I have an”Anno 1750" clock. It was made in Germany. The dial is 3 and 1/4 inches in dia. The dial is porcelain and the pendulum hangs in front of the dial. There is a dark wood back about 26 inches long and 4 to 5 inches wide. There is a brass strap 1/8 inches thick by 3/8 inches wide and 20 inches long that has gear teeth on one side. The clock hangs on the brass strap and the weight of the clock is the power that runs the clock.
Does anyone know when they were made and number made? Any other information will be greatly appreciated. I have not been able to find any information on this clock.

Hi, Gerald. I have moved your thread to the Clock forum for better exposure. A few pictures will help us to identify what you have.harold bain, Member ch 33

Re: Anno clock (RE: harold bain)
It appears that you have a clock made by the Colonial Manufacturing Co. Zealand MI. They made the cases and the clocks had a German Movement. These clocks are called Gravity-Rack Clocks. The cases usually have a Case number and a serial number. I have been told that the first two digits of ther serial number is the date of manufacture. I have one that I believe was made in the 1970s.

Sometimes called a, "saw clock". I saw one. Some are old. Most are not.
