    My new Late Biedermeier just arrived !!!

    One of my dreams was to own a late biedermeier regulator single weight. It's a 7" one piece dial, steel pendulum rod, solid brass bob on both sides and the only thing I see as probably not original is the glass (no waves or bubbles and almost too perfect) It is polished up and waxed the case to...

    Did Vienna Biedermeiers use beat scales?

    Something to ponder over morning coffee....screwball I was just wondering if it was uncommon for the individual clockmakers of the 1830-1870 era to use beat scales? On older vienna regulators from the biedermeier to late biedermeier era it seems it was hit or miss (or cases were refurbished...

    Finding "old VR Clock Hands"

    Hello all, I was just wondering a good source for nice Vienna Regulator clock hands (Junghans, Becker, GR, HAC, etc..size notwithstanding at this point) for our old clocks. I've seen so many clocks with wrong hands vs. the vintage style 1860-1900. The generic versions of vienna hands all look...

    It was asked of me if on German/Vienna regulator 2 winding hole clocks if it is always left keyhole is for the gong strike and the right is always for time. I said yes since all of mine (5) are that way but I paused on the answer since I'm not an expert. Ideas ???

    My unusual RA with mother of pearl..

    Just wanted to share... I couldn't resist this clock. About 25 years ago I found this in a clock shop that was going out of business (old man went into retirement). Unsigned movement but it is as accurate as my Beckers and Junghans. All I do is oil it every couple of years and she's good to...

    New Gustav Becker addition to my collection

    Just trying to figure out the model and yr produced and if it "correct". It has all the GB markings and "GB Silesia" on movement but no s/n. i know its approximately between 1900 and 1926 but thats a large swath of time. Any ideas....Enjoy the pictures
