  1. It looks to me like you have what is referred to as a cottage clock. They were made by many American clock makers. I'm guessing it is about 14 maybe 15" high? There could be a label on the back wall, under that green backing which I am almost certain is not original. I know Welch made some similar ones, but so did Seth Thomas, Ingraham, Gilbert, Sessions etc. Here is a pic of a similar styled Welch. The shape is the same, the dial is the same and the hands were the same if you compare the hour hands, this one has a replacement minute hand that is wrong, it's minute hand should be the same as yours. The pendulum is different as well but they made various models as did the other makers.

    Roger's Great 15000 Post Giveaway.

    CONGRATS ROGER! 15000 IS AN MILESTONE I WON'T LIVE LOG ENOUGH TO REACH...
  3. Take numbers 1 & 3, and lose the 4:30 sub dial altogether (it is superfluous). Then move the 9 o'clock sub dial to 6 o'clock & change the numerals to 14 16 18 20 22 24. Also the date could be bigger. Once that's all done, send me one of each to review. Oh yeah, lose the MILITARY STYLE bit as fast as you can!!!

    Omega Seamaster 300M size comparison

    @JonnyOldBoy Only in my dreams will I ever own a 300M but I have to admit, if I did, I likely would never take it off!!!

    Omega Seamaster 300M size comparison

    It would be the 41 or none for me... I'd have to agree with @Davey P, a Seamaster 300m as a beater???

    How long is acceptable

    I don't like to wait, but there is absolutely no excuse for 9 years!!!

    a tip ive heard

    Generally, if an idea seems to be too easy or too good to be true, then it usually is.... I too would be concerned about what it might do to the dial, lume etc...
