24 inches tall,
16 inches wide, 4.5 inches deep, 16 lbs weight
you have spent any time in a railroad station you would have come across
this jewel of a clock originally produced by Seth Thomas under the name
of “The 12 Inch Drop Octagon”. It was so commonly used that it was referred
to as “The Standard”
Like all of our
station clocks, The Standard is crafted from solid, quarter sawn white
oak, with an exquisite hand rubbed finish that brings out its rich warmth.
We wish that every one who reads this could hold the case themselves, and
run their hands across the smooth finish to truly appreciate our work.
But what about what you can't see? The joining methods we use are hidden,
you won't see v nails holding the octagon together because we use the Pistorious
system that drives the nail between the joint. Not only is it stronger,
but you can't see it! It's more expensive and time consuming but
we think it's worth it. And in 50 years, so will you.
The movement pictured
above is a German eight day, key wound movement that comes with our lifetime
warranty. It is manufactured by Hermle in Germany, one of the finest movement
makers in the world. You will really enjoy opening the solid brass
bezel once a week and winding the movement with the solid brass key.
Everything you touch on this clock is quality and once a week for the rest
of your life you'll experience that.
