I need a little help with this 8 Day cuckoo clock. This is a Albert Schwab Cuckoo Clock, Very Large (30" High x 18" Wide). It is made by Albert Schwab (Karlsruhe) with a Regula movement marked GM 1649000, 1674539, 1704075, 1705294 / Made in Germany & a code of 34/1/76 in the middle of the movement. There is no letter on the movement, that other Regula movements have, which can tell the date made. But I assume that the movement is 1976 from the 34/1/76 code. Can anyone confirm the age of this clock or explain the code 34/1/76 ?

Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated :)

Albert Schwab Co. was founded in 1966 and went out of business about 20 years later.

Please post a clear photo of the movement (back plate).

I did not want to remove the Cuckoo Clock from my wall (after I got it set up and running, perfectly), but I did find and attach a picture of a Regula 34/1/76 movement that looks exactly like the one in my clock. The only difference is the bottom of my movement says "Albert Schwab Karlsruhe".
