    I as of yet only do American 8 day mantle clocks,. I purchased this at an auction where I usually buy junkers to fix up. Only a few dollars. Looks as if there is no mechanism for a minute hand- hours only? The unit looks like could be vintage, not antique because of the modern looking stamp in the wood on the back. Made in spain, and maybe srammano, or gramano. None of the gears/shafts have pivots they are center drilled and spin on small wires that run between the plates. Amazingly it will run for a few when set-up.

    You are correct, not a real antique. Also these do not have a minute hand, and for good reason. They are usually pretty poor time keepers and having only an hour hand makes it less obvious. Every collection should probably have one but it won't be your go to clock the find the correct time of day.
