THE MAHOGANY FINISH HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY CONDITIONED AND RESTORED WITH MY OWN SPECIAL PROCESS OF AMALGAMATION BY HAND RUBBING SUCCESSIVE APPLICATIONS OF DILUTE AMBER SHELLAC ON TO THE EXISTING FINISH.

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 #113, 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 #113 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. I USE FINEST QUALITY MAINSPRINGS, NOT INEXPENSIVE REPLACEMENTS!! 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!!! IMPORTANT NOTICE: I MENTIONED ABOVE THAT ALL 3 MAINSPRINGS WERE REPLACED (TIME, CHIME, HOUR STRIKE) WITH FINEST QUALITY MAINSPRINGS. THIS STEP IN THE RESTORATION OF A 113 SERIES MOVEMENT IS CRITICAL, BECAUSE THE OLD FATIGUED MAINSPRINGS WILL NOT YIELD THE LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE DESIRED IN TERMS OF CHIME TEMPO, HOUR STRIKE TEMPO, TIME ACCURACY AND RELIABILITY. THESE FINEST QUALITY MAINSPRINGS ARE EXPENSIVE, AND INCLUDED IN MY RESTORATION. WHENEVER YOU PURCHASE A SETH THOMAS WESTMINSTER WITH 113 SERIES MOVEMENT, BE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT THE MAINSPRINGS HAVE BEEN REPLACED, AND NOT WITH INFERIOR MANUFACTURED ONES BUT HIGHEST GRADE ONES. IMPORTANT: NOTICE SUPERSIZE PHOTO 11: THE LEFT INSET ILLUSTRATES THAT AN ELECTRONIC TEST IS UNDERWAY 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. THE RIGHT INSET SHOWS THE PENDULUM BEAT RATE ADJUSTMENT, WITH THE OBJECTIVE BEING 9,894 BEATS PER HOUR, WHICH THE RESTORED #113 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. IMPORTANT: NOTICE SUPERSIZE PHOTO 10: THE RESTORED #113 MOVEMENT PENDULUM WIDTH AMPLITUDE IS A FULL 4 1/8 INCHES, INDICATING A HEALTHY, FRICTION FREE RELIABILITY, EXCEEDING ORIGINAL SPECIFICATIONS. REST ASSURED THE #113 WILL BE A STAR PERFORMER FOR YOU NOW AND IN THE YEARS TO COME. IT BEARS MENTIONING THAT A “COMPLETE SERVICE AND RESTORE” JOB ON THE PREMIUM AND ROBUST #113 MOVEMENT, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, WHEN DONE BY A COMPETENT PROFESSIONAL IS IN THE $450.00 RANGE. THAT IS ANOTHER REASON FOR THE DISCRIMINATING EBAY ANTIQUE BUYER TO CHOOSE WISELY WHEN PURCHASING!! AS INFORMATION, THE FULL 113 MOVEMENT RESTORATION THAT I PERFORM AS DESCRIBED ABOVE REQUIRES AROUND 16 HOURS TO ACCOMPLISH PROPERLY. THE VERY SPECIAL FULLY RESTORED CHIME 74 IS OFFERED AS A BUY IT NOW OPPORTUNITY, SO THAT ANYONE IN THE EBAY COMMUNITY SO INTERESTED MAY PURCHASE THIS EXTRAORDINARY HEIRLOOM GRADE ANTIQUE WESTMINSTER CLOCK.
