    I didn't say anything about the value - that was the post before mine. But these clocks are hard to sell these days. JTD

    Finding out year and value

    Your clock is marked for Hans Winterhalder, Neustadt. This company was in business from 1919 to 1929, when it was liquidated and taken over by Junghans. JTD

    Help us date Lenzkirch clocks!

    Mantle Clock Door Bezel and Glass missing.

    I can vouch for Class Glass. I have used this firm many times and can say that Gary Long is extremely helpful and a very nice fellow. He can cut and fit any shape and size glass you want, as well as doing bevelling etc.. I have always been very happy with his work. JTD

    French Marble Clock

    I am not sure if you mean the size of the hole in the top of the suspension spring or the hole in the chops in which the suspension spring hangs. But you could try using a thicker pin. Having said that, I am not truly convinced that this is the cause of your oscillating pendulum. It might be...
