You are looking at the Vintage Seth Thomas Helmsman 24-Hour Clock And Weather Barometer. The Seth Thomas Clock Company was founded by Seth Thomas and began producing clocks in 1813. Seth Thomas added his name to the clock’s dial, usually centered just above the number 6 on the dial. Clocks built through 1879 had no name on the dial, but during the years 1881 to 1888; 1913 through 1929; and 1929 forward, his name often appeared on the dial.
The Seth Thomas company started making weather barometers to match the clocks. On the face of the barometer, you will see many words such as Rain, Change, and Fair. The brand name Seth Thomas should always be found as also the words Weather Barometer.
On the bottom of the base, you will see a small piece of paper that has the CAT number-1606, the name Helmsman Base, Model: E537-007, and the name Seth Thomas.
We checked this clock out with the key and it is a working clock. This item does come with a key. You will see two places where you need to wind the clock. One is for the clock itself and the other one is for the chime.
This is perfect for anyone who is a collector of Seth Thomas clocks. This item would look great on a mantle or in someone’s office/den area.
