Where Can You Find Antique Wall Clocks?


 

It is kind of sad to realize that when we want something that is built with the kind of craftsmanship that is designed to last seemingly forever, we usually end up looking to the past to find something of that quality because things just aren't made like they used to be. This is especially true with wall clocks, whether it is a vintage wood cuckoo clock, a Viennese grandfather time piece, or a keywound one from quality manufacturers such as Germany's Gustav Becker, Howard Miller or Seth Thomas, America's oldest clockmaker.

Sure, you can get any cheap little thing from the store to throw above your fireplace, but if you are interested in a vintage timepiece with westminster chimes that was created with care and with skill, you are going to want one of those vintage antique wall clocks

If you are interested in trying to find one of those unique old classics with Roman numerals for your own home, or perhaps as a gift for a friend or loved one that enjoys them, there are a few good places that you can try to find them. For starters, you can never go wrong with looking online because you can quite literally find anything on the Internet.

There are auction sites like ebay where you can find antique wall clocks to bid on, and there are also sites and stores that specialize in providing exactly these kinds of timepieces. Also, you just might get lucky and find an heirloom clock at a garage sale or flea market. You could even check out classifieds, online or in the paper, as well as check out the local antiquities shops.

Now, obviously, using the Internet just might be the best way to find the perfect timepiece, but there is one very large drawback, and that is the fact that you cannot see it with your own two eyes, or hold it in your hands to gauge the condition of it.

Due to these timepieces being antiques, they already have a high value, but you don't want to pay for something that is broken beyond repair, but not know it until you've already paid for it and received it. Just make sure to be extra careful with any online purchases, so as to avoid getting swindled.

It really isn't too difficult to find the kinds of antique wall clocks you are interested in getting a hold of as there are plenty of places to find them, but make sure that you get what you pay for.

Thomas Tompion - The Father of English Watchmaking (Part One)

By Mike Bond
As we've seen, the normal regulator has a mere four wheels in total, simply the Great Wheel meshing directly into the Centre Wheel, with the Third and Escape Wheels above that. Having such a large number of Intermediate Wheels would have increased friction and required considerably more power. The meshing of these gears must be absolutely perfect to negate friction and all possible hindrance.
