Ok I went to an auction today to bid on one or 2 Junghans Bracket clocks. On was a A11 and the other a 42. I got neither. Simply more than I could afford. I didn't bid on the 42 as it was up first and wanted to make sure I could get the A11. But seeing what the first one went for I knew there was no way I would get it. One guy bought both Junghans and an unmarked bracket that said it was made in Wuttemburg. So we left the auction and went antiquing the rest of the day. And at the last place we were at there were some old clocks. I wasn't sure on any of them. When all of a sudden my wife says "Honey come look at this" I walk over and she has this little Junghans alarm clock in her hands. The key was off and partially stripped. And at $5 who could go wrong right? So we buy it and head to the car. My wife is trying to screw the key on and it won't go she says it's stripped. I ask for the clock and remembered that some are left hand threaded. It spun right on. I wound it up and it started ticking. It's close to keeping the correct time. I will have to adjust it. So anyone have any info on it? I would love to know when it was made. I don't think it is very old though. Syill made for a cool ending to the day.
