If you have questions, ask before bidding. 

Please look at my feedback rating and bid with confidence.  I do guarantee satisfaction, however, unless there is a defect that I have overlooked, shipping costs will not be refunded.

***IF you do have any issues, PLEASE notify me first so I can have an opportunity to remedy the situation before leaving feedback! I have a reputation of treating my customers right when given the opportunity!!!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I have a huge assortment of clock keys. If this isn't the brand, size or style you want- just ask.  I try to provide as accurate information as possible and will try to answer additional questions when asked, if possible.  Many items I sell are antique, vintage or used so they may have signs of use and therefore are selling “as is”. Some of them have surface tarnish or rust.

I have a large assortment of the following brands both new and vintage:

Ansonia             Bristols             Chelsea            E. Ingraham             E. N. Welch

Foxboro             Gilbert              New Haven       Popular Progress      Proudfit

Rockwell            Schatz             Sessions           Seth Thomas             Taylor

Vigor                  Waterbury



There are 2 DIFFERENT Sizing scales. 

[1] USA (NAWCC) [the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors] scale and [2] the European or Swiss Scale.  

The common denominator is measuring in millimeters (mm).  Some manufacturers have keys that are proprietary and only fit their clocks and some have shafts that are tapered.

Keep in mind:  A metal key doesn't stretch so it is better to error on the side of slightly large than too small.  Large probably will be a little loose but still work ok.  Too small will never work.
