Anybody have a clue of the Maker & Date ?
The customer bought the clock, Now I get to get it running & cleaned up.
Came with the 1 weight, No pendulum, No leader, No chains, & she wants to clean up the dial a little.
Please some help needed.
I was thinking abought getting a New movement, dial, pendulum, weights.
Urgos, Keininger, Hermle.
From Klockit.
Can you talk me out of it with some encouragement.
Thank you
Lloyd

Looks like something from the Winterhalder family or Uhrenfabrik Mühlheim Müller & Co. - Germany, circa 1910s-1920s.
The Germans were prone to 'monkey see, monkey do' when it came to outlining chime movements so they all tend to look similar.

Adjustable fans for chime and strike tempo control is something you won't get on a modern movement.
Can't say much about the case besides it being one of those 'alternative' styles that looked different from the norm.
Any good photos of the chime rods? It may have a maker's signature.

Looks a nice clock - a shame to swap it if you can get or make the missing count wheel for the chime.

This clock uses the old fashioned rack & snail mechanism for the chimes, like an old style bracket or hall clock.
No countwheel to be found on this design. That will make its repairs easier having the movement complete.
New weights would be as far as I would go and I'd still suggest trying to restore the old weights first.
Dial looks like it could do with resilvering and ink for the numerals, minute ring.

Harmonie-Vollgong has been attributed to Uhrenfabrik Mühlheim-Müller, and, as chimeclockfan has suggested above, this may well be a movement from that maker..

I have not been able to find definitive evidence that UMM registered the trade name Harmonie-Vollgong, but I think this may very well be correct.

I have not worked with this movement personally, if no photos of the same movement turn up the best you can do
is find or construct a leader similar to what other German movements from the same period used. The exact shape is not
so crucial as long as it performs effectively.

I have pics of a later movement with such a gong and an additional signature MULLKO
