I just thought I'd post this one for anyone interested. I believe it was made between 1909 & 1914, with a Jacques / Matthias Bauerle (please correct me if I'm wrong) 6-tube movement, and privately labeled for a local Minneapolis retailer.

A very nice Monastery grade clock from Bawo & Dotter (made by Bauerly, as you've said). I like how detailed the stamp is.

A very nice Monastery hall clock. You are correct that it uses a Jacques/Bäuerle movement and it was made anywhere between 1909-1914. Because the dial chime selector is marked 'Chime on Six Bells/Westminster', I would be inclined to think this is an earlier example. Later clocks had the selector updated to read the chime melody's proper name - Trinity. The tubular bells sound nice and resonant.

I agree that it’s an earlier movement because the winding spools sit quite horizontal on the face. I think your time frame is accurate. Looks like 2 tunes? Westminster and chime on six bells?

For future reference, how did you embed the YouTube video?

The way it finally worked was to right click on the video itself, and I think I pasted it on the post. It took a few shots, I kept getting talk over from another clip.
