    Just curious - Is this a "pre war", early version of a Regula 25?

    Customer brought in this small one day cuckoo clock and claimed that it is a "pre-war" cuckoo clock. I assume she meant WW 2 The movement is marked as a Regula but does not have the usual 25 - instead it has a 20 stamped into the back plate. It also says Demmler Imports and has G.M. 1705294 and...

    About when did Seth Thomas stop using the split plate 89 movement?

    This is the first Seth Thomas 89 I have seen with the split back plate. About when did they stop making these? thanks tom

    Ingraham Clock Needing Calendar Gears

    You are also missing the suspension spring post which goes in the hole under the center shaft. - Unless that is all on the back plate? But I do not have a photo of the calendar setup

    HAC ?? I thought this might be a HAC but it appears to have French pendulum sizing??

    I bought this for fun. I am not sure who the maker's mark is - I think it might be HAC?? but I also think the 5 5 stamp is the French pendulum length ?? The "crossed arrows" are not really clear and not like I usually see for a HAC. Does anyone recognize this? thanks tom

    Grand Father Clock from Berlin with winged logo of Kienzle?? with BSW threads ??

    I think the logo on this movement is one used by Kienzle? This clock was bought in Berlin during the Berlin air lift and brought back to the US by the father of the current owner. The pendulum rod is mostly wood, but the top has a steel rod attached that goes through the crutch foot and hangs...

    Wm Gilbert Time only with Calendar School House clock stamped 1820 question

    Perhaps the 1807 date on the dial might then represent a celebration of his birth - as in the beginning of his "time"? Being born in December 1806, he would probably have been baptized in early 1807.

    Wm Gilbert Time only with Calendar School House clock stamped 1820 question

    I also have a Gilbert with the 1807 on the dial. I was told that it represented some sort of "patent" date on the movement, but the explanation regarding the origin of the original company sounds more likely.

    Wm Gilbert Time only with Calendar School House clock stamped 1820 question

    That is interesting - but I think you were correct the first time. From the center of the hands to the bottom of the V is just over 18 inches. The clock is now running on time with a new suspension spring and hanger and the pendulum CG at 14 1/4 inches from the center of the hands and the...

    Wm Gilbert Time only with Calendar School House clock stamped 1820 question

    Thanks Steven - I first thought 1920 as well and the 18 was the pendulum length, but the owner clamed he was told 1820 - probably from looking at the stamps on the plates. Since Gilbert didn't really come into existence until 1860s, the 1820 date didn't make any sense. The 18 as pendulum...

    Wm Gilbert Time only with Calendar School House clock stamped 1820 question

    This Gilbert time only with calendar has a steel plate movement stamped 1820. The calendar works are between the plates on this one. The case has been badly lacquered and has a bit of damage, but the movement seems in good shape needing just a few bushings. The owner is wondering what war...

    Wondering about the maker of this clock - German I suspect VO on the dial

    Thanks so much - that is great history for the owner. This clock hung on the wall in his mother's house in Finland for the last 20 years not running. He knew none of the history. When his mother died two years ago it was shipped to him along with other items and arrived broken. It is now...

    Wondering about the maker of this clock - German I suspect VO on the dial

    Does anyone know the maker of this clock? It was shipped to a customer from Finland and arrived damaged. He has had it in a box for 2 years and decided to get it repaired. There is a 34 stamped into the wood frame of the door and the V in an O on the dial. The door hinges are stamped...

    Would like some help identifying this movement maker - time only weight driven

    Clock is finished. Keeping great time. It is going to my brother's home in San Diego. He and his wife love the simple lines without the finials, topper and bottom. I have no good place to put this in my house. He has a great alcove in his dining room with some old art and other items from...

    Would like some help identifying this movement maker - time only weight driven

    Thanks a lot Jim. I have seen pictures of some of these in black except for the inside back board. I have also seen a Model 05 all blond with a seconds bit, and another version with a seconds sweep hand. So far I have not figured out what model this is. I am also missing all the finials and...
