    Atmos II / Calibre II Dating

    Simon, I had mentioned in some of my previous posts that it is not possible to date an Atmos accurately based on the serial number without refering to the Jager LeCoultre factory record. This is because the Atmos were not produced consecutively based on. serial number. An Atmos with a higher...

    Lenzkirch with seconds-pendulum

    Oleg, You are correct. I made a slight typo error. I should have written " in the first quarter of the 1890s.". Thanks for the correction. Regards Mun C W

    Gothic 2-wt Lenzkirch

    This 2-wt Lenzkirch in a Gothic case is shown in the Lenzkirch catalog as Model 135. The back plate with serial number No 185932 is stamped with the early Lenzkirch logo which puts the date of manufacture around 1873 / 1874. Mun C W

    Vienna sold by J W Benson

    Lenzkirch is unlikely to be the maker of this clock as can be seen by comparing the back plate of this clock ( s/n 7646 ) with a Lenzkirch back plate shown below. The Lenzkirch back plate shows an early logo that was first introduced in 1873 based on information listed in a separate Lenzkirch...

    Vienna sold by J W Benson

    This ornate 2-weight Vienna was sold by J W Bensoon of London, however the movement has no name of the maker nor logo. I post a picture of the back plate in the hope the expert here can help to identify the maker and the year of maufacture. Thanks. Mun C W

    Post Your W. Würth & Co. Clocks Here

    I must make a sliight amendment to my above post. The clock was presented to a couple, Mr and Mrs Camillo Taussig, by Bowler and Burdick. According to Doug Stevenson's comment on a previous post of mine on this clock , Camillo Tausig was born in Hungary in about 1877, and died in Cleveland...

    Post Your W. Würth & Co. Clocks Here

    Hi Eric, I have an almost identical twin to your clock with s/n 7598, only three units before yours. The pendulum has a slightly larger gallery than yours most probably also made by JUF. The pendulum disc has an inscription showing that the clock was presented by Bowler and Burdick on 25th...

    Trademark ID

    The link below shows a Chinese made clock with the words TRADE MARK flanking the logo. However more commonly the Chinese worded version for Trade Mark were used instead of the English words. https://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?21467-Trademark-help Mun C W

    New (to me) 400 Day Clock

    Diana, The clock having back plate similar to Plate 1457 was made by Uhrenfabrik M Reiner. As Pendulum 35 was also made by Reiner it should be the correct one to go with your clock. There is no provision for a grove near the top of the of the pendulum to hold a clip. Compared with other...

    New (to me) 400 Day Clock

    Diana G, I have a similar clock as yours. Mine is complete with a suspension spring guard and pendulum as can be seen from the pictures below. The pendulum is very similar to Pendulum 86 shown in the Repair Guide. The clock has no provision for pendulum lock. Mun C W

    small four glass 400 day clock

    pahal, Pictures below show the wheel train of your clock and clock 837. Both the escape wheels have large diameter and 25 teeth each. The escape wheel teeth of your clock appear to be slightly shorter that that found in clock 837. It is not sure if that was the original condition or if they had...

    small four glass 400 day clock

    pahel, I believe the escape assembly of your clock is original. The reason it is not working properly is that, for some reason the eccentric nut in your movement had been previously shifted quite substantially. This can be seen in a side by side picture comparision of your clock's back plate...
