I ASK THAT YOU ALLOW THE TEXT AND HIGH RESOLUTION SUPERSIZE PICTURES TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!!! THE FINE FIVE INCH PREMIUM PORCELAIN DIAL ASSEMBLY IS FLAWLESS. TAKE A HIGH RESOLUTION LOOK VIA SUPERSIZE PHOTO 4. LIKEWISE THE CABINET IS SUPERIOR AS WELL. THE CABINET IS REALLY A SIGHT TO BEHOLD – VERY LOVELY AND IT DISPLAYS SO NICELY. 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 FRONT DIAL BEZEL DOOR WITH HEAVY BEVELED GLASS CLOSES NICELY AND TIGHTLY, WITH NO “HINGE DROOP.” THE DOOR OPENS WIDE, ALLOWING PLENTY OF ROOM FOR THE KEY WINDING PROCESS. THE BEAUTIFULLY AGED DULL RUBBED SHELLAC-OVER-DARK MAHOGANY PATINA FINISH ON THE HIGH GRADE RIBBON MAHOGANY CABINET HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY PRESERVED, CONDITIONED AND RESTORED, RETAINING THE DESIREABLE SATIN LUSTRE AND PATINA, AS WELL AS THE MUCH SOUGHT AFTER GRAINED MAHOGANY COLORATION AND HUE– THE APPEARANCE ACCENTS THIS CLOCK’S CHARACTER, BOTH AS AN ANTIQUE AND AS A DECORATIVE ACCESSORY WHEN DISPLAYED. LET ME POINT OUT A BIT OF SHELLAC BLISTER ON THE TOP, VISIBLE IN PHOTO 6, SO THE CABINET IS NOT PERFECT. YET THE CABINET IS ALL ORIGINAL AND THE MINOR SHELLAC BLISTER DOES NOT DETRACT, AND IS A PART OF THE WALES' CHARACTER. ALL ORIGINAL, AS OPPOSED TO STRIPPED AND REFINISHED IS ALWAYS APPROPRIATE! THE HALF HOUR IS SOUNDED ON A HIGHEST GRADE 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 WALES VIA THE ATTACHED E COMMERCE PLAYER SOUND FILES. THE NOTES STRUCK FROM THIS PARTICULAR CATHEDRAL GONG HAVE A WONDERFUL AND LINGERING DECAY. LISTEN AND YOU WILL HEAR WHAT I MEAN. IN THE ANTIQUES TRADE, IT WAS RECENTLY NOTED THAT QUALITY ANTIQUE CLOCK MARKET VALUES CONTINUE TO RISE, DESPITE THE BEGINNINGS OF A LEVELING OFF AND PROJECTED DECLINE OF VALUES IN CERTAIN OTHER CATEGORIES OF ANTIQUES, PARTICULARLY FURNITURE. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT REASON GIVEN FOR ANTIQUE CLOCKS HOLDING AND GAINING VALUE IS THAT THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FIT AMERICA’S DECORATING LIFESTYLE, ESPECIALLY MANTLE SIZE CLOCKS AND OTHER STYLES THAT EFFICIENTLY USE SPACE, WHEREAS ANTIQUE FURNITURE AND OTHER LARGER ITEMS ARE NOT AS GOOD A MATCH FOR THE LIVING AND DECORATING LIFESTYLE OF NOW AND THE FUTURE. ONE THOUGHT IS FOR CERTAIN - A QUALITY ANTIQUE SETH THOMAS CLOCK WILL ALWAYS BE A FINE INVESTMENT!!! 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 WALES - 1904 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 #48R FINEST ROUND SETH THOMAS MOVEMENT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DISASSEMBLED, INSPECTED AND CLEANED WITH ULTRASONICS. ALL WORN PIVOT BUSHINGS WERE REPLACED, AND BOTH THE TIME AND STRIKE MAINSPRINGS WERE UNLOADED CLEANED, INSPECTED, TESTED FOR PROPER STRENGTH, PROPERLY LUBRICATED AND RELOADED. 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. SUPERSIZE PHOTO 10 IS THE MOST IMPORTANT, FROM A MOVEMENT RESTORATION PERSPECTIVE. NOTICE THE WIDE SWEEP AND ARC AMPLITUDE WIDTH OF THE PENDULUM BEAT ON THE RESTORED #48R MOVEMENT – THE AMPLITUDE WIDTH IS A FULL 3 1/2 INCHES AS MEASURED FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BOB AT LEFT SWING TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOB AT RIGHT SWING. THIS FAR EXCEEDS THE MINIMUM SPEC OF 2 1/4 INCHES!!! THE ROBUST AMPLITUDE WIDTH INDICATES THE MOVEMENT IS IN THE HIGHEST STATE OF GOOD HEALTH, WITH VIRTUALLY NO FRICTION, NO DRAG, AND PLENTY OF RESERVE ENERGY FROM THE MAINSPRINGS. AS INFORMATION, BEWARE IF A #48R MOVEMENT HAS AN ANEMIC PENDULUM BEAT SWING BECAUSE IT IS A TALE-TALE INDICATOR OF POOR MOVEMENT HEALTH AND THE NEED FOR EXTENSIVE SERVICE WORK. 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 12: · 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 #48R MOVEMENT EASILY ACHIEVED AND HELD ZERO ERROR. · THE RIGHT INSET PHOTO SHOWS THE PENDULUM BEAT RATE ADJUSTMENT SETUP, WITH AN OBJECTIVE OF 9,656 BEATS PER HOUR FOR THE #48R MOVEMENT. AGAIN, THE RESTORED #48R FINEST ROUND 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 #48R MOVEMENT ALONE IS A $300 VALUE!!! IT MAKES SENSE TO PURCHASE AN ANTIQUE MANTLE CLOCK THAT YOU KNOW IS READY FOR YEARS OF RELIABLE SERVICE. WHEN YOU PURCHASE ONE OF MY CLOCKS YOU CAN BE ASSURED!! THIS IS A LARGER MEDIUM PLUS SIZE CATHEDRAL DORIC CABINET MANTEL OR TABLE CLOCK – AN IDEAL SIZE - SUITABLE FOR MANTLE, TABLE, SHELF OR WALL BRACKET DISPLAY - PERFECT FOR A SPECIAL GIFT, FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE, OR AS AN ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION. MEASUREMENTS ARE 10 ½” H X 8 ½” W X 6 ½” D. THE WALES - 1904 IS OFFERED FOR YOUR REVIEW AND CONSIDERATION.
