    Really nice stuff Steve.
    I think it is so neat to have those "little twins".

    Sorry Scottie, Im closer to Jackson, Mo. and can pick them up on a days notice. You know as well as me it would not be right to ship those precious little babies all alone!!!!

    Thanks Don.

    I don't know the model number of this one but it is a nice single weight. I have several more to post over the next few days.

    You are exactly right on the weight Scottie. It had a large weight on it and I had this smaller one sitting on top of the desk and just used it. I have an original Lenzkirch (small) weight on it now. Steve

    Hello,

    This is a Black Forest Lenzkich Regulator clock.
    The ornamental pieces (6 pieces)aren´t original.

    Very good sound and precision.

    Kind regards,
    Miguel

    This 1 weight belongs to a friend "Dana". She thought it was a Lenzkirch,however it is NOT marked. Her question is. Were all of the Lenzkirch marked ? Mike

    Hi Mike,

    In July of 2005 we had a quite a long discussion about unmarked Lenzkirch movements.

    You might find this interesting reading:

    Hi Mike,

    Give us a picture of the movement (back), the bracket and the pendulum and I will tell you if it is a Lenzkirch or not. The first 185,000 clocks that Lenzkirch made did not have a trade mark on them.

    Here is a model 325 single weight. The single weights are really sweet in my opinion. Steve

    Hello Steve,

    No offense intended, but do you have a source for the above statement. Just wanted to know for future reference.

    Thanks and best regards,

    No offence taken Richard.

    Our good friend, Karl Kochmann, put a book together titled, "Clock & Watch Trademark Index" which most of us own. He documented a joint advertisement between Lenzkirch and Gustav Becker warning the industry that there were forgeries of their clocks being made. Other companies were trying to cash in on the quality and popularity associated with Lenzkirch and Gustav Becker clocks.

    The advertisement showed the two trademarks used by Lenzkirch and the one that had been used by G. Becker up to this time. Lenzkirch shows their first trademark, which was the three or four letters, AUG or AUGL, written in script on the back plate. They showed that this first trademark was used between serial numbers 185,000 and 227,000. Their new trademark, which we see the most, was used from serial number 227,000 up to their last clock which was numbered over 2 million.

    The Lenzkirch first trademark was first used with production number 185,000. Their clocks made before serial number 185,000 were unmarked.

    This is also mentioned in the book, "150 Years Lenzkircher Clocks" that was produced by the Lenzkircher Clock Friends. They show the first trademark and explain that it was used between production numbers 185,000 and 227,000.

    By the way, I belong to the Lenzkircher Clock Friends and I'm sure more Americans are welcome to join.

    Hello Steve,

    Thank you for your very informative reply. I do have both of the referenced books and now remember the part about other manufacturers trying to take advantage of the Lenzkirch name etc. I will read that again today.

    Thanks,

    Richard T.

    Hi,
    Here's a Lenzkirch that I own. The movement has the following logo:



    The serial number is 696900. Does this serial number correspond to a manufacture date between 1885-1890 or post 1928?

    Here's the clock:




    Is there a model number associated with this clock?

    The case is oak, and I believe there are supposed to be finials on each top corner and below the skirt.

    Thanks
