    My parents bought this one a few years ago at a flea market in Germany. I fixed it and it's now perfectly operating.

    Can anyone help me identify the maker, year, movement type etc? The movement itself does not have any writings on it (at least not on the back of it.. can't remember regarding the front)

    Gawdzer,

    My eyes may be deceiving me, but there appears to be a trademark on the middle of the lowest area of the back of the movement.

    If you could provide a picture of what I am seeing as a trademark, we may be able to identify the maker for you.

    Regards.

    It has a rather unusual plate design. Somebody ought to be able to supply information.

    Judging from the style of the clock itself, I would dare say the years are between 1980 and 1989. Usually there are not any markings on some cuckoo clocks. If there are any signatures and/or trademarks, I/We like to have more of a closeup pictures of the clock to see them.

    TTC,
    I agree with you on looks alone but that puppy has an older larger movement with count wheel strike. This will (probably) move it back to the very late 1940s to very early 50s era. I will try to find that movement maker later today.

    The case also has some nice age to it.

    Regards.

    To me, the case and movement look a lot older than the 1980s. I agree with Willie X that it could very well be just post-war, even (possibly) a little earlier (I am looking at the carving). I like it - it is a change from the usual touristy chalets with brilliant colors.

    Others may be able to be more exact with the date(s).
