    Please help identify this clock

    Hi Steven, yes you are correct. The movement has the logo of the Swiss clock company, Buren. It seems to me that the movement has been replaced.

    Please help identify this clock

    Hello, we saw this clock in an auction and wondered where it came from. It appears to be a Victorian mantle/bracket clock with lacquered Chinoiserie decorations.

    Please help to identify this Angelus 8 Day pocket watch

    Just to offer closure but we had it confirmed from the manufacturer that this was indeed a fake. That was prior to receiving it. We were refunded. Thank you all for your input. As for the 8 day question we haven't tested that, sorry

    My Junghans Silentic Trivox clock keeps stopping after the alarm goes off

    Hi all, I have an issue with my Junghans Silentic Trivox alarm clock. It winds and goes well but it always stops after the alarm goes off (by this stage the alarm is wound down but the movement is still wound up). If I re-wind the the alarm the clock will start to tick again until the next time...

    Please identify this Chasseral pocket watch

    Hello, I recently saw this pocket watch and the brand written on the movement is "Chasseral". I tried to look it up but found very little information about it. One thing I did find out was that Chasseral was a line of Longines back in 1886 - 1889. However the records suggest that the words...

    Looking for Mainspring for Waltham Pocket Watch

    Thank you so much Richiec and Smudgy! I haven't had the time to re-measure the barrel yet but will do that very soon and post it here. I am not very sure if the mainspring has been previously replaced (it doesn't look like it has) but I did remember the T-end fits into the two holes on both...

    Schatz 400 Day Clock Suspension Spring Replacement Issue

    Thank you all for the replies! The clock was sitting on a writing desk last night and it ran for about 22 hours but it stopped this morning again. And yes, it does look like there is not enough over-swing. Also if memory serves the rotation of the pendulum was faster when the old spring was...

    Hello again, I gave it a shot and managed to get the clock going for an hour and then it stopped. I re-set the beat again and this time it ran for 45 minutes. Should I keep trying or does this indicate another issue? Thanks for your replies so far, they have been very helpful
