    Here's one that arrived today. I've only recorded a few of these.

    It didn't have a nice trip.

    Dented base, broken crown screws, cracked dial, all new features.

    Chances are I won't find the correct pendulum for it. Most of those I've recorded have a JUF sized disc, but made from solid brass.

    I also need another 2" dial hour hand. :( This makes 6 hour hands I'm short.

    You're really finding some nice clocks! It's a shame the people on the other end don't think so. :banghead:

    Do you still have one of these in your collection?

    Kurt,

    My records have only yours, mine, and six other Haucks with that Urania dial. I would have sent mine back for the damage but I figured I wouldn't see another any time soon.

    Would it be too much to ask you to get me good measurements and pictures of you pendulum's disc and gallery? I figure I'll eventually have to make one. I think the JUF pendulum I pictured above is close, but I like to be authentic if possible.

    Eric

    Eric -

    What sort of measurements do you need? Specific pictures?

    Eric, it could have also had one of the first version of the Hauck 5-pillar gallery disc that had a solid turned brass disc. In my data right next to this one is the exact same clock with serial number 12714, with matching serial number No. 19 pendulum.
