    Default Schnekenburger Wall Striking 400-Day Database

    To all who may have info,

    As many of you know I have been working for several years to build historically accurate databases for a number of early manufacturers of 400-Day and other torsion pendulum clocks. I am currently working on a database for the Schnekenburger full striking wall clocks. Anyone that may have one of these is welcome to add their clock to the information being compiled. When the data correlations are published in due course, your information will be completely anonymous so there will not be any potential security issues.

    The following information is needed on each clock. Please send me an email off-list ( pastimes@juno.com)with as much of this information as you can complete, and let me know if I can help to identify any particular part that is missing. Photos will be most welcome. Following is the list:

    1. Serial Number, including suffixes if any

    2. Horolover Plate Number (1303, 1504)

    3. Type of Escapement (Verge, duplex, detent)

    4. Logo description from backplate (Jahresuhre Sylvester, or RSM with Rose)

    5. Type of chime (bell, rod gong, spiral gong, etc)

    6. Strike release lever or pull (Yes/no, what type)

    7. Chime mounting (on Movement or Case)

    8. Type of case (vienna, altdeusch, freeswinger, etc) Refer to the 10th ed. Horolovar Repair Guide page 23/24 for examples.

    9. Material of case (solid hardwood & type, veneer over pine, etc)

    10.Dial size and description (diameter, one or 2-piece, Roman or Arabic numbers, any inscriptions)

    11.Type and style of hands (Vienna, moonpoise, spade, etc)

    12. Language of Patent Plaque and content (English, German, Other??)

    13.Pendulum adjusting device (separate or fixed to pendulum)

    14.Any other information

    Thanks in advance for any help or information you may have.

    Default Schnekenburger Wall Striking 400-Day Database (RE: John Hubby)

    Hi Mun,

    Good idea. Although initial indications are that Schnekenburger likely used a unique set of serial numbers for the striking torsion clocks, gathering serial number information from their other models could help to confirm the data for the strikers as well. All such info is welcome.
