Vintage Desk Clock, Cortland/concord, 8-day, Swiss, Running, Nice, C. 1973:
Who Can offer: Only buyers with at least 10 responses AND a percentile of more than 95% can participate in this sale.
General Description: What is being offered for sale is very handsome brass desk/shelf clock by the Concord Watch Co. The name on the dial is Cortland, which is appropriate. The clock was presented to “P.O.G.” for 50 years of service (the date on the top left is 1923 and 1973 is on the top right), See the photo gallery for details and condition, which is VERY GOOD.
The clock is complete and fully functional. The clock appears to be all original.
The height of the clock is 4-7/8”. The width is 5-7/8”. The depth is 1-1/2”. The weight is 1 pound 12 ounces.
Casemaker & Composition: The maker of the case is most likely the Concord Watch Co. The composition is gilded brass. The bottom of the case is marked “Swiss #183”.
Monogram: The case has no monogram or personal inscription. Thus, it can be used for a presentation piece.
Case Condition: There are no dings or dents or significant scratches – see photos. Note that some of the gilding has worn off.
Dial/Hands: Excellent – and they have not been refinished or touched up.
Operational: I don’t know when the movement was last cleaned and lubricated, but as is, it is ticking nicely and the balance has a good motion in all positions and is true in both the round and the flat. The clock is likely keeping time to within a minute per day, plus the regulator has room for adjustment.
Winding/Setting: The winding and setting mechanisms are nice and smooth.
Guarantee: The clock can be returned for a refund of the offer amount if the seller is notified within 30 days of receipt (as determined by Delivery Confirmation) and the clock is in the condition shown in the photos.
It is important to me that every customer is 100% satisfied. Thus, I will do whatever is required to make sure that each and every customer is pleased with ALL aspects of the transaction.
Payment and Shipment: All payments should be received by me within 10 days after the sale has ended. However, since I have a “no question return policy” and if the buyer is unable to make payment, he can simply cancel the sale without any consequences.
IMPORTANT Shipping Details: Buyer pays for USPS Priority mail.
In ALL cases, the carrier must be the United States Postal Service (USPS). Fedex, DHL, and UPS are not acceptable.
There are NO handling or packaging fees for shipping. Delivery confirmation and insurance (if required) will be paid for by the seller.
