THIS SONORA 00 IS AN ALL-ORIGINAL FULLY RESTORED BEAUTY THAT YOU WILL TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN OWNING AND USING.

ANYONE WHO DESIRES SHOULD FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO DISCUSS DETAILS OF THE SONORA 00, AS WELL AS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE VARIOUS SONORAS IN GENERAL. THE GENEROUS 5 ½” SILVERED SONORA DIAL RING CAN BE VIEWED FROM ACROSS A LARGE ROOM, AND HAS LARGE AND CLEAR BLACK ARABIC NUMERALS AND SETH THOMAS LARGE SPADE CUT STEEL MINUTE AND HOUR HANDS. THE SILVERED DIAL IS EXCELLENT AND DISPLAYS VERY WELL, WITH JUST ENOUGH AGING TO AUTHENTICATE THAT IT IS TRULY AN ANTIQUE SONORA RATHER THAN A NEW SYNTHETIC CLOCK. THE WINDING HOLE NEAR THE “8” IS FOR THE HOUR COUNT CHIME; THE ONE NEAR THE “4” IS FOR THE TIME TRAIN. BOTH THE HOUR COUNT AND TIME TRAIN ARE HANDLED BY THE NO. 89AE MOVEMENT. ANOTHER HOLE AT THE “3” IS FOR WINDING THE QUARTER-HOUR WESTMINSTER CHIMES, HANDLED BY THE NO. 90H MOVEMENT. A SMALLER HOLE BELOW THE HAND SHAFT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DIAL IS FOR ACCESSING THE SLOW-FAST TIME ADJUSTMENT. A SLIDE LEVER ON THE SIDE OF THE CASE IS FOR CHIME-SILENT OPERATION. WHEN OPERATED, THE QUARTER HOUR CHIMES WILL BE SILENCED. THE 89AE MOVEMENT HANDLES THE TIME AND HOUR STRIKE FUNCTIONS AND THE 90H MOVEMENT HANDLES THE QUARTER HOUR FUNCTIONS. EACH QUARTER HOUR SEQUENCE IS SOUNDED ON THE RESONATED BELLS WITH RICH HARMONICS, TIMBRE AND LINGERING DECAY WHEN STRUCK. THE WESTMINSTER SEQUENCE IS SOUNDED ON THE NEST OF FOUR BELLS. THE HOUR COUNT IS SOUNDED AS A FULL BODIED MUSICAL NOTE ON RESONATED BELL NUMBER 4. PLEASE MAKE IT A POINT TO LISTEN AND CAREFULLY REVIEW THE ATTACHED SOUND FILES IN ORDER TO FULLY APPRECIATE WHAT OWNERS IN THE 1914 TIME FRAME EXPERIENCED WITH THEIR NEW AND, AT THE TIME, VERY EXPENSIVE SONORA 00 CLOCKS. ALSO INCLUDED IS THE CORRECT PENDULUM BOB AND A CORRECT BRASS DOUBLE ENDED KEY. CLOSE-UP VIEWS ARE SHOWN IN PHOTO 1 AND PHOTO 2. RESTORATION AND TECHNICAL DETAILS THE NEST OF SONORA BELLS THE RESTORATION PROCESS INCLUDED COMPLETE DISASSEMBLY AND INSPECTION OF EVERY ASPECT OF THE CLOCK. THE SONORA CHIME BELLS AND CHIME BLOCK ASSEMBLY WERE CAREFULLY DISASSEMBLED, CLEANED TO RESTORE THE RESONANT TIMBRE OF THE SONORA BELLS, AND EXAMINED FOR CONDITION TO INSURE THE ABSENCE OF HAIRLINE CRACKS, ETC. SUPERSIZE PHOTO 8 SHOWS THE DISASSEMBLED, CLEANED AND INSPECTED BELLS AND BELL NEST WITH SOUND CAVITIES THAT CAN BE SEEN ON THE END. ALSO PICTURED IS THE SONORA PATENT MARK THAT IS EMBOSSED ON THE WOODEN BELL NEST. CAREFUL INSPECTION OF THE BELLS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: · ONE HAIRLINE CRACK CAN CAUSE A SONORA BELL TO LOSE ALL TONE AND TIMBRE, AND THE BEGINNING OF A HAIRLINE WILL ALMOST ALWAYS GROW TO A FULL HAIRLINE CRACK. · IN ADDITION, OTHER ISSUES WITH CRACKED, BROKEN, OR DETERIORATED WOODEN AND PRESSED FELT BELL SPACERS, USED TO SEPARATE THE BELLS, WILL IMPACT THE SOUND, YET CANNOT BE DETECTED BY CASUAL INSPECTION. · THE ONLY WAY TO ASSURE YOURSELF OF NOT BECOMING VICTIM TO PROBLEMS IS VIA FULL AUTHENTICATION OF THE COMPONENTS, WHICH IS MY PLEDGE TO YOU, THE BUYER. MOVEMENTS - #89AE AND #90H BOTH THE 89AE TIME AND HOUR STRIKE MOVEMENT, AND THE 90H CHIME MOVEMENT WERE DISASSEMBLED, CLEANED WITH ULTRASONICS, INSPECTED IN DETAIL FOR CONDITION OF THE PIVOT BUSHINGS, GEAR TRAIN, AND ARBOR OR PIVOT ABNORMALITIES. OUT OF TOLERANCE BUSHINGS WERE REPLACED. EVERY OPERATIONAL ASPECT OF EACH MOVEMENT WAS ADDRESSED. THE MOVEMENTS WERE THEN REASSEMBLED AND PROPERLY LUBRICATED; BOTH MAINSPRINGS IN THE 89AE WERE REPLACED WITH NEW HIGHEST GRADE 120 INCH MAINSPRINGS. GOOD MAINSPRINGS ARE A CRITICAL INGREDIENT TO PROPER PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY. THE GREAT MAINSPRING IN THE 90H WAS REMOVED FROM ITS RETAINING BARREL, FULLY UNWOUND, PROPERLY CLEANED, INSPECTED, REWOUND, AND LUBRICATED WITH MAINSPRING INDUSTRUAL GRADE LUBRICANT. REPLACEMENT OF THE 136 INCH #90H MAINSPRING IS NEITHER RECOMMENDED NOR REQUIRED, AS LONG AS THE EXISTING MAINSPRING EXCEEDS SPECIFICATIONS, AS THIS ONE DOES. IMPORTANT: PAY SPECIAL NOTICE TO THREE CRITICAL COMPONENTS IN THE #90H CHIME MOVEMENT: THE GREAT WHEEL GEAR, THE SECOND WHEEL GEAR WITH PINION, AND THE CHIME DRUM THAT SYNCHRONIZES AND DRIVES THE CHIME HAMMERS. IF ANY OF THESE COMPONENTS IS ABOUT TO FAIL, IT MAY NOT BE OBVIOUS. WHEN IT OCCURS, THE COST TO REPAIR WILL GIVE YOU A JOLT, BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE IN SUPPLY CHANNELS; ANOTHER MOVEMENT WILL BE REQUIRED. THAT IS WHY I ALWAYS MAKE SURE THESE CRITICAL COMPONENTS ARE IN TOP CONDITION ON MY RESTORED SETH SONORA CLOCKS. I WILL BE GLAD TO FULLY EXPLAIN THESE CONSIDERATIONS AS WELL AS OTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS WHEN BUYING A SONORA – JUST EMAIL ME OR GIVE ME A CALL. MY EMAIL AND TELEPHONE NUMBER IS LISTED NEAR THE END. GOOD COUNSEL ON A CONTEMPLATED SONORA ACQUISITION WOULD BE: IF ONE ELECTS TO PURCHASE A SONORA OF UNKNOWN CONDITION – EVEN IF WORKING, BY ALL MEANS HOPE FOR THE BEST, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, BE PREPARED FOR PROBLEMS, SUBSEQUENT OPERATIONAL ISSUES AND EXTREME FRUSTRATION, AS WELL AS CONSIDERABLE EXPENSE. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE VERY BEST AND CLEAREST SONORA SOUND, THE OLD DETERIORATED LEATHER CHIME HAMMER TIPS WERE REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH DELRIN TIPS TO PRODUCE THE TRUE TIMBRE NOTES CHARACTERISTIC OF THE ORIGINAL SONORA BELLS. AN INSET IN SUPERSIZE PHOTO 7 SHOWS A CLOSE UP OF THE NEW HAMMER TIPS. JUST LISTEN TO THE ATTACHED SOUND FILES FOR AN ACCURATE RENDERING OF THE CLARITY, RESONANCE, TONE, AND RICH DECAY OF EACH NOTE STRUCK WHEN THE SONORA 00 CHIMES AND STRIKES THE HOUR. AFTER REASSAMBLY, APPROPRIATE ADJUSTMENTS FOR TIME, CHIME, HOUR STRIKE, SYNCHRONIZATION, PENDULUM RATE AND BEAT ERROR ETC. WERE ACCOMPLISHED USING MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC MEANS. AN EXTENDED BENCH RUN TEST FOLLOWED. SEVERAL PHOTOS OF THE RESTORATION WORK ARE PART OF THE PORTFOLIO. ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL INFORMATION: · AS PART OF THE TESTS AND ADJUSTMENTS PROCEDURES ON THE #89Z MOVEMENT, THE PENDULUM BEAT ERROR AND THE PENDULUM BEAT RATE ARE CHECKED AND SET - AN OBJECTIVE OF NEAR ZERO FOR BEAT ERROR IS DESIRED. THIS RESTORED 89AE MOVEMENT ADJUSTED TO ZERO ERROR AND STABILIZED AT ZERO ERROR. THIS ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE IS HIGHLIGHTED IN PHOTO 12. · FOR PENDULUM BEAT RATE, THE 89AE IS DESIGNED TO RUN AT 9,777 BEATS PER HOUR. THE RESTORED MOVEMENT EASILY HELD THE 9,777 BEAT RATE, MEANING THE TIME KEEPING WILL BE DEPENDABLE AND THE MOVEMENT WILL GIVE RELIABLE SERVICE. IN FACT, BOTH MOVEMENTS IN THE SONORA 00 WERE RESTORED TO SUPERIOR CONDITIION. WHILE THE BEAT RATE ADJUSTMENT PROCESS IS NOT PICTURED, IT IS SIMILAR IN SETUP TO PHOTO 12. · OBSERVE IN SUPERSIZE PHOTO 10 THAT THE PENDULUM SWING ARC IS A FULL 3 5/8 INCHES, VERY ROBUST AND EXCEEDING ORIGINAL SPECIFICATIONS. A HEALTY PENDULUM SWING IS A POSITIVE INDICATOR OF A HEALTY MOVEMENT THAT HAS VERY LITTLE FRICTION AND LOTS OF ENERGY. BEWARE OF A #89AE MOVEMENT WITH A PENDULUM AMPLITUDE OF 2 ½ INCHES OR LESS – A SIGN OF POOR MOVEMENT HEALTH. THE FULL RESTORATION SERVICE WORK ON THE SONORA MOVEMENTS AND SONORA BELLS ASSEMBLY, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE, IS AN $500 VALUE IN AND OF ITSELF. IF YOU PURCHASE A SETH THOMAS SONORA CLOCK OF UNKNOWN OPERATIONAL RELIABILITY, A TRIP THE CLOCK DOCTOR IS LIKELY AND COSTLY. WHY NOT PURCHASE ONE THAT YOU CAN DEPEND ON FROM THE GET GO!!! THE SONORA CHIME NO. 00 - 1914 WILL BE THE CENTER-PIECE OF A GRAND DECORATIVE SETTING, AND IT IS AN EXCELLENT INVESTMENT, BECAUSE ITS VALUE WILL CONTINUE TO APPRECIATE YEAR AFTER YEAR. THIS IS A MID/COMPACT SIZE CABINET SONORA CHIME CLOCK, SUITABLE FOR MANTLE, TABLE, OR SHELF DISPLAY - IDEAL FOR A GIFT, A MEMORABLE PRESENT FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL, YOUR PERSONAL USE, OR AS AN ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION.
