Looking for 4 ball Gustav Becker 400 day anniversary clock pendulum
That's not the easiest part to find loose. Are you missing a pendulum or do you just want the ball version?
Ya I’m sure of that. I bought a Gustav Becker bandstand clock online auction didn’t notice it had a made up four ball pendulum
What is the number on the movement?
Do you know if the bandstand clocks came with a dics pendulum. The number is 4946
I have a mother movement with matching pendulum it’s number is 876. It’s a disc pendulum. Could I use that movement would it be period correct
Some pictures of both clocks and pendulums would be great to see...including good pictures of the back plates. Gustav Becker offered a 4-ball pendulum beginning about 1915. Not sure what was the usual pendulum after that, but I suppose it might have been customer choice?? It might be difficult to know what pendulum might have been fitted. The only thing one would know for sure is if the disc pendulum had a matching serial number which indicates they left the factory together. I don't think all disc pendulums had serial numbers on them.
i will post some pictures as soon as i get it cleaned up. its all a part right now. if thats true that they didn't start using for ball pendulum untiil 1915 than this clock had a disc pendulum , Because this clocks serial numbers date it to 1850 to 1860. and i did google gustav becker bandstand clocks and it shows pictures with four ball pendulum and disc pendulums
If the serial number is simply 4946 and not preceding by leading zeroes, then it sounds like the clock was built very near the end of Gustav Becker production before Junghans took over the company. I think you found a website that references old production dates by Kochmann.
According to this post, your clock dates to likely in 1932.

That would be great
The other thing I need for that clock is the suspension that has the pointer for adjustment. They had that rigged to
