Seth Thomas Model #72 Westminster Chime Mantle Clock. I collect and restore any clock that specifically has the Seth Thomas 113 movement. I have literally overhauled 20 or 30 of these specific movements.
I think I can faithfully say that I completely understand the nuances of this particular movement probably more than most anyone else other than Seth Thomas himself. These 113 movements were and still are in my humble opinion the finest example of quality ever produced by Seth Thomas, bar none. In comparison the 113 movements are a full 5 lbs of overbuilt thick heavy plate Brass, the preceeding model was the Sonora's which were two movements and were not 5 lbs, the 124 movement that followed was only half the weight in Brass material weight. There just is no comparison for durability of design.The item "Seth Thomas Model #72 Westminster Chime Mantle Clock w 113 Movement" is in sale since Friday, February 5, 2021.
