    Help ID Coiled Gong Chiming WM clock

    Anyone have an approximate date when this would've been made? I'm going to guess 1910-1915?

    The fly should be adjusted so that both wings are completely parallel to each other. If the fly is unbalanced, it will cause all sorts of power issues. Another suggestion I'd make is when the movement jams up, try gently lifting the chime weight (taking the power out of the movement) and seeing...

    Help ID Coiled Gong Chiming WM clock

    There are still some differences though which make me scratch my head. Namely, the hammer arrangement and also the movement plate sizes. The one in my example has tall and narrow plates, while all of the PHS clocks I've seen have more square plates. All PHS clocks I've seen have also had the...

    Help ID Coiled Gong Chiming WM clock

    I think I figured it out, PHS. Phillip Haas and Sohne. They didn't make many WM chiming clocks. See below: https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/peacock-auctioneers/catalogue-id-whpav10682/lot-32503b32-c87a-46ca-95c8-abb800d109d5

    Does it only drag on the 3rd quarter hour when the chime train is running? Could be something going on with a ratio wheel connecting the chime train to the drum if it always occurs at that specific point.

    Help ID Coiled Gong Chiming WM clock

    Hi all, Just got this little WM chiming clock for what I think is a pretty good price. It's not labeled anywhere according to the seller, and the movement layout seems pretty unique. My first thought was Mauthe or Kienzle from the chime hammer arrangement with the large disk drum, but the rest...

    Looks to be in pretty good condition. The case will pop back to life when it's cleaned up. No rust noticeable is a great sign and likely means that the movement won't have any corrosion related problems. One of the bell hammers is raised in the photo - could be that the clock isn't simply wound...

    It’s a triple fusee clock with chimes only on bells. For being a fusee, I’d say the price would be a few thousand more than Sals’s estimate after it is restored.

    Please help find the missing part of this Kienzle 3/4 Westminster clock

    Hi Puimake. I've been busy with life events outside of clocks lately, so I hope you don't take offense to my tardy reply. I don't have any other photos/references to the movement besides the one older NAWCC post I linked to earlier, sorry. They're uncommon movements, but I'm sure if you post...

    Just when you think you've seen it all:

    Take a look at this unique French "sawmill" clock. The pendulum is actually inside of the sawmill stand instead of the attached to the movement. I'd imagine you'd start the clock by gently tugging the fake bandsaw blade.

    It will play the full Westminster, 4/4. See below for a video of one chiming with the same movement:

    See here for another movement very similar to yours: https://mb.nawcc.org/threads/unusual-embee.75767/

    Any real differences in the movements?

    A32 and B32 are date codes, although this would be one of the strange years that Junghans flipped the numbers of the date. A32 = First half of 1923 B32 = Second half of 1923
