Does anyone have any I idea how to date the Wuba clocks.

I know that they are later reproductions of the Zaan clocks from Holland. The movement has no markings and the case is marked on the back with number 374. I have seen the numbers up to 22038 online. I am thinking that this is a early one. About 1950?
Is there an accurate resource anywhere?181509181511181513

Greetings Masonic,

no, there is no reliable source about movements of Warmink/Holland. (= Idon´t know any source)

We know Warmink used after WW2 related movements of different German facturers and it is not shure, whether they made movements themselves.

Your clock in my oppinion is also late, I suppose of the 1970ies. And the movement I guess is a A.Schatz & Söhne, Triberg (Schatz went bankrupt 1986)

Hi Albra,

Thank you for the information.

I agree, the movement was made by Schatz. It is said, that Warmink made some of his own movements, but I too, doubt
that.
You may want to verify the plates measurements, which should be 107 x 90 mm, and 32 mm between plates.
Interesting to see that the movement was originally designed as a spring driven unit; see the horizontal slots for
the quick-out spring barrels...

I have heard, Warmink made own movements pre WW2, but I have never seen a Warmink without German movements (f.e. Urgos).
