YOU WILL LOVE THIS CLOCK!!! – I KNOW I DO – I ADMIT I LOVE THEM ALL BUT HAVE NO MORE DISPLAY ROOM. I ASK THAT YOU ALLOW THE TEXT AND HIGH RESOLUTION SUPERSIZE PICTURES TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!!! ON THE DIAL THE TIME MAINSPRING WIND SHAFT IS LOCATED NEAR NUMERAL 5 AND THE STRIKE MAINSPRING WIND SHAFT IS NEAR NUMERAL 7. ABOVE THE NUMERAL 12 IS A SMALLER HOLE WITH ACCESS TO THE FASTER/SLOWER ADJUSTMENT SHAFT, USING THE OPPOSITE END OF THE CLOCK KEY. THE HALF HOUR IS SOUNDED ON A CATHEDRAL BELL SPIRAL GONG – THE SOUND IS MELLOW AND RESONANT, WITH A LOVELY LINGERING DECAY OF THE NOTE; THE HOUR COUNT FOLLOWS, WITH EACH HOUR ANNOUNCED AS A STRIKE ON THE CATHEDRAL BELL GONG. PLEASE REMEMBER TO HEAR THE BETA VIA THE ATTACHED E COMMERCE PLAYER SOUND FILE LINKS. THE NOTES STRUCK FROM THIS PARTICULAR CATHEDRAL GONG HAVE AN INVITING AND LINGERING DECAY. LISTEN AND YOU WILL HEAR WHAT I MEAN. THE HIGH RESOLUTION SUPERSIZE PHOTOS ARE PROVICED FOR YOU TO SEE ALL DETAILS OF THE CLOCK. THE PHOTOS REALLY DO NOT FULLY SHOW HOW NICELY THIS SETH SHOWS OFF – IT IS A BEAUTY!! THE CLOCK LOOKS EVEN BETTER WHEN VIEWED DIRECTLY THAN IN THE PHOTOS. THE BETA IS WELL PRESERVED AND FULLY RESTORED IN EVERY WAY. I TAKE GREAT CARE TO INSURE THAT EACH DISTINCTIVE CLOCK I OFFER IS SUPERB IN ALL RESPECTS. 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. THE EIGHT DAY FINE ROUND SETH THOMAS COUNT WHEEL MOVEMENT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DISASSEMBLED, INSPECTED AND CLEANED WITH ULTRASONICS. ALL WORN PIVOT BUSHINGS WERE REPLACED, AND BOTH THE TIME AND STRIKE MAINSPRINGS WERE SERVICED, INSPECTED AND TESTED TO ASSURE RELIABILITY. MAINSPRINGS ARE A CRITICAL ENERGY LINK TO ASSURE EXTENDED AND RELIABLE LONG TERM PERFORMANCE. ALL OPERATIONAL ASPECTS OF THE MOVEMENT WERE INSPECTED AND CORRECTED, IF NECESSARY, READYING THE MOVEMENT FOR YEARS AND YEARS OF SERVICE. THE MOVEMENT WAS THEN PROPERLY REASSEMBLED, LUBRICATED, TESTED AND ADJUSTED WITH BOTH ELECTRONIC AND MECHANICAL INSTRUMENTATION. A FINAL PORTION OF THE SERVICE PROCESS IS ELECTRONIC AND MECHANICAL TESTING OF THE MOVEMENT FOR PENDULUM BEAT ERROR, RATE, RELIABILITY AND OTHER FUNCTIONS – I HAVE SOME RESTORATION AND TESTING ILLUSTRATIONS IN THE PHOTOS, SO PLEASE TAKE A LOOK. NOTICE IN SUPERSIZE PHOTO 11: · THE LEFT INSET PICTURE SHOWS ELECTRONIC ADJUSTMENT OF THE PENDULUM BEAT, WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF APPROACHING ZERO ERROR, MEANING BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT SWINGS OF THE PENDULUM HAVE THE SAME AMPLITUDE AND DURATION CHARACTERISTICS. THIS RESTORED FINE ROUND MOVEMENT EASILY ACHIEVED AND HELD ZERO ERROR. · THE RIGHT INSET PHOTO SHOWS THE PENDULUM BEAT RATE ADJUSTMENT SETUP, WITH AN OBJECTIVE OF 10,715 BEATS PER HOUR FOR THE FINE ROUND MOVEMENT. AGAIN, THE RESTORED MOVEMENT ACHIEVED THE PROPER BEAT RATE TO ASSURE THE NECESSARY ACCURACY IN TIMEKEEPING, AS WELL AS THE ABILITY TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS FOR DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS IN THE FUTURE. THE COMPLETE SERVICE RESTORATION OF THE FINEST ROUND COUNT WHEEL MOVEMENT ALONE IS A $300 VALUE!!!
