For Sale is our 1939 "99 WC" Sessions Westminster Chiming Mantle / Mantel eight day wind-up clock with key and pendulum. The clock has a soothing Tick-Tock, quarter hour chimes / hourly salutes (see the YouTube link below). The Sessions "99 WC" case has been carefully cleaned/refurbished; the door operates as designed and we attached a high quality felt pad to each foot to prevent scratching on delicate surfaces.
The case is hardwood with beautiful grain patterns and ornate trim around the base. Notice the incredible wood burl grain on the back door.
Under the face are beautiful multi-colored hardwood inserts creating a remarkable design. Very few Sessions clocks were made with this handcrafted option. The original tag on the inside of the door has the instructions for operations and date stamped October 1939 "8-39", as well as the model stamp "99 WC". The face has been cleaned, it has minor scuffs from normal usage.
It allows for adjustments to the time (fast and slow), silencing the chimes, and winding the time/chime arbors. The brass around the glass was cleaned and adds charm to the face. Glass is in excellent condition. The key is original for the clock. The pendulum bob/weight is original with the clock displaying the "S" for Sessions, in gold color.We installed a new pendulum extension rod for accurate time keeping. This clock is 21.5 inches wide, 10 inches tall, 5 inches deep and the face is 6.5 inches in diameter. We installed several new bushings at the worn/oblong pivot points and two new mainsprings supplied by Timesavers Inc.
The "99 WC" clock keeps time very well and has a very pleasant chime. We really appreciate the Sessions mechanical clocks for the workmanship and details.
This clock is heavy and well built with quality pre-WWII US made materials. Refurbished antique clocks are excellent wedding, holiday, graduation, anniversary, retirement, and birthday gifts. We then fill the box with foam peanuts and nestle the antique clock in the middle. We do the following to all of our clocks. Disassemble the entire clock and movement completely.
Install new US made parts on the movement if needed (main springs and pendulum suspension rods). Bush all worn pivot holes with high quality Bergeon bronze bushings as needed. Clean the entire movement using environment friendly cleaners. Clean the original dial careful not to alter its original condition. Clean bezel, parts and chime rods by hand.
