    German GB Wall regulator

    I believe this dates around 1912. Does it have gong rods? When are you going to post pictures? Jim

    I've purchased several of these (originals) on eBay the past few years. I assume one could easily be machined (insert usual caveats here). Jim

    German GB Wall regulator

    I believe the serial number you posted is incorrect (extra character). Becker's high-end Braunau factory produced less than one million units between 1888-1925. In addition, all standard production sonnerie wall clocks were made in Braunau. I look forward to seeing pictures of your case and...

    The Chronology of Ownership

    I believe the clock was purchased prior to 1812, as Elisha Garfield was fighting in the Second War of American Independence in 1812. I believe the movement is 30 hour and plan on jumping into that in the Wood Movement Forum. I look forward to your participation. I think we shop at similar...

    I think Pat hit the nail on the head. Hamilton was my first thought, as well. Jim

    The Chronology of Ownership

    I'm a sucker for this sort of thing and spent several hours examining (and buying) items at the estate sale (oil paintings, handmade rugs, china, crystal, bronze statues, music boxes, etc.). Most included hand-written notes indicating they were owned by various members of the Garfield family...

    Pictures of the movement may help determine who made the clock.

    I was incorrect in assuming this is a Urgos or Kieninger movement. According to Clockguy's Gazo repair tech, my clock has a Jauch movement. Jim

    The Gazo Family Clock Factory of southern California existed from 1972 until 1989. During this period total production was approximately 10,000 units (53 different models), which makes them somewhat rare. Other than the excellent reference material provided on, there isn't much...

    French Clock Identification **Please Help**

    Owlman, We're not allowed to discuss value in this area of the MB, but there is What do you think it's worth? at the bottom of main page Forum listing for valuation questions. With that said, if you decide to sell the clock, I'll gladly give you what you paid if you'll deliver to Dallas...

    French Clock Identification **Please Help**

    Nice clock. The porcelain does appear to be in the style of Sevres. The inserts remind me of Haviland blanks finished and signed by small-shop artists. My guess on age is 1880-1895. Why is the hour pipe still in the dial plate? It appears the movement was incorrectly removed from the case...

    Nice! I’ve seen one in 35 years and it was trashed. Jim

    Hi, Pat! A reverse painted dial is a possibility. Hauser was influenced by French and Swiss clockmakers in the early years of his clockmaking journey. I'll examine the dial again in attempt to determine composition. Thanks for the reply. Jim The Three Bears of the Black Forest (Lenzkirch...

    I purchased the following Lenzkirch from the Lone Star Regional. It's the first Lenzkirch Gallery clock I've encountered. The case diameter is 16" and the 10" dial appears to be porcelain under glass. Jim
