Vintage SESSIONS 8 DAY ALARM CLOCK Metal Wind-Up As-Is! - eBay (item 310063500852 end time Jul-05-08 18:35:06 PDT)
This vintage wind-up clock is marked, "Sessions 8 Day Alarm, Made in U.S.A." The base is marked, "Design Patent No. 75078."
It's striking-looking with a silver-color metal case set on a fluted pedestle, but I fear it's a fixer-upper. The back has a wind-up key for the time and one for the alarm. There's a knob to set the alarm and one to set the time. There's a slot where you adjust the clock speed.
I wound it up and it ticks and the minute hand seems to run fine, but the hour hand stays between the 4 and 5. I can't set the alarm time. When you pull the top button up, the alarm rings. There are scratches around the four nuts, suggesting the clock has been taken apart and tinkered with.
