    this year´s horological birthday-present from my family is this little Georg Würthner (Plate1725 I think).I didn´t dare to show here before I had it running,and today is the day.The anchor pin has been a bit played with,but everything else is ok and in nice shape.After TLC and making a new SS it´s running nicely.Enjoy!

    Interesting clock! Never seen a bridge for holding the saddle like that. The guide says this is "sub midget" and a 14-day clock. Also, says that very few were made before they shut down making clocks. Nice, thought!

    Nice and unusual clock Burkhard! I've never seen one. I especially like the hour hand and the 4 ball pendulum with a gallery. Unique.

    So Kurt says repair guide calls it a sub miniature... how tall is it?

    the overall height is 14.5cm from base to the top of the dome,You see it here in comparison with a small Schatz and a midget Kern.Realy small! No leveling feet. I haven´t checked the duration ,it´s running since sunday (2 days).
