I have a Colonial clock that my parents acquired in the 1950s, the back says 1687 which I take to be the model number since I found it in a 1950s Colonial Catalogue. The catalogue lists the movement as 122, which I believe is a keywind movement. The movement in this clock is weight driven, I've attached a couple of photos. The back of the movement says "Colonial Mfg. Co. Germany 52mm" (I take the it 52mm refers to the pendulum length). Can anyone identify the maker/supplier and model number of this movement? Thanks.

Colonial Mfg. Co. purchased movements from many German movement companies; it is difficult to determine from whom it purchased a particular movement.

There is no correlation between Colonial Mfg. Co. model numbers stamped on the cases and movements. It sometimes offered multiple movement options with a case.

The clock appears to have traditional pull-up chain driven German movement.

See January 2014 NAWCC Watch and Clock Bulletin for my article on Colonial Mfg. Co.
