Hey everybody, I just purchased another Herschede clock because I thought it would look good in the collection. As shown in the book, it is the 2015 model with redwood panels. This model is less expensive than the other Herschede hope it wasn’t from an old tree. There are the normal cobwebs in the clock.At a first glance, I see the serial number is 55155 (I like that). Overall the case is in nice shape and all bits and pieces seem to be there. The usual “alligator” texture has taken place. 6ADA7A43-86A0-4C39-96DC-46BB7260830E.jpeg 6C31DC39-D070-41C8-86B2-2343DC3DF3E9.jpeg
At the dial, I see the two screws are completely holding the dial in, which correctly exposes the levers and arbors. The dial is interestingly marked “Rost Jewelery Co Indianapolis”. Never heard of that but it sounds intriguing. 599E4FFA-EE88-40A0-9FDD-26CE86345C03.jpeg AC8F0E41-6799-4693-BFE8-37A58A48B07E.jpeg The only problem with the dial is that it doesn't latch fully like it’s supposed to.
Next is the movement: It looks in good condition overall. The “satisfying” pattern is present.

The movement is relatively clean but still needs a service which will be a (future) project. The pendulum is in great condition. The key has been lost by the seller but will come back to me if found.
One thing I noticed is how the dial mounts the “poles”. This seems to allow the poles to be screwed in and be adjusted. This is different from the other model ten where it was soldered on. Perhaps it was “tampered” with since the past owners said they “tinkered” around with it. 7AA86239-351F-45B9-8D5F-BB3F8CC4738E.jpeg E224FF92-7561-4BFC-A9AD-EEC328B98D70.jpeg
Any comment or thoughts are appreciated! Thanks!

Looks great in the photos. I find the dial bezel shafts were sometimes soldered in place so they would keep firm instead of slipping out. I've had to reinforce shafts that wouldn't hold in the bezel before. Any videos of the chimes?

Nice clock! Model 10's were always robust.

Excited to hear the video of it chiming!

You made a nice acquisition.

I just discovered the first and bad flaw. The time spring ratchet has a hairline crack right down the middle so it has no more tension. It seems the whole Stop work assembly let go and the spring slips when wound.

That's a bummer, but it is fixable. Is there any damage up the time train from the spring letting go?

I’m not sure how to examine the stop works. Do they let go along with the mainspring?
