• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Pendulum leader was redone (lower hanger looks like taken from Junghans probably). Could you show the whole pendulum? Motif on the center of the dial should correspod to that on the pendulum bob.

    This is marriage, I'm afraid, but probably based on GB parts.

    I still have problems with searching since the forum engine was changed.:( Discussion started about the year 2011, when i published alarm clock with the SN 13888.

    Help please to identify clock

    I've seen a lot of Lenzkirch movements with removed logo. Most of them were from French lands. My colleagues and I suppose it was caused by an aversion to German products (or import bans) after the Franco-Prussian War which ended in 1871. France suffered a severe defeat... Did this clock come...

    Asking for a Lenzkirch model number

    Two versions of the model No 71 are in the 1903 catalog, too. There are differences between the pediments (crowns).

    There was no legal entity until 1936. In the year 1918 Austro - Hungarian Empire and its laws collapsed. Poland, after more than hundred years after its fall, rose again. Clock manufactory Johann Franke in Teschen was nationalized. Teschen became Cieszyn. Only buildings, machines and some old...

    P.S. Indeed, this is not classical Freischwinger - pendulum bob is not visible outside the case. These clocks were called Speisezimmeruhren - dining room clocks. Unfotunately, you have not posted good pictures of the whole case, but that's this model, I suppose: PPS. Hands are not original.

    Carl Gronemann was after the year 1898 the wholesaler only (probably). He was active until 1914 (again probably...). Most of the (popular) clocks he sold were produced by Johann Franke in Teschen (Cieszyn). They were in good cooperation. For instance, Gronemann was the owner of the patent for...

    Catalog from the year 1883 (as the whole in pdf above). There are some differences (hands, pendulum), but this is the same model IMO.

    Gustav Becker ID Help

    All chain/weight driven clocks produced in Freiburg had serial numbers, since 1925 until 1932 from 0 to ~ 5000. This model was in production until mid 30'.

    Gustav Becker ID Help

    As Royce said, your clock was made after the year 1932, not in Freiburg in Schlesien, but already in Schramberg factory by Junghans. In Braunau/Broumov branch chain weight driven floor clocks were not produced.

    German Is this really a Gustav Becker

    IMO this clock was produced after the year 1932, for the French market. This is not "Amerikaner" movement. Quarter chiming (and other higher quality) movements had serial numbers, until ~ 5000 in 1932.

    There are problems (whole Europe, Poland only?) with loading pictures from NAWCC for few days. JA is still unknown producer/wholeseller from Freiburg in Schlesien. H.H.
