    Hi, fobs, welcome to the message board. The company name is actually Junghans. Your clock is in the style commonly called a "box" clock, with Westminister chimes. These were very popular in the first half of the twentieth century. If you post a picture of the back of the movement, we may be able to date it more exactly.

    The first clock is a Junghans wall clock.

    The second one is from FHS.

    Dunno about the 3rd clock.

    Does that clear things up a bit?

    It's okay. But yes, the company's name was Junghans. Looks like a nice clock, btw.
