    Hi all,

    I have a friend who is interested in purchasing this GF clock here in GA. He is wanting to check it out for him. He shared these pictures with me, and I'm setting up with current owner to stop by.
    I have worked on one similar years ago, and I vaguely remember it being a Junghans tubular bell. It has 3 winding arbors on dial, then one aux arbor off to the side of case. Again, its been over 10 years or so, just long enough for my memory to forget maker and what the little aux movement did:???:??
    Anyone familiar with these?

    This is all pictures I have, and I know the pendulum Is a modern replacement.

    Thanks
    Dan

    Thanks that's exactly what I needed......this is definitely the same type clock. I thought it was a Junghans, and I do remember it being quite the chore to get to chime properly. Isn't that ironic, that the same question just came up the other day on same "unique" clock. I say unique cause, I wouldn't classify them as rare, other than you don't see them very often.

    Thanks so much!
