If you own one of the many 3 volt Self Winding Clock Co. or “Western Union” models with synchronizer coils, here’s a way to both power the clock and bring back nostalgic hourly synchronization.
The Model 1900GS Vintage Synchronizing Battery Kit is an excellent solution for powering and synchronizing self winding clocks. Replaceable alkaline cells are included, installed and ready to use in both canisters. Connections to the clock are made with high-quality nickel-plated knurled nuts.
With most 3 volt Style F self winding clock movements in good condition, this kit will run the clock for between 1.5 and 2 years (the synchronizer batteries last up to 5 years). When the internal alkaline flashlight batteries are spent, the top is easily removed and the readily available alkaline flashlight cells replaced for a few dollars.
The Model 1900G outputs a constant 3.3 volts (the voltage of two fresh No. 6 batteries in series) assuring a positive, reliable winding every time, throughout the life of the internal alkaline cells. The kit eliminates any question or doubt associated with providing safe, proper power to these historic clocks.
Our new Model 1900GS Synchronizing Battery Kit is calibrated to an accuracy of better than 0.5 minute per year. That’s about 2 seconds per month! It is the most accurate Western Union clock synchronizer available. You will be truly amazed at how accurate your 100 year old vintage self winding clock becomes when equipped with this nostalgic-looking product.
The kit comes with simple instructions and wire for the synchronizing coil, and takes only a minute or two to install. Once connected, depress the button (on the 1900S lid) at the top of the hour. This synchronizes the clock and assures precise synchronization every hour on the hour thereafter!
The entire kit is available for $139. All products from Ken’s Clock Clinic and KCC Scientific carry a 2 year replacement warranty. For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can order online at www.kensclockclinic.com
