Hi there, I don’t have a lot of history on this clock but I am hoping someone here can help me find some information on it. We inherited it from my great grandmother when she passed in 2008 and I don’t know when she had acquired it originally. The face says “Urgos” and has small text that says “Westm, Whitt, Winch”

The small text presumably goes with a chime select lever as those are three tunes.Westminster, Whittington, and Winchester.

Thank you! I was able to find a date behind the face and movement 10-28-1971 and a movement number? UW 32/19
The date is most likely a date when the clock was repaired or serviced. The movement is German but the date is written the way it is done in the USA.

Was this date, scribed, scratched, or otherwise engraved on the back of the face of the clock or movement:???: if so it was most likely a mark left when it was serviced last...
