• 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!

    Sessions Wendell: any idea of the year(s) of manufacture? Other info?

    First and foremost, welcome to the forum. The instructions state to turn the minute hand clockwise to 12 and let it strike. If it is not striking the correct number of times to match the hour hand, then turn the minute hand counter clockwise to 9 and then clockwise to 12 and let it strike...

    Gustav Becker/Gustav Kraus

    Based on the research of John Hubby, " if the logo has the following: "Gustav Becker Freibug i Schl. Braunau i Boehm", plus the "Medaille d'Or", THAT clock was made in the Braunau works". Your serial number from Braunau works would indicate it was made in 1907. 1907: 421701 1908: 451601 Royce

    Need mainspring for W200 "foreign" movement

    Kent, You may wish to consider either a Merritt MS208 or Timesavers 14317. These are 53" in lieu of 48" but will probably work as that is only a bit over 1 additional wrap in your barrel. Royce

    Makers Mark Identification Please

    Douglas, According to the information provided by Charles Davis, an expert in Japanese clocks, your clock was made by Meiji. Your logo is what Charles identified as CO4B so that would imply the clock was made no earlier than 1921. Meiji, Nagoya, 1895 One of the largest long-time companies...

    Noisy English Rack striking

    Chippy2, potentially there is a minor adjustment you can make to eliminate this noise. In looking at the pre-cleaned movement picture, I note that this arm on the hammer lever is not resting on the other arm as there is a small space between them. After you cleaned and reassembled the...

    Junghans Wall Clock

    I spent some time going thru the Junghans Digital Achieves and the first time the W277 movement shows up was in 1934 and it was dimpled in the catalog. This should provide you with a "not earlier" date. Royce

    HWN tall case info?

    Jeff, I agree with Will 100% in that you will enjoy working on this well made movement. I have the same movement in one of my GF clocks that I restored and it is well built and extremely reliable and accurate. Enjoy. Royce

    Gustav Becker ID Help

    Possibly to tighten the range a bit, John Hubby also indicates that " It appears that from 1926 until the Freiburg factory was closed at the end of 1932, the Braunau factory was used to assemble non-serial numbered clocks for GB." Royce
