I would still be curious what the movement looks like.
That is VERY helpful bobby2003 ! That is exactly the information that I needed. Now, I can make the trip to check out the clock in greater detail to make my purchase decision.Yes, a modern clock from the Hönes company, which was founded in 1950. I believe new2clocks is correct regarding the manufacture of the movement.
It will be useful to see the movement of this clock - I would not be surprised to see a Regula movement.
Dang, Willie! I thought I was the only one that referred to that genre of cuckoo clocks as "dead animals"! You're right about the chains - either they've been replaced or someone gave them a coat of wax.Dead animals would likely indicate pre ~1995 but the chains look new. You will find a common Regula movement inside. Weights are probably 1260gm but today the same movement would be shipped with 1500gm weights. The movement will have a single letter date code. This letter will give you the date the movement was made. This may or may not indicate the age of the case.
