Hello,
First of all Stephen & Sandra :p ! Secondly, this is my own creation.
It isn't on my wall since I moved. It featured a 2 second period pendulum and a second hand.
It had a 30 hour power reserve. It was accurate to a few minutes a day. I ran it for over a month straight. It then fell into sporadic use because it took several minutes and a 130 turns of a turntable to wind the 15 pound weight up. Man was my arm sore. If and when I remount it I may use a cordless drill for winding. I have 2 other designs in various stages of completion. I also have a more efficient escapement design now. You can
See and hear it in action at:

I am trying to get my hands on this wonderful clock:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fb_OskJMQ3w :gold

Ok, time for another for another perve at Stephen & Sandra's clocks. :gold :p :gold
The above clock you are looking for is a Seiko musical clock. It just like the Rhythm clocks.

I checked the Seiko clocks home page and it looks like it is no longer made. :-(

http://www.seikoclocks.com/gallery.aspx?collectionId=7&StyleId=19

Might find one on the used market.....I looked on the bay and did not see the model you are looking for. But keep an eye out for it.....you never know.

Might want to look at the Rhythm models.....

This one, we both love. We stumbled onto it at a local antique store. It was picked up at an auction, from a home in a very affluent area of our town. It is a Ridgeway corner Grandfather with solid cherry cabinet and moon dial. Our foyer is modest, so the corner style cabinet is perfect. The original paperwork and receipt was in the bottom. It was originally sold in 1984 by our towns lone clock shop (where I bought the Sleigh above). I had them come out and service it, the owner was tickled to see it again (they had been doing regular service on it since new). It worked great for about four years, then started loosing a lot of time daily. The shop came out, pulled the movement and rebuilt it. She's dead solid now (unless I forget to wind it!) and hopefully good for another 25 years or so. The shop said that Ridgeway no longer sells solid cabinet Cherry clocks, they would just be too expensive. This one makes me smile every morning when I come downstairs.

I won a refurbished Waltham A-11 on Ebay. The seller mentioned he used "moebius oils" to lubricate this model cockpit clock. Not knowing anything about clock repair. a quick google showed me that's what is used. My collection is mostly quartz, but I did want this WWII era clock. It has moved ahead 20 seconds since I gave it a full wind 4 days ago and it is an 8 day clock. Pilots would set it as part of their checklist and this clock had to take on the changes in temperature from 135 F to -31 F.
