Seth Thomas Regulator No. 2 wall regulator in oak. VV38

This is a very popular clock. This model was arguably first made in the 1860s. This fine example was made sometime around 1910 and was marketed as a small regulator for use in Railroads, Schools, Fire Departments, Offices, etc.

This case is constructed in oak and retains an older finish. The weight driven movement is good quality. It features well finished brass plates that are that are shaped like a trapezoid, a Graham deadbeat escapement, and maintaining power. It is designed to beat eighty times per each minute. The front plate is die-stamped with the Maker's trademark and the number "77A." The movement is secured to a large iron mounting bracket which is attached to the backboard. This mounting bracket also supports the pendulum. The pendulum is constructed with a wood rod and a brass covered zinc bob. This clock is designed run for eight-days on a full wind. The dial is painted on tin and measures 12 inches across. This is the clocks original dial and as a result, it has some minor areas of wear. The lower door is fitted with glass. Through this one can view the side to side motion of the brass pendulum bob and the dissension of the brass covered lead weight over a weeks time.

This fine example was made circa 1920. It is inventory number VV-38.
