Here's the old American favorite the Octagon short-drop "school house" Regulator. Tell time only, no bells or chimes. Ansonia regulators aren't often seen. It seems a little more deluxe than the Ingrahams, Gilberts and New Havens that you usually run into. Quite a beauty, from its rich rosewood case to the handsome wood dial bezel. As dependable as old glory, these little eight-day work-horses could be found in almost every public room a century ago. Non-strikers were especially favored in locations where silence was favored. If you are a light sleeper or even noise neurotic you'll appreciate the lack of clamor on the hour. Just the hypnotically-soothing cadence...tick...tick...tick of the clock.
The original eight-day spring wound movement has just been cleaned and oiled.
It is 24" tall, and 17" wide
