Schatz Royal Mariner Ships Bell Wall Clock, retailed by Bailey Banks and Biddle, Philadelphia, PA. Case is 6" diameter, 3 1/2" deep, back flange is 7" diameter, with a 5" diameter dial. This is the earlier version of the Royal Mariner with the large ships bell movement. Circa 1950 - 1960. We did not restore the movement or case, for this reason it is very affordable. However I did lubricate all bearings and did clean the escapement. The marked Schatz movement is very clean, strong runner, and strikes the ships bell on an actual internal bell. NO problems with it running or timekeeping. See photos.

Basic Information You Should Know!

For those of you who are not familiar with the term "Restoration", this simply means cleaning, waxing original finishes and rebuilding the clock movement or preserving the integrity of any type of Antique to original condition WITHOUT ALTERATION. The more an item is original the more it is worth. The less original the less it is worth. If the clock movement is changed for whatever reason, the Antique Value is diminished to parts only and can not be valued as a complete original Antique. This in not just my opinion but a fact. Any good Appraiser or legitimate Antique Clock Dealer would be in total agreement. We are at a point in time where completely original Antique Clocks are very few and far between. In many cases it has been considered acceptable to restore an original dial, replace a clock hand, replace a broken door hinge, replace a broken wood pendulum rod, replace broken glass or repaint reverse painted glass. But NEVER replace an original clock movement.

Polishing the Brass will not alter the Antique Value of a clock if it was that way originally. In some cases it is best not to polish the brass.

Not everyone can afford or even appreciate this level of restoration. However, that is no reason to perpetuate the misrepresenting and dishonesty by other clock sellers. Especially those that are replacing clock faces with fake advertising dials, especially Rail Road Dials . Also there is a perfectly good reason why clock sellers will not show you the clock mechanism. #1 their clock is dirty, badly worn and probably not original to the case. #2 you could see additional holes in the back of the case where the original movement was mounted. if it is shown it does not look like my professionally restored clock movements. #3 The latest deception is that sellers are taking a photo of the movement with a bright flash giving the illusion that the brass movement is clean and bright, but you can still see the dirt and grease around the gear pivots as the penetrate the brass plates. Saying that a clock is running good does not mean it will keep accurate time or even run when you receive it.

Many internet clock sellers claim that they guarantee the clock runs, however when the clock arrives it will not run. When the seller is contacted he simply passes the buck to the shipper that it was damaged in shipping and you the buyer should file a insurance claim. This gets him off the hook for selling a clock that was not in good order to begin with. WARNING, If not packed properly the shipper will refuse the damage claim. Sound Familiar? I always have the habit of over packing with plenty of fresh materials to insure it arrives in good order. I am always here, unless out fly fishing, to provide assistance and answer questions. I know my clocks intimately and provide lengthy operation and care instructions to my clock buyers. My properly restored original Antique Clocks will provide years of uninterrupted service and pleasure. Hope this little tidbit of information aids you in making an intelligent decision on what to buy or NOT. All my clocks come with a correct fitting key, a set of instructions specific to this clock and the best packing in the business. I expect you to take the clock out of the box and have it up and running in a short time with a few exceptions and I am here to support you .
