Seth Thomas #3 Regulator
The Seth Thomas Clock Company, Thomaston CT produced some of the finest precision regulator clocks. These were designed to meet the demanding standards for “Railroad Standard Time.” They were housed in well constructed cases, and perhaps the most highly sought after by collectors is the No. 3 Seth Thomas crafted with crotch grain Mahogany. In this model, The Seth Thomas Company employed an over-sized 8- day weight driven trapezoid movement, cut steel pinions, Graham “Dead Beat” Escapement, and maintaining power. The movement is secured the the cast iron bracket mounted to the backboard with four posts and retaining pins. The nickel finished brass shell weight is identified by the end caps with knurled edges. The original 14 inch painted zinc dial is original to this clock. The condition of the dial is very good with only very minor discoloration, minor losses. . The dial has a seconds register and large Arabic numerals. The overall size of this clock and the dial in this model makes it well suited for use in large waiting rooms in train stations. The dial is signed by the The Seth Thomas Co. below the center arbor & .and at the very bottom edge of the dial below 6’o’clock reads “MADE IN U.S.A.”
