Waterbury "Regulator 16"
Oak, ca. 1893.
This is a true Jewelers regulator with an 8-day pinwheel movement, sweep seconds hand, porcelain dial, and gridiron pendulum. Typical of Waterbury the pendulum rods are nickel plated on alternating rods. The case is particularly fancy with lots of trim and button pieces, and a nice carved leaf pattern near the top. The Tran Du Ly reference books show this clock with a fancy top, but this clock never looks to have had one.
We were told that until recently this clock spent it’s entire life in an Indiana pharmacy. There is a label on the pendulum for a Swanton, OH pharmacy so this very well could be true.
