319 $300 $400 English, SYNCHRONOME, electro-magnetic impulsed precision regulator timepiece, c1925 overall very good to excellent original condition. You can find videos on You Tube explaining the operation, however like other better electrics, the pendulum receives only a periodic impulse to keep it swinging; and electrical impulses are sent outward to slave clocks at either minute or half minute intervals. The dial on this clock is really a small slave, advancing only when the main movement sends a jolt of current. Clock retains original components, including pendulum, heavy suspension unit and associated hardware. You will need a low voltage DC power supply for operation. Ht 51"

1092 $800 $1200 Unknown maker, Daniel Monroe-style 8 days, weight brass movement with alarm diamond head banjo wall timepiece, probably 20th century. Diamond head wall clocks were designed by Daniel Monroe, Jr. This case shows enough age to make it difficult to determine when this timepiece was actually made. Although it could be late 19th century, it MAY be a product of a wealthy Massachusetts collector (now deceased and we will not name) who was known for buying original movements and old case parts and manufacturing "great rarities" which he sold to as to investor/collectors or donated to museums for large tax write-offs If so, this clock is no more than 60 years old. However, it has a great appearance and has a period movement, probably by Aaron Willard, Jr. (similar to Aaron Jr. movements shown in Foley's book on Willard Patent Timepieces), though it is stamped "L. Curtis". Hands are period and the lead weight is old. The maker was clever in designing a spring assembly to operate the alarm. Nicely executed glasses, now with some flaking.
