Revere Chiming Clocks

The following pictures are from Revere Catalogs and/or actual Revere clocks that we have serviced or sold, plus additional pictures provided by viewers and from Tom's vast collection.
We have listed the clocks in numerical order by Model Number. Please note that we are continually working on these galleries with new clocks being added as we receive new information and pictures. If your clock is not pictured here it does not mean it doesn't exist! We probably haven't gotten it listed yet, or are unaware of it and do not have any pictures or documentation.

Make: Revere
Model Number: R-130
Date: 1929
Name: Gothic
Dial: Silvered with etched black numerals and intricate designs.
Details: This clock was the first generation of this design. Like most clocks from 1928 it used the noisy 60 rpm rotor which was changed to 1 rpm when the R-430 appeared.For obvious reasons this design is very popular with collectors, and these clocks generally bring a high premium in any condition. Restored examples, as shown on our website, are worth several hundred dollars.

Also compare the R-430 and GE versions of this model.

Details: This is one of the rare clocks Revere made and in a style unlike any other. The open front left most of these exposed to damage and only a few good examples exist today. The case was carved with scallops on the edge that were painted in black. Kim from Las Vegas had us bring hers back to life and it's a remarkable clock in excellent condition. We've never seen one on eBay and it would fetch a high price at any sale.

Date: 1930
Name: Ship Clock
Case: Mahogany with brass ornaments
Dial: Silvered with raised numerals.
Details: It's interesting to note that although this clock is a Ship's Bell clock, and in fact does come in a Ship's Bell version (R-548 at $74, it was advertised in the catalog (seen at right) with a Westminstyer chime at $89. Brass spokes around the dial and brass ornaments on either end.
We found the pictures of an actual Ship's Bell model online, so with this movement in it, it is technically an R-548. A very interesting and great looking clock.
