I'm selling this clock for a friend who is very ill. The clock measures 10 1/4" across the front and 10 3/4" across the back. Marked "Warren & Bailey Co. Los Angeles, Cal." It is also marked "The Ashland valve Co. Boston Mass."(see photo) It is also marked S.T. 2035 at the very bottom of the dial. The dial is 8 1/2" total with a 7 1/2" chapter ring. Seth Thomas # 10 movement is clearly marked. This clock has been in storage for a few years but it appears it was serviced prior to that. The movement looks very clean for it's age. I wound it and it took off running at a pretty good clip. It seems to be running strong. Very heavy duty case (see photos) weighs almost 14 pounds! I'm no historian on horological items but my best guess would be that a clock this heavy duty would have been used either for a locomotive or an engine room or possibly a marine or railroad application. T are 3 screws holding the dial on and 2 are blued and 1 is not. The overall condition of this clock is very good. It has been well cared for and it shows. Please remember that this is a used clock and being sold as is so ask questions before you bid since all sales are final. T will be no refunds or returns. I will be glad to e-mail additional photos upon request. If you want a heavy duty clock, then this is the one for you. This clock will be double boxed ... read more
