    I believe it is by Uhrenfabrik Herr and was likely made in the 1950s or 1960s. The repair guide doesn't seem to show a plate similar to this with just Germany stamped on it.

    Thank you kurt, I am repairing the above clock for a friend but I actually own a Herr copy of the 1949 Schatz 400 day clock. I have read that Herr was employed by Schatz but left them in 1949 with a blueprint (or blueprints) notably of the 1949 model Schatz which he then proceeded to manufacture. The story goes that he made them all in 1951 and 1952 and that by 1954 he was bankrupt!

    Now that you mention it, the repair guide does indicate that Herr began production in 1951 and went bankrupt in 1954.
