The bell moves in the tower with the beatIf you take off the back cover and post a photo of the movement, it might be possible to identify the maker. It looks to be a good quality clock.
What do you mean by 'working bell'? It doesn't seem to be an alarm clock.
The heading of your thread will be somewhat confusing for future researchers - especially those who specialise in real tower clocks!
So need a little info have 0 knowledge of wind ups. I'm pretty sure the winder comes off turning counter clockwise but do you know how the time adjuster comes off to be able to remove back.I see, that's a nice little refinement.
This clock reminds me somewhat of the Le Petit Forgeron clocks made by the Swiss firm Didisheim Goldschmidt Fils. But this is a pure guess and may well be wrong. If you can show the movement we might know more.
Yes, the winder will come off as you suggest. The hand knob is probably a friction fit and will just pull off (may take a little effort).So need a little info have 0 knowledge of wind ups.

It does say Swiss made before the face
Cool got it. Here's the picsYes, the winder will come off as you suggest. The hand knob is probably a friction fit and will just pull off (may take a little effort).
Are there any little screws around the outside? If not, I suspect, though I am not sure, that the cover may also be held on by the two little legs. If it were me, I would remove the winder and hand knob and see if the cover comes off. If it doesn't, try removing the legs, which will probably unscrew.
Thanks, i was having no luck at all even with the solomax nameDeclaration: 1920s Solomax Watch Company Novelty Desk Clock has been declared an antique and was approved for sale on sellingantiques.co.uk.www.sellingantiques.co.uk
Yea i got nothing in my research. Glad bobby2003 was able to provide what he did. I love it. Even tho it's to small to see without my reading glasses lol.Not very much seems to be known about the Solomax Watch Company. It also does not seem clear whether or not they made their own movements or used other companies' movements and badged them with the Solomax name.
Others may know more.
Anyway, it is a very nice little clock and I am glad you were able to open the back.
