According to mikrolisk, the pinecone with 'R' on the left and 'Co' on the right, is the trademark of Rominger & Cie., which was the first name of URGOS.
Thanks for looking but it looks like B and O, Not R and Co. The logo is very faint.According to mikrolisk, the pinecone with 'R' on the left and 'Co' on the right, is the trademark of Rominger & Cie., which was the first name of URGOS.
The firm was founded in Schwenningen in 1920 by Christian Haller, Johannes Jauch, Robert Papst (or Pabst), and Johannes Rominger as "Rominger & Cie GmbH." Rominger drops out in 1923, whereupon the firm name is changed to "Urgos" which stands for the "Uhren und Gongfabrik Schwenningen," also known as Haller, Jauch & Pabst. Courtesy Doug Stevenson.
Since this is an early trademark of URGOS, your clock may be older than the 1930s. Pictures may help in dating the clock.
Definitely the same logo, thanks. If you remember the name please let me know. Regards RoyI had such a mechanism. And I even knew who its producer was, but unfortunately I didn't write down the name
and I sold the mechanism. But it probably wasn't URGOS.
There is a B, and behind the cone it is probably a circle, not a letter.
Here are my photos.

Yahagi,So it is in the microlisc.
Only 'R' fits Rominger.
And here is the letter B ....
I found a movement with the 'R Co' pinecone trademark listed in mikrolisk.new2clocks
Very nice idea with that 'o' in 'C' ('Co.'). Sincere appreciation for ingenuity.
It could be like that, only from what I remember - 90% of it was rather a 'circle'. Back then, when I had the mechanism in my hand, that struck me because it didn't look like a letter. This is strange signature ...
As you probably already know - clocks from this period are not my passion. I remember looking at it closely and even figuring something out, but I didn't write down what. I don't know if the conclusions were good.
I do not know if in this case the 'microlisc' is right.
Yahagi, I am not stating that I am correct. The trademark on your movement has the 'B' and the mikrolisk trademark shows 'R'. The Lexikon confirms that the 'R' trademark belongs to Rominger & Cie. (Courtesy JTD)Maybe you're right. I don't insist, I don't have this mechanism anymore. I also have no better photos.
I thought there was a 'wheel' there, but maybe it was different.
The signature is unusual and very interesting.
From the front, this mechanism looked like this:
