    Hi Petrus It is a very nice clock. Been inherited makes it more valuable. It would be difficult to precise any date on it. It has a Silesia movement, without serial numbers. My clock has the same movement, Silesia - P42. There are versions that these clocks were made in Freiburg, where they...

    Hi Tim I read at a German blog that, a regulator must be a clock that has an indicator for the seconds in the same dial, located below number 12, as I have seen in some Vienna clocks. There was an important discussion on this. But in the other hand, I have seen in some GB catalogues, that...

    Hi Tim Just a few comments. Dust cover is Staubschutz in German, so probably this is what you mean. Regarding the free swinger (Freischwinger), I read at a German blog of old clocks, that a clock like this strictly doesn't have a box with a glass cover for the lens. Based on this, your clock...

    Wow, what a wonderful story that you know about your clock. I heard about that polish group that build crowns for the clocks. As you can see in my avatar, my clock hasn't its crown. I made a model based on pics of similar models I found in the web and now I have to send it somewhere to make...

    Hi Melody This plaque has the name of the watchmaker: E.O Janssen. The others titles are the name of the city Wesermünde in the north of Germany and the State of Germany. Regards, Sergio

    Hi Talos It is a very beautiful clock. Probably this clock has a similar situation as mine. After an intense investigation in catalogues and pics on the web, until now, it couldn't identify the model and the year of built precisely. I have a GB Silesia P42 as you can see in my avatar. It has...

    Hi Tatyana The serial number I see on the back of the clock is 246221. I found in a list that this serial number belongs to clocks made before 1875. I don't know if the list that has these serial numbers, could correspond to Freiburg or Braunau. Could you please helping me to precise this...

    Hi Susan I was searching some pics of a clock as your and the pendulum has a ronded lens. Here is a pic of a similar clock that shows what I founded. In old GB catalogues I found the same lens. Regarding where to found a pendulum, I've seen web pages in Germany where they sell GB spare...

    Thanks Royce. Here is a pic that I've got from the dials and pendulum that I mentioned. For my dial it is a 7/8 that I don't know what does it mean. Regards, Sergio

    Hi Royce Congrats, it is a very nice clock and the wood case as well. Does it have pendulum? I've seen in a GB catalog that the dial was associated with a pendulum. As you can see in my avatar, my clock has the same dial as yours. In my case, the dial doesn't match with the pendulum as I've...

    Hi Tatyana This is a very good point and sounds viable. I thought it at the beginning because it is a very rare case, not found frequently in the web. But I disagree. Surfing in the web, I found pictures with identical wood cases in the US and Germany. There are 2 Freischwinger in Germany...

    Hi Tatyana I have a similar situation with my clock (that is in my avatar). The movement, watch dial and bells system are Gustav Becker, but not the the wood case. I found in the web the same model in Germany and the USA built with different woods. A model arrive to Chile where my grandfather...

    Hi Martin I'm not an expert, but I bought at Timesavers #38 suspension spring. They sold it as for Gustav Becker clocks. In my case this is the size my clock has. Regarding the date, your clock has a serial number that can identify when was built. As I know the clock that have a serial number...

    Hola Tatyana, thanks for your reply. I agree that the case of your Kienzle looks very similar. It has simpler lines in its design. Here are two pics more of the same model that I have at home.The first one is almost identically. It has a different clock face and the glass is different as well...

    Hi guys. Here is my GB regulator that has been in our family close to 90 years. I inherited from my grandfather. It is Silesia P. 42 regulator. The case seems to be very rare because I found only two of them in the web. I'll appreciate any information regarding the built year, code or whatever...
