SIZE CATHEDRAL CABINET CLOCK SUITABLE FOR MANTLE, TABLE, SHELF OR WALL BRACKET DISPLAY - IDEAL FOR A SPECIAL GIFT, YOUR PERSONAL USE, OR AS AN ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION. MEASUREMENTS ARE 11 ½” W X 15” H X 8” D. ENJOY REVIEWING THE CHIME CLOCK NUMBER 70 – IF YOU NEED OR DESIRE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE BE IN TOUCH WITH ME, STEVE.
