    Post your JUNGHANS clocks here

    Hi, Picked up this Junghans clock from a thrift store few days back. Its runs for 17 days and is in good working condition. Looks like there has been an attempt to polish it at some point and it has caused some crackling effect on the dial and also on some parts of the body. Does the no 34 mean...

    8 day clock mainspring query.

    Yes Shutterbug, I am aware of that and a mainspring winder is definitely needed. I am planning of making one this month. Thank you

    8 day clock mainspring query.

    Hello, After observing the clock and making minor adjustments for several weeks, it is now running for 17 days and a few hrs on a full wind and is keeping accurate timing. I have compared it with a quartz clock and it is keeping up with it minute per minute for the entire 17 day period. I am...

    8 day clock mainspring query.

    I failed to mention earlier that, all testing of time gain and loss was done with out the hands and a gear wheel attached to the second hand mounted. This gear is stuck to the second hand. I have tried heating the components but failed to detach it. Since the dial (enamel or porcelain ?) is...

    8 day clock mainspring query.

    I have not seen many non 8 day clock except for 400 day clocks. This mechanism did seem unusual to me as it is only 10cm x 10cm. All components are small compared to normal 8 day clocks. It generally has a slim and delicate profile. I can take more pictures if it can help identify its true...

    Hello, Almost 2 yrs since my last post. Away from home and away from pending repairs. After regular look out found an interesting clock at a local charity shop in Sweden. It has no makers mark on it. I have opened it partially and taken some pictures. Hopefully some experienced members here...

    KOMA 400 days clock stops

    It looks stable now. Lowering the fork stopped the clock. So i got it to its original position. It is keeping up with a quartz clock near it. I have a pocket watch with a second hand. Using it I checked and found in a minute this koma ticks 4 times and tocks 4 times. Maybe one extra tick or...

    KOMA 400 days clock stops

    Managed to stick the hands. Used JB Weld. Result is not entirely satisfactory but will do for now. Making a new one will be a good idea in the future. Have fixed it and checking the time for accuracy at the movement. Last few days, I noticed that the clock gains an hr almost every hr. Strange...

    KOMA 400 days clock stops

    Hello, Sorry was busy with work and the clock was left alone for few days. The clock used to run for 10-12 hrs and stop. I just lowered the fork a bit and now it has been running for 4 days. The rotation has reduced noticeably. But it doesn't stop now. Fixed the minute hand today and it is...
