Bought this little Badische yesterday. Unusual that it winds from the back and has a bell underneath. Has anyone an idea of the age please?

A nice little clock. What is the knob on the far upper-left of the movement for?

Maybe 1890-1910 range?

I agree on the date, and closer to the latter part of that estimate. I presume the knob is for setting/stopping the alarm? It is unusually placed, usually you see it under the hand-set knob.

Regards.

Turns out it is for adjusting the strike instead of having to remove the hands or wind them round to get to the right time.
