    value American German Modern My mother in law's clock values (Image Heavy)

    Hi Everyone! My mother in law is moving and is looking to get a ballpark value for some of her clocks. Some were made by her father's company in the 60's or 70's I'm thinking. Any ballpark information would be super helpful. I don't want her to be taken advantage of because she doesn't know...

    Clock Value Vienna Regulator

    Thank you. I had a feeling. There appear to be four thumb screws. Two that are vertical and two next to them that are horizontal. Does that sound right?

    Clock Value Vienna Regulator

    Thank you everyone. I went over to take more photos but I didn’t remove the movement. I expected to see tapered pins to remove the movement but I didn’t see any right away. I thought that I would ask you before I took it apart. Here are some more photos that I took. It has what looks like...

    No worries! yes, I understood that we needed to see the back of the movement. Not a bad idea to make sure it was clear though.

    Clock Value Vienna Regulator

    Hi Everyone, My mother in law has this Vienna regulator and asked me about it's value. I really don't know the market for these so I was hoping someone can help me with a ballpark figure. I don't think it's that valuable, but it is a nice looking clock. I haven't been to her house in a while...

    Oh! I see what you mean now. I don’t know that replacing the urn will increase the value enough to make it worth it. Plus if it doesn’t match well, it would probably hurt more than help;right?

    Thanks Bruce, I think I’ll start with the goop first and see how it comes out. I don’t necessarily need it to look brand new. What issue do you see with the base? The urn is t bent as it looked in the first two pictures.

    Here are two more photos. The angle was bad on the first ones. Do you think the finish can or should be improved? Or, is it best to keep as is?

    Hi Everyone, Can someone help me with the general value range for these clocks? If you know the model, that would be very helpful also. It is my mother in law's and I am going to overhaul it for her, but she was curious about how much it would generally be worth. Thanks!

    Rack and Snail running away. Alignment issue?

    Hey Bruce, When the clock goes in to warning, it allows the rack to fall the whole way down before it chimes. I rotated the gathering pallet a tiny bit to allow the rack to fall. that seems to have fixed the issue. It still chimes too fast, but my friend isn't as concerned with that part.

    Rack and Snail running away. Alignment issue?

    Ok, everything is good to go. Thanks! I adjusted the gathering pallet so It would allow the rack to fall all the way down. Then the minute hand just needed to be adjusted. Thank you very much.

    Rack and Snail running away. Alignment issue?

    I was thinking something similar. I just popped off the gathering pallet and moved it so that the rack can fall all the way. Looks like it fixed this issue. the only issue that I see now is that the warning happens at 10 minutes to strike/chime and the strike/chime is five minutes early.
