Circa 1910 Seth Thomas 8 Day External Bell Ship's Clock San Francisco :
$149


Here's an interesting early 1900s SETH THOMAS 8 day external bell ship's clock. The clock is intact but has seen a lot of use over the years and is being sold "as is". "No. 263" is printed at the bottom of the back label.

There's an interesting label from the LOUIS WEULE COMPANY...6 CALIFORNIA STREET,SAN FRANCISCO.... CHRONOMETER & NAUTICAL INSTRUMENT MAKERS glued over the original Seth Thomas label. The business was at the foot of California St. about 3 blocks from Piers 1 & 2 and the San Francisco Ferry Building. They may have sold the clock or the label may have been added when the clock was repaired. "L.W. 1913" is also written in ink on the back with what may be a repair reference.

I bought this at an estate sale and the woman said her grandfather had been a ship's Captain who lived in the San Franciscon Bay Area.

The clock winds easily and runs weakly but continuously when laying flat on it's back. It ran for 1/2 hour when upright before stopping. As you can see from the wear on the face it has been wound hundreds of times.

The mainspring for the chimes is broken - the winder turns freely and the broken spring can be seen from the back.

There's some veneer missing behind the bell as shown. No parts appear to be missing.

I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. I WILL NOT end an sale early or change it to BUY IT NOW. I prefer to ship everything via Priority Mail. California buyers MUST include 8.75% California Sales Tax or include a completed and signed California Resale Form with their payment.

Payment is expected within 5 days of the end of the sale.
