• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

The gong is from the firm of Etzold & Popitz, a German retailer.

"JKS" could be the TM of Josef Koepfer & Soehne of Furtwangen, but I do not believe that they manufactured clocks. I could be wrong on this point. However, I cannot see any marks on the movement or the dial.

Can you provide better pictures of the "JKS"?

Regards.

EDIT: I now see the TM on the picture of the movement that you posted on another thread.

This one isn't marked but I can tell from the hands and the piece that holds the shaft in.

Yes, that's the logo of Josef Köpfer & Söhne. They did manufacture some clocks, but they also bought in a lot of movements and cased them. So this one is a Mauthe movement, as Tatyana says, with an Etzold & Popitz gong, the whole thing cased and sold by Köpfer.
