American Mechanical American Mechanical hands for Seth Thomas, Sessions, Ansonia, Gilbert, Bristol, Ingram, Welch, New Haven and others. These are for American made mechanical movements produced prior to the end of WW2 because they did not produce many clocks after this time. The hands come in a couple minute hand mounting styles such as Oblong or Square. The hour hand just has a round hole every time.
The further back in time one goes with USA antiques movements there was less mass production. This means the older the clock the weirder things can get. So these hands are not going to fit every clock that is old and from America but they do cover the mass productions instead. Sometimes is it required for the older antiques to make something work from what is available. Such as soldering two hands together to make one good one that fits or filing a hole bigger with a needle file.
The design of our Maltese clock hands are specifically for American antique movements, including brands such as ST, Sessions, New Haven, Ansonia, Gilbert, and Waterbury. These hands are available with either a square or oblong hole to accommodate the mounting hole in the minute hand.
