This is a very special clock of high quality and desirability. It is the famous Seth Thomas Mantel clock of the carriage clock styling. It has the high quality Hermle West German movment that has Westminster chimes. The chimes can be turned off if not desired. It plays the chimes every 15 minutes and it also plays the hour count each hour when the minute hand reaches 12.

The chimes also have a SILENT position so you can turn them off at night or turn them off completely. There are 3 winding arbors to wind up, one for the time, one for the 15 minute chimes and one for the hourly chimes. If you wind them fully, they will last for 8 days. Hence, this type of clock is called an 8-Day windup clock. Most people simply wind the mainsprings once per week on the same day of the week.

This clock can be turned backwards to reset the time. Doing such bypasses the chimes and will not hurt the clock. This is a nice feature of the quality Hermle movement.

This clock has been serviced and tested thoroughly and everything is working properly and it keeps good time. You can adjust the speed for your climate by following the instructions inside the back door of the cabinet.

This is truly a fine clock of high quality. The original winding key comes with the clock as shown in the photos.
