Antique Western Union Self Winding Clock Of Ny:
$500


Features: Clock face is 14 3/8 " diameter with a second hand. The cabinet has(1) key to lock the cabinet door. A morse code key is on the left inside and the pendulum is as pictured. Wiring runs up to two holes at the top which was used to synchronize the time each day with the morse code key.Stamped into the brass movement is the date of the"Patent".A serial number is also on the backing which is made of plywood. Western Union owned the Self Winding Clock Co.,and this was the first clock to use batteries; ergo the term "self winding". Apparently , those who chose to subscribe , the U.S. Naval Obseveratory in Washington, D.C. would send out a signal each day(via) morse code. These clocks were made to be very accurate.Other businesses such as Train Stations , Banks, Gov't offices and Schools , used them. The cabinet and the clock itself is in fine condition except for minor flaws on the face as shown in the pic. I have 2 dry cell batteries which were removed from the clock , when it was removed from the office. They are available online. Connecting wires are included as shown . I have never had the clock running , however it looks good and the Lady from whom it was purchased said she worked for Western Union until the offices were closed.She said it was working and synchronized each day. This is truly an antique/vintage clock. It will need to be cleaned and oiled , other than that , it should run for a long time if connected properly connected. This is not only a complete clock , but a real bargain for the "Discriminating Collector" It is for sale in "AS Is " condition. It is the most "sophisticated" Western Union Clock I have ever seen! Item will be shipped upon receipt of cashiers check from buyer.
