75 $10000 $15000 Charles Fasoldt, Albany, NY, "Patent Chronometer", model S2o, caliber III, 18 size, 19 jewels, stem wind and pin set, nickel bar movement with cotes de Geneve decoration and Fasoldt's patent chronometer escapement, cut bimetallic balance, resilient banking, gold jewel settings, wolf's tooth ratchet wheel, and Fasoldt's micrometric regulator, the crown wheel bridge engraved "Made For S.D. Gutchess", in a 14 karat, rose gold, hinged back and bezel, open face case with glazed cuvette, and Roman numeral, single sunk, white enamel dial marked "O.H.Fasoldt, Albany NY.", blued steel Breguet style hands, serial #539, c1880. CASE: Period case, fits well, but we cannot guarantee its originality; Minor scratches on outer surface of case; Marks on inside and edge of glazed cuvette from case knife; Back cover with repair to hinge, center section of hinge with split; Crystals loose; Bow replaced, too large, poorly shaped; Precious metal content marked. DIAL: Edge chips at 4:00, 8:30, 10:00; Scratches minor to dial; Dial replaced, made for this watch, possibly to replace a damaged original. HANDS: Very good. MOVEMENT PLATES: Minor scratches and marks; Scratches on regulator and jewel settings; Plates a bit dull; Minor spotting on crown wheel bridge; Balance stud screw missing, regulator with minor bend at point where the stud is secured; Specks of dirt / dust. MOVEMENT FUNCTION: Running order (winds, sets and ticks). The 14 karat rose gold case that houses this movement does not bear the mark of Fasoldts usual case maker, Edward Humbert, and is not the usual 18 karat gold, but cannot be rejected as incorrect based on this information alone. The casemakers mark, "H.E.D." may be that of casemaker Henry E. Droz, who worked at 92 Fulton St., a few blocks from Humberts Cordtlandt St. office in lower Manhattan. The Troy and Albany steamships docked at the head of both Fulton and Cortlandt streets, and so it is not unreasonable to believe that Fasoldt may have known both makers. The watch is the penultimate number in Fasoldts production, (#539 of an estimated 540, see M.C. Harrold, "Isochronal Chronometers Manufactured by Charles Fasoldt, 7/7/2000), and sold during the time when he was involved in the manufacture of his microscopes and micrometric rulings. A further possibility exists, as Otto Fasoldt [Charles' som] was active as a watchmaker in Albany by 1875. If his father had turned over the remaining watches to his son for sale, or had finishing and casing work performed by Otto while pursuing other interests, this could explain both the case and the dial. It is a mystery which warrants further study and research. This watch was made for Stephen D. Gutchess, son of James Gutchess (1838-1923) and Deborah Jane (Brooks) Gutchess (1840-1901). Stephen was born in Sep., 1861 in Michigan. By 1870 the family had moved to Mentz, Cayuga County, NY. He attended school at Port Byron, NY and became a teacher of business. By 1889 he was in partnership with John R. Carnell as Carnell & Gutchess, operating the Albany Business College at Albany, NY. In 1896 Gutchess sold out to Carnell and formed the Gutchess Metropolitan Business College at Detroit, MI where he and his wife, Sarah Adelaide (Armstrong) Gutchess, were Principal and Assistant Principal. By 1910 they and their only child Ralph D. (b. 1889) were living at Bridgeport, CT. In 1911 S. D. Gutchess purchased Brown's Business College, in Bridgeport, Conn., which was established in 1896 and had an annual enrollment of about 500 students. He changed its name to Gutchess College. It and the Detroit college were still operating in 1920.

The watch is running very well, has very good gilding, and even with its minor flaws is a nice example of early series III production. James William Ladd was born May 5, 1838 at Campton, NH, son of James Ladd and Charity (Willey) Ladd. This family moved from New Hampshire to Menasha, Winnebago County, Wisconsin before 1850. He married Mary Elizabeth Jackson at Chicago, IL in 1874. In 1880 he was city clerk and justice of the peace at Menasha, WI. By 1900 they were living at Merrill, Wisconsin where he was a retired banker. He reportedly died in 1900. By 1910 his widow and son were living in Pierce county, Washington state. She died in 1916 at Seattle, WA, age 74.

459 $200 $300 J.J. Beals, Boston, 30 hour, time and strike, weight wood movement c1835, in a mid 20th century hollow column case? This is a difficult clock to assess as it is not typical and was most likely custom made; pinning down a construction date is not easy. Dr. Shaffer had bought this later in life when perhaps his eyesight was failing a bit, as the overall visual experience is stunning, however close inspection shows modern construction methods on the case. Mahogany veneered case carries an original finish. The bottom door lacks a knob or lock and has a couple of nicks in the veneer. The sides of the case have what looks like satinwood veneer or a very fancy grained mahogany. The reverse painted tablet is modern. The mirror is old. It appears that whoever made the case mounted the dial door upside down as the current configuration shows too much white space above and below the dial, but it is still a nicely made clock. This actual clock was illustrated in the book "Clocks", by Doug Shaffer, 1980, p. 46. Ht 44"

Small lead weights appear old, however additional weight has been wired onto the bottoms to keep the clock running / playing. The case was refinished maybe 25 years ago to a rich cherry color, has reeded side quarter columns, holly stringing along the edges and a small floral inlay to the front of the plinth. There are several tunes on the wooden barrel (7?) hard to tell. Overall a great clock. Ht 97"

All of the cases of this model are extra deep, and there is a one+ inch spacer behind the bracket to bring the dial into position.

Of important note, is that we sold this model with a Ball Watch Co dial and mercury pendulum in October of 2011, lot 569, for a hammer price of $86,000.

You will need to make a mini whistle pipe facade to fill in the lower section of the door. (Bottom tablet is original). The bellows have been rebuilt and supply adequate air flow, all 16 pipes are present. We played the clock for half an hour and listened to all the tunes, which sound a bit like carnival tunes. Will need some TLC and adjustment to get it to start playing promptly, but once in motion, it plays along fine. The sister to this clock is in the American Watch & Clock Museum in Bristol, Conn, where you can get a look at the flute facade that goes below the dial; see museum clock pictured in Bailey's TWO HUNDRED YEARS OF CLOCKS AND WATCHES (1975), PG 142.

The month duration model is the rarest of the Crane clocks, c1845 Mahogany veneered empire case in original finish with wear in places to the finish. The gilt capitals and bases are hidden under a dark finish that makes it difficult to determine how much gilding is left. The columns look to be rosewood veneer, but again the finish is very dark. The three ball pendulum that was used on earlier models of the month version has a different holder than the example pictured in the NAWCC supplement on Crane clocks. It may have been modified to make it easier to hang pendulum on the spring suspension. The current glass and paper dial looks to be a later replacement as the glass has no distortion found in period glass. The hands are incorrect replacements Reverse painted glass is original with some minor loss of the green border. Door knob is original. Paper label inside the case is stained with some loss. There are no weights included as the weights that came with this clock do not fit the weight channels. A picture of what they look can be found on page 65 of the NAWCC supplement 16, 1987. A slotted strip of wood is included that needs to be cut to fit into the notches in the sides to the case to support the bottom of the dial. Ht 22"
