• 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!

    Jahresuhren-Fabrik Plate 1260 Variant

    Kurt, Thanks for your comments about the clock. You could be right about the placement of the elephants and logo. I haven't seen a picture of a plate 1260 like the one shown in the guide, and with the suspension guard in place. But I wonder if the factory just moved the markings at some...

    Jahresuhren-Fabrik Plate 1260 Variant

    Here are a couple of pictures of a clock that was found at auction a few years ago. It was mostly forgotten until yesterday when it was taken off the shelf, and it started running right away. Anyway, it appears to be similar to plate 1260, except the company name surrounds the second arbor...

    Here's another recently acquired Hamilton 926 that's marked "924". Once again, the s/n under the barrel bridge is the same as the s/n stamped onto the movement backplate: 948798.

    Some Jerome clocks for viewing

    Mike, A couple of pictures are attached with the gong base removed. There's a vertical dark stripe on that part of the label. If I can find a few other examples of this type of clock, I'll look for that stripe at the top of the label. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Some Jerome clocks for viewing

    Here's an interesting clock that was obtained on Jan. 3 at a local online auction. It's a 31-1/4" high Chauncey Jerome patent case (US Design Patent 883) with a type 2.162 eight day movement made by Ansonia Brass Co., as identified by Snowden Taylor on page 13 of his article "Eight-Day Brass...

    Post your Dutch wall clocks here

    Joe, Thanks for your comments about the Stoelklok. My knowledge of Dutch clocks is very limited, so I have a lot of reading to do. I didn't realize that it may be a Leewarder type, and don't know about the heavy metal brackets that you mentioned, but will investigate and find out. The Sellink...

    CHAINWHEEL NEEDED

    I have some n.o.s. chain wheels that someone gave to me several years ago. If you can provide a picture of what you have with dimensions and tooth count, I can see if any of mine match.

    Post your Dutch wall clocks here

    This is an old Stoelklok that was found on local Craigslist last week. Here in West Michigan there are a lot of people with Dutch ancestry. The seller told me that his parents emigrated from the Netherlands many years ago, bringing this clock with them to the USA. It's pretty dirty and dusty...

    Please Show the Most Recent Addition to Your Collection

    PatH, Thanks for your comments about the watch. I hadn't thought of the upper right symbol as being a letter "A", but maybe it is. I just thought it was a symbol of some kind. I looked for the name "T J Roberts" in a couple of Chicago city directories from that time period (before/after...

    Here's a hunting case pocket watch that was acquired at a nearby online auction earlier this week. The movement wasn't shown in the auction pictures. I bought it because it had an interesting case and dial, and hoping that the movement might be worthwhile. I found that the movement isn't...

    Here's an 8 day Waterbury carriage clock that has been modified to work with a furnace thermostat. The user would set the time of the alarm to approximately one hour before expected wake-up time, then manually turn the thermostat down at night to a lower temperature, and the clock would...

    Tower Clock Winding Cranks

    This is a crank, but I don't know if it's for a tower clock or not. It was found in a box lot from a long-time clock collector. It's made of cast iron and the hole for the winding arbor is 11/16" dia. Is this something you can use?

    Who collect's Watch Fob's

    Hello, I'm not a fob collector but found this in a junk box at a clock collector's estate sale about one month ago. The owner wasn't a watch person, but still it looks like it might be a watch fob. It's made of solid bronze and is 1.184" in diameter and 0.290" thick at the center. The slot is...
