Waterbury Regulator No. 57

Catalog Description:

Waterbury Clock Co. "Regulator No. 57", ca 1906. A rare model for the last one we sold was in the January 2004 auction, 16 auctions ago. It went for over $4600. This clock is made of quartered oak, stands almost 50" high, and has been cleaned and polished. It is still smoky dark in the grooves and cracks but looks real nice. No visible repairs or new wood. There are several strips of ripple type moldings, turned spindles and finials, and many grooved designs and applied ornaments. It has a working lock, with a key. The weights, pendulum and stick, beat scale, dial, and hands, all look to be original to the clock. The dial is signed, and in very decent condition but does have chips around the screw heads. The 8 day, two weight movement is running, signed, is time only, has retaining power, dead beat escapement, and solid polished frames. It is mounted to the case on an iron back plate, similar to a pinwheel mount, only on a smaller scale. There is an old label inside but so worn it is not legible. The glass I cannot be sure about. The wood strips have been off and nailed back, the glass looks to be old, but who knows if it is original to the clock. Everyone I know uses old glass when restoring an old clock with broken or missing glass. LyWaterbury No. 571 and No. 568.
