HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS JULY 2019
Wm. Gilbert “Regulator No. 65”, ca. 1910. This 50-inch model came in oak or cherry and had a little brother (Regulator No. 64) that looks identical but is only 42 inches tall. This one has an old refinish on the oak case with a 10-inch paper dial, replaced long ago, and an inset seconds dial. Both dials show some staining and yellowing; the hands look correct. The 8-day time-only regulator movement is unsigned, running, and keeping time. It has a nickel bezel, a nickel-plated weight, and a nickel pendulum bob with some losses to the finish. The interior has been repainted black as it was originally. There is also a simple beat scale that matches the one shown in the catalog (page 141 of Ly’s Gilbert Clocks), and there is a nice label on the back. The door glass has been replaced. I can find no sales records for this model in the Antique Clocks Price Guide and we have not sold one in the last 5 years. Be the first one on your block to own this uncommon model! $500-$1000.
