    1920's Urgos Hall Clock

    I just brought this home, and I believe the entire clock is by Urgos in the 1920's/30's. It's only 6'2" tall. The little bit I can find says they manufactured clocks and movements around this time, (both movement and chime block are Urgos) . Any information confirming either way would be good to...

    Fusee Sleleton Clock

    I just brought this one home today, resistance was futile. Now I'm needing to know anything anyone can tell me about it, age, possible maker, care and feeding? Are there any books on restoration? It also came with a base and domed glass cover, although I doubt that was original. Thanks, Mark

    Colonial 1482, No. 53 Movement

    I just brought this one home today, a Colonial model 1482 with #53 movement. I love the clock but the unfortunate part is that a previous owner refinished it in a sort of greenish walnut. The movement is marked Miller, Germany. Is there any information available on Miller?

    Kienzle Tall Case Clock

    I saw this on CL and really liked it, so I made an offer I didn't think the seller would take, and he did. Needless to say, I didn't waste any time picking it up. It's a Kienzle, about 8' tall. Can anyone give me a date of manufacture? And any other information on it. Thanks, Mark

    Waterbury Clock

    I bought this one yesterday when looking at other clocks. The ones I went to look at were way over priced, but I really liked this one, and bought before he put it out for sale. I'm hoping the 150.00 wasn't too much, but when you like one enough, it's worth what you're willing to pay. All that...

    I made another 5 hour round trip back to Duluth to pick up a Howard Miller & I never thought I'd buy one (never say never) I couldn't fit this in the car with the Herschede I got from him last weekend. Anyway, I'd like information on when Urgos made the UW03028 A movement sn/ 159295 (if that...

    Becker Roundhead Dating

    I just brought this one home today, the movement's very dirty and looks like it needs a bushing or two. I haven't done it before, but I guess I need to learn. Anyway, the only number where the serial number is, is 0. I'm hoping to get some info as to when it was made and why a serial number of...

    HAC "Cod Fishing" Statue Clock

    I just brought this one home. The same as a 2012 posting but with a complete statue. And missing the pendulum. Does anyone have information on Hamburg American selling movements for statue clocks, or did HAC make the complete clock? The 2012 posting gave an approximate date as 1904, is there...

    I just added this one to the accumulation. It was posted on Ebay as a Japy, but it doesn't have the trademark that's on others I've seen and worked on. So, is it a Japy, or who else made it, and when was it made? Thanks, Mark

    Waterbury No. 2 Banjo Clock

    I just bought this Banjo clock at an estate sale today. It's somewhat beatup and I can't find anything on one without painted glass, or all black. Did they make one like this, or was the glass replaced as I think it was? also, did they make one that's all black? I looks to me like it was painted...

    Kienzle Round Head Tall Case Clock

    Just made a 5 hour round trip to pick this up today, I couldn't pass it up for $350.00. Is there any way to date it? I'm guessing '20's or '30's but would like to get it closer if possible. Any idea who would use a clock with a 24 hour dial? This is the first I've seen. This is a youtube link...
