Seth Thomas Regulator No. 5

Catalog Description:

Seth Thomas "Regulator No. 5", a style you almost never see. This one is contemporary, made by an excellent cabinetmaker and generally copied in exact dimensions of the Seth Thomas original. This beautifully carved walnut case is 48" high, burl wood accents used just like the old ones. There is a wood bezel surrounding the 7" enameled dial, 5 hand-turned finials, and side glasses like the Vienna clocks. The wood case overall is well crafted with remarkable detail, and retains its beautiful, original finish. The 8 day, weight driven movement is of high quality, steel pinions, Graham dead beat escapement. The brass gears and plates, appear heavier, cut thicker, and the gear pinions are larger than in more common movements. Appears to be well built. The brass pendulum, hardened with cast iron is 4.5" in diameter, the brass weight with 5 pounds of lead encased, is 6" in length. The dial, hands, crank key, and all hardware are all original. We ran the clock in our home for a time and must say it performs well and gives a great appearance. The original ST #5 is now selling over $10,000.
