    It has a glass door for the back . If anyone has some info of the maker, it looks like G.Stutterheim , it is truly appreciated. Looking on line I couldn’t find anything.
    Thank you

    There is more written on the dial. What is it? It might give a clue from where the clock comes. The glass door in the back is a bit strange for an otherwise open case.

    It’s currently being shipped to me. When it arrives I’ll post a photo of the writing below the hands post.
    Thanks for noticing the script.

    Oh, I see. This is more a back cover of the movement. I expected a glass door related to the case. The movement looks similar to French movements, but then -not. It will be interesting what the script says. Dutch? Or maybe Austrian?

    If it is Hagae, that might be the locative for the Latin Haga (or Haga Comitis). English speakers call it the Hague. Thus, perhaps a clock from the Netherlands, at least sold there; Stutterheim (if that is what it is) might be a retailer.

    Thanks for helping

    This is very likely Dutch. Stutterheim appears to be a name not uncommon in the Netherlands. There is even a town with the name Stutterheim in South Africa, a former Dutch colony.

    Thank you
    I’ve found one other clock that had Hagae on the dial and is attributed to being Dutch
