The movement will...

    Junghans wall clock with aftermarket hands

    Hello fellow clock enthusiasts, I acquired a beautiful-looking long Junghans wall clock that was supposedly in great shape. When I transported it home and set it on the wall I realized that the hands are most likely not original (they are too big and the minute hand was likely shortened by...
