Research the history of your Ridgeway clock.

Step 1

Pull the Ridgeway grandfather clock away from the wall. Turn the clock so you can clearly see the back of the unit.

Step 2

Locate the plate on the back of the clock that contains its serial number and model number. Read the serial number carefully.

Step 3

Look at the first two digits of the Ridgeway grandfather clock. Those first two digits represent the year the clock was made; i.e., a clock that was manufactured in 1980 would have "80" as the first two digits of its serial number.
