    Time again for Herr Harry Hase

    That part of the year is once again here where we post a photo of Herr Harry Hase, below. And comment on some aspect of his once-upon-a-time legendary being. It was of course Herr Harry Hase who, as the old Uhrmacher legend has it, shows up and winds (i.e. gets going, repairs) all of the...

    Spittler's American Clocks + a BTW

    Am aware that the current (March/April 2012) issue of the NAWCC's Watch & Clock Bulletin has a review of Tom Spittler's (2011) American Clocks, an Introduction. And that along with CLOCKS Magazine's publisher in Edinburgh, the NAWCC is also offering copies through the Gift Shop to Members and...

    You can't be serious, oder?

    Tom -- Are you really planning on having that "Click on the button to the left to view Clock Articles in our NAWCC On-line Encyclopedia" right up there on top in the "Header for Clocks General"? In the new improved version? How about waiting until there are more than 4, after two years, that...

    C. Bauer Swiss ad (1896)

    While searching for something else, ran across this C. Bauer 1896 ad (below) in a Swiss journal. Don't know if it's a new oldie or an old oldie :). Zepernick

    Seems a touch high --

    Know that horological books aren't always inexpensive. This one however does seem a touch overpriced: Amazon.com: Clocks of Shenandoah (9780961299200): Philip Whitney: Books Then again it's "used" so it might be the patina. Zepernick

    Rare woodie @ Uhrensammlung Kellenberger

    Know that some Message Boarders are also members of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Chronometrie (DGC), and will have seen a reference in the most recent Mitteilungen issue to this rare Holzräderuhr, on loan to the Uhrensammlung Kellenberg, However the clock deserves a broader gawking :). Go...

    Jahresuhren-Fabrik marks

    This, below, was posted to the Recent Acquisitions forum, but it seems more at home here at the Jahresuhren home. Regards, Zepernick ------------- Quote: Originally Posted by John Hubby Jay, the "double elephant" trademark did belong to Jahresuhren_Fabrik GmbH (the other company name was...

    Old Junghans truck

    It would be nice to have this old truck that belonged to Gebrüder Junghans. Could drive it to Regionals. Jürgen, who might well have driven one when still a kid, could also use it to transport motorcycles. Am told that it's probably a DMG (Daimler) DR 4-5d from around 1920. Would also...

    Two unknown Freiburg marks

    Even after the appearance of Hans-Heinrich Schmid's (2005) Lexikon der Deutschen Uhrenindustrie 1850-1980, and Andreas' excellent Mikrolisk site, there are still some German trademarks that haven't been identified. Two of them are evidently from Freiburg (i.e. the one in Schlesien) and are...

    American Wooden Movement Tall Clocks 1712-1835

    It's already been noted in the Horological Books section. But it's very much worth noting "up here" as well that Philip E. Morris' volume, American Wooden Movement Tall Clocks 1712-1835, is now available! Visit www.heritageparkpublishing.com for more information. Make sure to look at the "Sample...

    Glorious New (Old) Junghans Volume

    Victor Tang, an NAWCC Member in Singapore, has won international acclaim for his continuing series of old clock catalogues on CDs (see www.any400day.com). It's not just that he made extremely hard to find catalogues available by sharing his collection. He's made them available to anyone...

    Iron-front Vienna-style

    We've been helping an elderly NAWCC member (who does not have a computer) find information about a rather unusual Vienna-style wall clock. Here we're only concerned with the clock's cast iron "front" (the present movement is probably not original to the case) as shown in the photos below. Note...

    TTT + Chapter 168

    My copy of the December 2010 (Volume XV, Number 2) The Torsion Times arrived yesterday. And it struck me what a good bargain membership in The International 400-Day Clock Chapter 168 is. Indeed, no doubt shocking the Secretary, I've just sent my overdue-dues for 2010 off to him. And even paid...

    Happy New Year + Thanks

    Wanted to get this New Year wish "up" as some of our Message Boarders are already into New Year Eve's day :) Then too, following that old tradition of settling debts before the old year is out, wanted to especially thank first, our Moderators who put so much time and effort into the MB. And...

    Under the tree clocks...

    Thought it might be entertaining to start a virtual Christmas wish-list, that is, what would be nice find under the tree if you and your wife didn't need to exchange snow tires as Christmas presents :smile:. Spotted this clock model (below) in a 1903 advertisement in the Deutsche...

    Glassy 3D ID please

    On behalf of an Australian friend of a friend, am trying to get a better ID of the clock shown below. The American movement was identified courtesy of mods Harold and Steven as from Noah Pomeroy, from around 1856 or so. NP's movements are sometimes associated with Ingraham clocks. The...

    American mvmt (?) ID -- please

    Would be most grateful for help in identifying the movement in the photo below. I don't have the movement itself. If it's possible, an approximate dating would also be most welcome. That someone (uhuh) who knows that he doesn't really know thinks it looks "Gilbert-ish" won't be mentioned...
