Gentlemen

Need your help. The information I have is that this clock is from the 1920's. Would that be correct?
Could not find it on the web so If any of you has more detailed info (model, type, specifications, etc) pls share.
Thanks in advance for your time and cooperation.

Welcome to the forum.

We will need to see clear pictures of the back of the movement in order to let you you know when your clock was made.

I have requested a moderator to move your thread to the General Clocks category for better exposure. The Wood Movement category is for wood movements - not wood cases. :)

Regards.

Thank you new2clocks.
I don't have the clock with me. There is no other way to tell when it was made?
Thanks

Junghans date coded their movements, which is why I requested pictures of the back of the movement.

Perhaps someone has a Junghans catalog with your clock listed, but a catalog only proves that a clock was offered in a particular year. Any model was most likely offered for xxx years before and after the year of the catalog, so you would only be provided a guestimate that could cover a ten year period.

Regards.

Hi,

As new2clocks states, the date code on the movement will allow us to ascertain an exact date of manufacture, but the clock is certainly earlier than 1920’s and much closer to 1900, or a shade later.

Regards.

Thank you gentlemen. That's interesting once I did not think it was earlier than 1920.
I'll see if I can have a pic of the back so we can be sure

I agree with all the above, but there is something about the case that niggles me a bit. It looks brand new! Perhaps it is just the lighting or the camera angle, but it just looks pristine. The same goes for the brackets that hold the movement.

Perhaps it has been very highly 'restored' - and perhaps I am just wrong. I'd be interested to hear what others think.

I know it has been "cleaned" (wood and brass parts) but the case is not "that pristine".
I'll try to get detailed pics of the case as well.
Thank you

The stamp on the movement will date it. Junghans changed their stamps at different time periods.

Ok. I received the pics of the back of the movement. The only nbr I can see is 126. Don't know if it'll be enough to date the clock. Please let me know what you think once I'm curious as to the date (and other specifications you might have - model, type. etc). Thank you
JTD I also asked for some pics of the more "damaged" parts of the case.

The trademark on your movement was registered in 1891. Junghans commenced date coding their movements in 1901.

Your clock was made between 1891 and 1901.

Regards.

Thanks. Yes, I see now that it is not quite as pristine as it appeared in the earlier photos, but it's still pretty good for its age.

Thank you gentlemen for your help.
I thought the clock was from the 20's, and after all it's 20 or 30 years older than that... Wow!
Do you know where I could get more info on this clock model?
Thanks a lot for your cooperation.

Not sure. Don't even know if there are any specifications on this one (type, model, etc.)
Anything will be welcome.
Thanks

There is really not much more to tell you. This type of wall clock is often (wrongly) called a Vienna regulator. It is neither a regulator nor made in Vienna but that's what they get called.

An auction house might list it as 'Junghans spring driven regulator style wall clock'.

I don't think it has a model name - Junghans didn't use names much at that time.

Others may know more.

To add to what JTD said, your clock is time and strike - it does not chime.

It should be an 8 day movement, meaning it should run for 8 days on a full wind.

It has a faux (fake) compensating pendulum.

As mentioned earlier, if it had a model name, then the only way to find that name is from a catalog. There are folks who frequent these forums with Junghans catalogs, and should they have the catalog with your model, you will need to patient for them to read your thread and respond.

Regards.
