Antique Seth Thomas Side Wind Ships Clock

RARE SETH THOMAS SIDE WIND
SHIP'S CHRONOMETER LEVER
Movement No. 5006  Ca 1882

Rare Seth Thomas Side Wind Ships Clock in brass case on stand image  STAND INCLUDED A $75.00 VALUE

Seth Thomas, America's oldest clock maker operating since 1813, was the official supplier to the U.S. Navy for almost 100 years. This clock would have served on our Grey hulled ships.

Presented is a Seth Thomas ship's side winding chronometer that has been fully restored. This is only the third example we've discovered in thirteen years marking it a very rare model. Heretofore, we only knew of its existence in books and catalogs which only had line drawings and not photographs. This model clock was intended to be mounted on a bulkhead on a ship's bridge, in the navigator's shack, or in the officer's wardroom, starting in service in 1881.  That said, it is spectacular when placed on a desk, mantle, or side table using the antique reproduction stand shown in the pictures which is included. 

This Herculean clock is housed in a robust forged  brass case with screw on bezel and prominent flange weighing in at a heavy 11 pounds. It has a porcelain dial, with a 4 1/2" viewing area with Roman numerals, and has a solid, cast aluminum dust ring. The maker's name appears under the numeral XII and the black spade hands are over a small seconds dial which in turn is over the numeral VI. A key adjustable Fast/Slow regulator is within the XII o'clock position and should not be mistaken as the winding arbor. This clock is in very good condition and has just been serviced by a master c locksmith that formerly headed the Chelsea Clock Company's Repair Department. It now is keeping perfect time during its rated period. The Seth Thomas catalog says it is supposed to have a one day movement, but this example runs for 55 hours. 

In Seth Thomas's Catalog of the day, they had this to say: This fine lever clock was specially designed for steamers or other situations  where accurate timekeeping is required and a pendulum clock cannot be used. The movements are made in the best manner, with steel pinions and chronometer balance, jeweled, and are fitted up with finely tapered hair springs. They have a very simple regulator which provides for the most accurate adjustment. They are put up in cast brass cases with porcelain dials. 

The ingenuity and workmanship of Seth Thomas was recognized throughout the world because of their high grade precision time pieces making this a great relic of maritime and horological history!

CONDITION: This example has been recently serviced by the former head of the Chelsea Clock Co's Repair Department, a man with 30 years experience. The broken minute hand was silver soldered by him and is is slightly crooked. He cleand and oiled the movement and brought it back to near new condition. It now is keeping perfect time with a quartz comparison watch. For a clock that is over 116 years old, this is a remarkable achievement. The porcelain face has a few scratch marks around the Fast/Slow arbor which is fitted with a grommet. The One Day No. 5006 movement runs for three days or longer. A special key with two sizes is included.

DIMENSIONS:
Diameter of Dial   5"                      Viewing area 4 1/2"
Diameter Bezel    6 3/4"                 Depth           6 3/4"  
Full Diameter       8 1/2"                 Weight         11 lbs

 This Seth Thomas ships clock is a perfect addition for your desk, mantle, a prestige collection or as an important gift.
