The All Original Signet Stamped Seth Thomas Brass Movement has been completely disassembled and inspected, hand cleaned and polished, then ultrasonically cleaned,reassembled, oiled, and set; and after five weeks, the clock is still keeping time and beat, striking the half hours on a delightfully crisp cup bell, and counting the hours with the deep rich cathedral gong Seth Thomas is known for.It is an eight day movement, so it must only be wound once per week.
