    Default German Necor Clocks

    My neighbor inherited a beautiful tambour mantle clock and I'm trying to find what I can about its history. Just below the 12, the word "Necor" is on the face, and the word "Germany" is just above the 6. The mechanism says "Overocean Clock Co. Germany" and "No (0) Jewels Unadjusted." There also appears to be a serial number on the mechanism, "68 341-020.

    The clock doesn't appear to be that old but it has a wonderful chime and is in excellent condition. The face is a beautiful art deco design. The fact that it says "Germany" instead of "West Germany," along with the art deco face, make me suspect it was manufactured between WWI and WWII.

    I doubt the clock is worth much (I saw one just like it on EBay for $40.) but, since it's such a nice clock, I'm curious to learn more about it. Any information about this clock or ideas where I could go for information would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi, mwillard, welcome to the message board. Going by your numbers, 68 341-020, your clock was made in 1968, and has a movement made by Hermle.
    Not all German products made after WW11 used the name West Germany to identify them.
