Each watch was numbered sequentially and represented an individual month of the 50 years. This was one of the most extravagant and expensive watches that had ever been made with highly unusual 12K solid gold plates (originally intended to be 14K but changed for engineering purposes) and was meant to compete with the Edward Howard by Howard Watch Co. and the Premier Maximus by the American Waltham Watch Co. It retailed for $500, equivalent to $15000 to $20000 today. Gruen promoted this watch as, "the priceless possession of a few", which was adopted as the title of a well known NAWCC Bulletin Supplement (please see this supplement for reference).

Each of these clocks is worthy of restoration, with quality solid wood cases in very nice condition. The Junghans features the A13 3-train movement, but is missing hands and motion works along with a pendulum. The Waterbury's movement is unusual with the heavy chime train mounted behind the other two trains. It has a detached new brass bezel, and no glass. These obviously need professional attention, and are sold as is. Hts 13" and 9 1/2".
563 $200 $350 Clocks- 2 (Two) 8 day, time and strike wood case mantel clocks, New Haven "Tambour No 1/2" and French, 20th century The solid mahogany tambour, with old surface, has a pristine porcelain dial and round movement with rack & snail striking, ht 10 1/2". The other clock combines an old Marti exposed-escapement movement, porcelain dial, thick beveled glass, and brass hardware (but wrong pendulum and soldered-on bell stand) with a highly decorative but newer made-up wood case with cameo and pearl panels, ht 12". Movements may need service.
564 $200 $350 Clocks- 2 (Two) American 8 day, time and strike wood shelf clocks, Kroeber "Patrol" and E. Ingraham "Micha", late 19th century Nicer is the Kroeber walnut case with a good toned paper dial and beveled glass indicator pendulum, ht 21". The taller Ingraham is fancy pressed oak but its paper dial is more worn, ht 22". Neither has a label; both have good glasses and old finishes on intact cases. Movements tick but could use service.
565 $150 $250 Clocks- 2 (Two) American mantels: Seth Thomas 30 hour bronze finish cast metal "Long Alarm"; and Ansonia "Aspen" oak 8 day, time and strike gingerbread; c1906 The Seth Thomas is in remarkably good condition with a clean dial and intact case showing a great old patina, ht 9". The Ansonia has an irregular old finish on its complete and patterned case, and has a new paper dial, but also is an alarm model with a nice indicator pendulum, ht 22". Both movements tick but should be cleaned.
566 $200 $350 Clocks- 2 (Two) black enameled iron 8 day, time and strike mantel clocks, Ansonia and Kroeber "Benicia", c1895 Both heavy cases retain their original black paint, with gold flourishes still showing. The Kroeber dial is newly papered, and this model is not shown in Ly with the bust of Beethoven, but the bottom label confirms the identification, ht 15". This exact Ansonia model also is not in Ly, but the movement is signed. Its brass ornaments and dial are clean and bright, ht 10 1/2" Both movements tick and strike okay.
567 $200 $350 Clocks- 2 (Two) brass, glass and wood crystal regulators: French 8 day, time and strike; German 400-day; 20th century. These both appear to be attractive but made-up, with well-finished wood and brass, old movements, and flat glass. The French works are Vincenti also stamped "Maple & Co., Ltd, Paris", swinging a simulated mercury pendulum, new paper dial, ht 14". The disk-pendulum works, with original porcelain dial, have the KO (Kieninger & Obergfell) rear trademark, ht 11". Both movements seem to be running but may need service.
568 $150 $250 Clocks- 2 (Two) Bristol, Connecticut 8 day, time and strike wood mantel clocks, Brewster & Ingrahams, and E. Ingraham, late 1800's Older and better is the Brewster & Ingrahams mahogany beehive with original signed painted metal dial, etched glass tablet, and inside label (water stained). The case needs some minor veneer restoration. The oak Ingraham gingerbread also has a nicely restored case with old attached brass-faced level and thermometer. This model was likely a soap or wringer premium. There is an alarm movement and a great Kroeber Patent indicator pendulum with thick beveled glass (not original), the dial is newly papered. Both movements will need service. Hts 24" and 19"
569 $100 $200 Clocks- 2 (Two) Connecticut 8 day, time & strike black wood mantels: Seth Thomas Adamantine; and Gilbert "Duane", c1900 These are fancy, complete and original, but will need their cases and movements cleaned.

570 $150 $300 Clocks- 2 (Two) Connecticut 8 day, time & strike marble-look wood mantels: Wm. Gilbert "Athol" ; and Seth Thomas Adamantine; c1904 Both these cases are in nice condition with very minor scuffs and losses, pierced gilt dials, bold marbleizing and only minor flaws. The Gilbert is in the Ly book, with its "Italian Marble" finish, but we cannot find an exact match for the Seth Thomas (not surprising with the quantity of models they produced). Movements looks clean, and tick & gong okay. Ht 12 1/2".
571 $75 $150 Clocks- 2 (Two) Connecticut miniature lancet case rear-wind desk time pieces, Seth Thomas and New Haven, early 20th century The smaller 30 hour New Haven has a nice polished brass case, signed porcelain dial and beveled glass, ht 4".

The little cream-color Lux 4-column temple, model D347, with Wilcox trademark on the base, is in very good condition with one little corner loss and a nice white dial, ht 5". Both rear-wind balance-wheel movements will need service.
573 $150 $300 Clocks- 2 (Two) Connecticut oak 8 day, time and strike mantel clocks, early 20th century Both cases are in very good condition with no losses. The round top Seth Thomas clock is better with its fine porcelain dial and convex beveled glass, ht 14". It has the round French style movement.

The miniature steeple has a label by Ansonia Brass & Copper Co., a hand-done replaced dial, minor veneer edge chips, and a nice old fruit-theme tablet with very minor flaking, ht 15". Both have old finishes in good condition, and movements that may need service.
577 $150 $250 Clocks- 2 (Two) Connecticut small 30 hour wooden cottage time pieces, c1850 There are no maker names on these time-only clocks, but we believe them to be Connecticut. Both have old finishes and glasses, and wooden dials -- one painted, one yellowing paper. The clock on the right has the same mov't as another one in the sale bearing the label of "New England Clock Co".

Ingraham "Ruby" walnut 8 day, time and strike gingerbread clock, 1902. The Pratt's dated and dark inside label is nearly intact on this nicely refinished case. The multi-color wooden dial is about as good as they get, with 3 winding holes, and the mirror tablet is old but may not be original. The rarer alarm movement was recently serviced, but the alarm verge and hammer are absent. The top bell, and pulley covers, remain. At some point, the two weights were painted white, ht 32" The gingerbread has an old finish and glass, but the dial has been repapered and the backboard also painted white.

748 $5000 $7000 Howard & Davis, Boston, Special order "Regulator No. 3" banjo, with unique 66 beats/ minute movement, and with original second's bit below 12, and with appropriate keystone & crutch for the seconds bit, and gilt-exposed pendulum stick, c1848 as is common for this time period, only the dial is signed, however our experts give this clock original status [except for items noted]. Old time collectors realize that just when you think you have seen everything, something different comes along. The plates of this Movement have the brushed pattern typical of Howard and Davis, and all wheels and train parts are "Howard issue". Pendulum stick retains its original gilding, and bob has the remains of its brushed finish [someone made the mistake of using brasso instead of clock cleaner on the bob]. Original cast iron weight bears a cast in "3". The dilemma on this clock is the lower tablet, which has been replaced with one bearing the gilt oval in the center; it is our feeling that the original would have had the oval lower to show the 66 beat pendulum in typical fashion. For comparison, we refer you to Petrucelli & Sposato's book on Banjo Clocks, page 159, showing an all original striking Howard & Davis, with the pendulum showing in the TOP half of the glass, and the date of mfg showing in the lower half. Our best recommendation would be to make a tablet with the oval orifice positioned to show the center of the pendulum bob. The only other item that is not original is the brass tab for the bow-tie pendulum hold down, which could be easily replaced. Note the escape wheel on this Movement has 33 teeth, versus the standard 30 that Howard used. The 3 extra teeth allow it to time in this case, and show the passing minute on the seconds bit. Case has been French polished; dial signature may have been strengthened long ago. Ht 38"

884 $20000 $25000 A rare and early Japanese bell clock (Tsurigane Dokei) within a finely cast bronze bell with Japanese characters and double headed dragon form handle; having a posted, iron, double spring driven, striking movement with crown wheel escapement and time regulated by a large circular balance with moveable double weights, originally for adjusting the temporal hours every day before each sunrise and sunset with the change of each Japanese season. The brass dial with single, fixed hand has traditional Japanese numerals 9 through 4 with applied silvered butterflies to the original surrounding dial plate. The rotating dial with adjustable "hour" and "half hour" markers is a common 19th Century upgrade to many very early Japanese clocks that have a single foliot or balance, since changing the weights and hence the rate before sunrise and sunset each day was extremely unhandy. This is verified by J. Drummond Robertson in The Evolution of Clockwork , page 226 saying "we find some of the old clocks "converted" to the new style of motion work. The old fixed hour circle with its revolving centre was removed and the new revolving circle and its fixed hand with adjustable "hour" plates was substituted." This is the case in each of the only other examples of Japanese Bell Clocks of which we are aware: see Japanese Clocks by N.H.N. Mody, plate 113, fig.1 for an almost identical example to the clock being offered. This dial conversion is also apparent in the Bronze Bell Clock sold at Sotheby's Masterpieces From the Time Museum Sale, Part Two, 19 June 2002, lot 126. An inscription on the bell reads Fukushima ya Katsutaro 1689, who may be the maker of either the clock or the bell. Most Japanese spring driven clocks have a fusee to the time train and a going barrel to the strike train. This movement is anomalous, in that is has two going barrels. It may be that the Japanese had not developed a method of turning a fusee at this early date, c1690 the clock movement and bell are in excellent original condition. Service will be needed for time train mainspring and barrel. A well designed contemporary stand mirror are included. The Japanese system of timekeeping divided the day into two periods; from sunset to sunrise and then from sunrise to sunset. These periods would vary in length depending on the season of the year. Each period contained six equal intervals numbered 9 to 4. Sunset and sunrise were the sixth interval of each period and midnight and midday were the ninth interval of each period. This is an extremely rare clock and in unusually good condition. Ht 11 1/2" bell only, Ht 23 1/2" to top of stand

894 $3000 $5000 James Arthur, New York City, a "one-of-a-kind" shelf banjo time piece, weight driven, 8 day. 1903 [dated] Odd pieces from the James Arthur estate have filtered onto the market over the past half century, and older collectors recognize his work at first sight.

903 $3500 $4500 New England tiger maple tall case clock, c1810, now with period Riley Whiting, Winchester, Conn. 30 hour time and strike wooden works. The case, with an old refinish and replaced skirt, appears very similar to an example by Emory shown on page 24 of Dworetsky. One side cove molding is loose and has a break on the lower left case side and the brass castings on the columns of the hood are replacements. The consignor has supplied a provenance sheet, indicating that the original movement was exchanged for a brass one c1920. The current movement and dial c1830, sitting on a new plywood seat board, was fit more recently and looks ready to run. Flwg comments added by editor: " Jesse Emory worked in Weare, New Hampshire and apparently made some cases for his clocks, but this is in no way one of his cases. The clock referenced is not in its original case. I knew that clock shown in Dworetsky when it belonged to an old collector in Newburg, New York. I believe this clock case was also made in New York state from the design and the extensive use of high quality tiger maple (which was plentiful in NY state, but not so much in Conn.) This handsome case could have had a wooden movement originally as it is about c. 1810-1820, but is nice enough to have had a brass movement.", [Chris Bailey 3/12] Ht 97" to top of finial"

Please see Brooks Palmer "The Book of American Clocks", fig 239 for this exact clock and also "The Clocks of Irenus Atkins" by Phil Gregory, page 66. Ht 25" Ives licensed the use of his wagon spring to Atkins & Whiting (1850-1855), and to Atkins Clock Mfg. Co. (1855-1858). In 1858 Ives forbid the latter firm to use his wagon spring clock. Presumably all the examples manufactured after the new firm Atkins Clock Co. was formed in 1859 had only the fusee movement for their 30-day models. The signature on this dial is spurious. The dials on these were never signed, though because of this clock's photo being published 60 years ago, this signature has wrongly been put on many repainted dials of this model. (C. Bailey, 2011)

Claude Grivolas of St. Cloud, France, was issued Swiss Patent #43059 for a year running torsion pendulum clock.

1043 $900 $1200 Self-Winding Clock Co. large brass and wood public gallery clock, c1925 The consigner reports that this heavy patriotic case was in the Massachusetts Statehouse. The thick cast front and sides are brass, attached to a wood backboard. Note that the patina is darker than appears in the photo. Some decorative ring is missing from the dial center, since we see three empty holes and the trace of a circle. The signed movement, No. 27069, clearly has not been used in some time, and we have not attempted to connect dry cells to it. The pendulum stick is broken and the bob is now absent. When restored, this will be an imposing historical time piece. As a further note, this model was offered in Self-Winding trade catalogs. It was the "Massachusetts" model and shown in LY, American Clocks Vol. 2 p. 271. The one in Ly has different hands, but I'm sure the hands are correct on this one in the sale. Ht 25"
