This is a VERY BEAUTIFUL AND RARE example of a LARGE OFFICE Waterbury Regulator Wall Clock in BEAUTIFUL 100% ALL ORIGINAL condition. A REAL FIND FOR SURE AND A SUPER COLLECTOR'S ITEM! It is listed in the book Waterbury Clocks and Watches by Tran Duy Ly. This clock is all original and in GREAT condition. The top and bottom glass are original and very wavy. It is a very HIGH QUALITY classy Office Regulator clock in need of a warm loving home. It was made in 1890. It has a signed "Waterbury Clock Co" 9 day time only movement. The movement runs very well and keeps good time. The movement was just cleaned, oiled, pivots polished and bushings added w needed. This clock will not need servicing for many years to come, and is ready for the next 100 years! This is a labor intensive service, with many clockmakers charging 250.00 and up. We recommend having it oiled every 2 to 3 years to keep it in tip-top shape! With the purchase of this clock for an additional $ 2.25 we will include an oiler kit with a professional oiler loaded with enough oil to oil approximately 50 clocks with easy instructions so you could even do it yourself! This clock has the original large and heavy highly desirable pendulum. The case is also extremely beautiful! The case is SOLID OAK made with a beautiful FANCY VICTORIAN authentic design in great condition with its original finish. The original bottom door still has its original glass with the original painting! The signed dial is ORIGINAL, not been touched up or messed with at all, also very easy to read. I doubt if the clock has been worked on much as the screws and screw holes for the movement, dial, etc. are original and are tight. The clock comes with a key to wind it. The metal around the dial (bezel) is original, great condition (no extra screw holes) with a great patina. The hands are original are in great condition. Has the original back and the original paper label. The movement is a very strong runner. Runs great with a really wide pendulum swing and a happy ticking sound. This is truly a wonderful and rare clock! The clock is quite large and measures 37 inches high, 6 inches deep, and 17 ¾ inches wide. The top glass has a small "chip" area near the number 3 - does not detract but adds character. It would be MUCH better to keep the original glass in t! These antique clocks amaze me - could you imagine any other consumer product still working after 100 years! And the truly amazing thing with proper care they will work easily past the next 200 years, and much more! If you are looking for an antique clock that looks like it was cherished its whole life, and looks just about like it did the day it was bought, very high quality, and aged to a perfect patina - this is it! Antique Clocks are a Fine Investment. Each one has a unique quality, as well as appreciating in value and beauty with age. You will become attached to your antique clocks and they will become a meaningful and important part of your life adding untold joy each day you own them. They can be handed down from one generation to another as they increase daily in value. Antique clocks serve many purposes other than being useful in telling time, decorative in your home, a valuable asset in your estate and above all a faithful servant and friend which will be true to you to the end of time. This clock will be packed very very carefully by our award winning packing department (my wife assisted by Wild Thing) to insure a safe delivery, and the buyer is to pay $34.50 for shipping and ins. This clock is VERY large and will require a double oversize box and lots and lots of packing materials. I will gladly answer any emails promptly. I have always hated that "reserve" when I have bid myself so this fine clock has no reserve and a very low (gulp) starting bid. We love these clocks and I will be glad to help you set up your new clock, or answer questions long after the sale via email. Personal checks are welcome, but will cause a 10-day delay in shipping. Pay Pal accepted.
