Good evening all. I have what I think is a German wall clock (perhaps Gustav Becker?) I can’t find any information about the stamp on the back of the movement. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

The trademark on your movement has been attributed to Uhrenfabrik Suevia GmbH of Sindelfingen, according to mikrolisk.

This firm started around 1920 and sold its clocks direct via commercial travelers rather than through trade wholesalers. The company had offices in Sindelfingen and Berlin.

The firm was still going strong in 1959 according to an advertisement of that time quoted by Schmid. (Courtesy JTD). Schmid (Hans-Heinrich Schmid) was the author of the Lexikon.

Regards.
