    Winterhalder Hoffmeier Gallery Clock - is it 'straight'?

    Well it's too late if the answer is no :>) I happen to like the clock just the same. My question relates to the overall size of this gallery clock and whether this WH movement could have been married to this case possibly long ago. The large 14" dial could also have been re-painted some time...

    Need HELP Identifyng Clock! German Movement & Potential Mis-Matched Case

    Got myself into the thick of it with this clock... but I do have the potential to return it since I couldn't fully examine it at the owner's home. I think the really dirty movement is Haller, but would like a confirmation based on the trademark. The clock case is another story. After pulling...

    Can Anyone Help to Identify the Approx. Age of this Unsigned German Movement?

    The prior owner of this German wall clock thought (or may have been told) that it dates to the 1920's. There is no Trademark or even a serial number. Can anyone help to confirm this just by examining a couple pics of this very dirty movement? Any input is appreciated!

At time of purchase it was advertised as having a hand carved replacement center crown that is a match to the original and a replaced backboard. Finials also appear to be replacements. Got to admit, it is...

    Ingraham Drop Octagon Calendar Clock - 10"

    This Ingraham Drop Octagon clock is part of a small lot of clocks I picked up very recently. I was wondering if any has ever come across this unusual incised numeral marking on the front of the case. It makes no sense to me and it's kind of a detraction to the appearance of this cute little...
