Hello,

I was out with my wife today and found this cuckoo clock that I am now trying to identify. I am looking for an aproximate age and the manufacturer of the clock itself. Here is all the info I have to help

Sticker on right hand side of case, outside "Thorens Movement, Edelweiss Happy Wanderer Made in Switserland"
this I believe relates to the maker of the music box inside.

top right corner of movement "synt-oil clock 859"

center of movement " A25-86" made in west germany

lower left of movement " no (o) jewels unadjusted

center bottom of movement " regula, with logo mark of tree"

bottom right of movement "BACHMAIER & KLEMMER"

1692176 is a number above the A25-86 also looks like another number above that that I can not see

no other markings that i can find hopefully the pictures will help. DSC_0019.jpg DSC_0020.jpg DSC_0021.jpg DSC_0022.jpg DSC_0025.jpg DSC_0026.jpg DSC_0027.jpg DSC_0028.jpg DSC_0031.jpg DSC_0032.jpg DSC_0033.jpg DSC_0034.jpg

Hi, N2C, welcome to the message board.
Your cuckoo movement was made in 1986, by Regula. The rest of the clock was made by BACHMAIER & KLEMMER, possibly in February, 1990. Looks like a pretty good clock. You should have fun restoring it.

Thanks Harold, I thought that B&K only made the actual parts of a movement, I did not know that they made entire clocks. so the case would be by them? Also, this is my first cuckoo restore project. I know I will need the top piece and the pendulum and weights. all else apears to work and move. any idea what a restore might run on something like this, just ballpark

Regula made the whole movement. The casemaker gets to have their name put on the movement if they order sufficient quantity to make it worth it for Regula to make up a stamp.
Considering what's missing I would expect about $150-200 should be about right to have it restored professionally. It's a one day movement. The movement numbers tell me that.
