Waltham Clock Company of Waltham, Massachusetts. Model No. 35 wall clock.

This Waltham clock is cataloged as the Model No. 35. It was manufactured by the Waltham Clock Company of Waltham, Massachusetts circa 1905. This is very difficult model to find. It is seldom seen for sale in the marketplace.

This is a very clean example. The movement is weight driven, wound with a crank key and is designed to run eight days on a full wind. Like all waltham made weight driven clocks, the quality is outstanding. It features heavy brass plates, a dead beat escapement and maintaining or retaining power. The front plate is die-stamped with the Maker’s name, “Waltham Clock Co. U.S. A.” It is also numbered “1333” on the upper left. (Please note that this clock was photographed before we serviced the movement and polished the pendulum bob and weight.) The weight is sleeved in brass and descends along the right side of the case. The pendulum rod is wood and supports the brass bob. The bod is decorated with a ring turned design of a number of concentric circles. The motion of this pendulum can be viewed through the large glass door that is fitted to the front of the case. This case is constructed in mahogany and reatians an older if not an original finish. The painted zinc dial measures 13.25 inches across to the outside of the fitted wooden bezel or trim ring. It features Roman style hour numerals and the Maker’s name, “Waltham Clock Co.” is written in block lettering inside the time track. The dial is in excellent original condition.

This fine clock measures 42 inches long, 19 inches wide and 6.5 inches deep. It is inventory number 217076.
