• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Black floral Kundo standard

This is one of four clocks I picked up in one day back in May, as mentioned here.

It's a standard Kundo with black trim and floral decoration. I believe it's plate 1377 which the book dates at 1951 but it has the below-plate suspension lock (which I understand to be post-1954) and is in almost-pristine condition so I suspect it might be quite a bit newer than that.

I haven't serviced it as it ran immediately with no adjustment.

Andy, lovely clock. Actually, if the suspension guard is original equipment your clock was not earlier than the mid-1960's when Kundo and others started replacing metal with plastic in non-structural parts. Could be as late as the mid-1970's.

Thanks John, I didn't know about the plastic dating. I'll add that to my notes.
