    I have a large late 1980s wall clock in for repair. It has an 80 beat Jauch movement with a second hand. The Kieninger parts are like: pendulum hook, leader, crutch and maybe the escape wheel and auto beat pallet/clutch. Wondering if this was a last gasp effort by Jaunch to keep from going out of business? Does anyone know when Jauch closed its doors?
    Curious, Willie X

    The clock world there is very small there and over time designers went from one factory to the other. There are elements in Jauch, Urgos, and Kieninger that are similar.

    During hard times (especially the last few years), Gebr. Jauch KG did purchase and use movements from other makers to keep production afloat. I have not seen a Kieninger movement with the Jauch signature, only Hermles. Last known year of Jauch was 1986-1987.

    This one is a 1985. It's not a restamp. It's a Jauch movement with the listed Kieninger parts. Thanks for the dating.
