Standard Electric Time Co, 16 1/2” diameter step back wall clock, made in Springfield, Mass., circa 1910. The solid oak case was professionally refinished, the 100+ years of industrial dirt and dust was very unattractive. These industrial gallery clock were known as step back because the case flared back and mounted flush to the wall. This clock is 13” diameter on the front flaring back to 16 1/2”, has an 11” diameter original dial. The clock is 4” deep. It has a proper metal mounting bracket on the back. This type of clock is and has been the most desirable case design. Most of these clocks started life as a “slave” clock. They were made of brass, alloy and wood. We have several others listed for sale. They are called slave clocks because they only operated with electric impulses sent every minute from a larger wall hanging Master clock. Up to 20 salve clocks were wired in a series. They were used primarily in schools, factories, public buildings and train stations. These clocks could not operate on or keep time on their own. I converted this clock with a new high torque quartz movement. It will operate for one year with a single double A battery. Accuracy is to with a few seconds a month. The clean bold Arabic dial and black spade hands make this an clock easy to tell time. See photos.
