My wife just got this clock for me this weekend for Father's day. She picked it up at a local sale and was told that it works well. She was not told any more about the clock though. I assume that it is a Vienna clock but I am not sure what that term (Vienna) really means. Is that a reference to a style of clock originally found in Austria and made by many makers, or is it a reference to a specific maker. The photos show that there are no markings on the movement or dial other than some number on the movement.
Any info that can be passed along on this clock would be appreciated. Also, the weight string is fishing string. Is that normal or is there a different material that the string would have been made from at the time of manufacture.
Quite a beautiful clock with the contract in dark and lighter wood colors. Look forward to getting it on the wall and ticking.
