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.

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.

RESTORATION AND TECHNICAL DETAILS

THE EIGHT DAY EARLY ISSUE #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 EARLY ISSUE #48R MOVEMENT – THE AMPLITUDE WIDTH IS A FULL 3 3/4 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:

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!!
