Condition Report For Lot# 784 :
this timepiece is in good original condition overall with some inlay absent from dial surround. The original dial has inpaint around center shaft and numeral "1" and the "WELCH SPRING FORESTVILLE CONNECTICUT" signature has been partially rubbed off. The movement appears to be the same as Welch used in the "No. 2 Regulator" with exception of the bridge work for the verge, which is similar to the bridge work for the "No. 5" or "No. 6 Regulator". Although more formal in style that the traditional Anglo-American spring clocks, this offers evidence that American movements were being cased up in England through the 3rd quarter of the 19th Century. Weights may be replacements. Ht 57"
Estimate: $1500 - $2000
