Hello all,

I need help to identify this Junghans clock!
I've looked after identification elements, but all that i found was this two symbols: one is on the clock's face and the other on the back of the mechanism.

Welcome to the board.

You have already correctly identified you clock as a Junghans.

As far as dating it is concerned, on the back of the clock mechanism there may be a letter and number (for instance A 26 or something like that). If there is, we can date you clock but unfortunately the pictures you have posted only show the top part of the back plate. The dating code would be lower down.

Can you have another look and let us know?

Hello,
Thank you for the reply.

I've looked for letters or numbers but all that i found on the mechanism was this. When i removed the mechanism from the main frame i notticed something like 13 written on the piece that remained inside.
This clock is in my house for over 20 years, but it's possible that this it's a fake?

Thank you,
Isabela

It does not look fake to me at all, not sure on how old it is though.

It doesn't look new or fake to me. If I were guessing, I'd say WWII era or before.

I'd say before WWII to possibly 1900.
I don't think it would be before that.
Someplace there is a trademark list but I
can't seem to find it. It gives the range of
dates when particular trademarks were used
by each manufacture.
It looks like a model that would have been popular
in Europe.
It is clearly not a fake.
It could use a service and oiling.
It looks to have been over oiled sometime in the past.
This may make it need oiling.
When oil runs down, it wicks the oil out of the bushing.
It is a strike only movement.

Hi Isabela, one source has that trademark as being first registered in 1890 and re-registered in 1917 and again in 1928 which doesn't help much in dating your clock but I'd say it is early 1900s and pre-WWII.
