Hello Everybody, My name is Charlie and I've been collecting 400 day clocks for about 2 years, so bear with me concerning clock nomenclature...I just received a K & O clock, Ebay# 282332200538 (Pictures) under "Completed Listing"..I bought the clock due to its serial# 4129. I figure it's 1st year of production. The dial is porcelain. I bought another K & O a few months back with ser# 13056, but that one has a metal face with a correct K & O pendulum. I was wondering what the date of production is on the clock. The second question involves the pendulum which is not in the Horolovar Book. It looks similar to # 39, a Schatz from 1905, but the pendulum has a flair fitting like the Wurthner# 42 on the pendulum shaft. The surprise was when I flipped the pendulum upsidedown, there was a Patent# DRGM No 403658! I checked the Horolovar Book Patent Listings and the last patent number for Germany was a 200,000 number from 1912. The next number was a 1,400,000 number from 1952. So, does the patent number fit the 1st year of production of 1923?. I honestly think the pendulum is legit for the clock, but I also think that Schatz must have had a fit because of the similarity with their pendulum.....What do ya think?
