L3,

The front of the movement might supply some information, mostly of the mechanics of the movement. This may help date the clock.

Regards.

I did check the best I can without removing the front face display.
Again, did not see anything wrote there.

i'll try to make a video to let you see.

I don't think my clock is worthy to be here, but it's a Junghans.
This clock I got a week ago. The case is in restorable condition, but is missing some parts.
I'm in the process of cleaning at this time.
The movement has no markings at all, just the logo. According to a chart here this logo was first introduced in 1890 but does not say when it was no longer used.
I hope some one here could identify it.

Beautiful!

Your Movement is just like mine. There is the logo introduced in 1890 but nothing else.

Thanks, L3G10N.
Yes, that's all that mine has, the logo.
Can you share a picture of your case? I'm trying to restore mine, and replace what's missing.
I have another post under "general clocks" also.

I mean, I only have the logo on mine too. This is the only similitude between you and me :p
Your movement is way different than mine.

I've posted pictures of mine in the page 23.
Few post before this one.

I have read through this entire thread and seen nothing like this. Clock work is stamped A07. The bell on top confuses me. Only Junghans I see with top bells are later alarm clocks. The clock is in very good shape except for missing lower case pieces ( hoping the man I got this from will find them in some boxes he has). The dial faces seems to be celluloid with the common yellowing. This has 2 winding stems in the rear of the movement. The one on the right winds the clock (clock runs and keeps time well) and I assume the one on the left is for the bell. The right wind seems to have been over wound and doesn't turn. Not a clock man. I have found, on many pocket watches I have, that there is usually a release point but don't want to mess with something I'm not familiar with. The case is about 7 1/2" tall, 6" wide and 4" deep. The bell is 3" tall and about 2 " wide. The sides have glass panels to expose the clock works. There is a lever projecting from under the bell that I guess turns the bell on or off.
Any information anyone might have would be of great help. I will be taking it in soon for a through cleaning. Thank you.
Oh, wanted to add, I don't know what the small dial in the clock work is for, guessing it has something to do with the bell/

Hi, Dale, welcome to the message board. You have a nice early alarm clock. The dial at the back is for setting the time for the alarm to sound.

Hi, here it goes my first contribution to this forum.
A Junghans Vienna Regulator walnut wall clock, which I've a few info about it, except the Junghans star at the Dial & Movement without any reference marked in the movement like A or BXX. So, I presume was made between 1890 and 1900, as Junghans started to marked movements after 1902. I have read through this entire thread and seen nothing like this. Could please someone help me to identify this wall clock? Is my date assumption correct?
Thanks

Hi, and here it goes my second small contribution into this forum.
A Junghans Wurttemberg wall clock marked B21 in the movement (second half 1921) and 104½. I have read through this entire thread and seen nothing like this. Could please someone help me to identify this wall clock?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the board Pedro.

I don't know that there is very much to add to what you already know. You have the date. This type of clock is extremely common and is often called a German Box Clock. They were made in their thousands by most of the large German makers. Yours looks to be in nice condition and has bevelled glass panels, which adds quality. Whether this clock actually had a model name I do not know, but those who have the Junghans books may be able to tell more about his one.

Hello All
This is my first post to the forum.
I have a Junghans bracket clock and thanks mainly to this MB thread I have determined that it was made in the first half of 1907 (A07), and it is a Junghans 103 movement with 140 BPM.
I have not been able to find the name of the clock or a catalogue reference for it.
If any body has any further information on this clock, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Richard, welcome to the NAWCC.

You have fine example of one of Junghans earlier Westminster movement clocks. I presume that their earlier Westminster clocks had lantern pinions throughout the movement, where then they later transitioned to using a mix of leaf pinons and lantern pinions. I really like the style of the case but I do not know catalog information in regards to it.

Enjoy it! I love the sounds of my Junghans clocks.

Hello
Early in this thread there were some people with Junghans catalogues for the 1905-1910; I would like to get in touch with them to see if they can identify the name of this clock. How would I do this?

Hi Guys any help with the attached clock would be greatly appreciated. It's stamped Junghans but I'm hoping that the case does not match anything Junghans as it was reportedly customised (it's also been white rubbed). I'd be interested to know more about the movement, I couldn't see any numbers but I'm not too keen to remove it from the case. Many thanks

Greetings all. My friend and co-worker purchased this Junghans in England in the 1990's. After several months in contact with Junghans he was eventually told the clock was from the 1920's - 30's. I don't believe that is the case but I can't stop thinking the clock has been altered. If it has someone did a very nice job. Can you folks please help the both of us. I will see if I can get the pictures on here.

My apologies. I am new to your site and as you can see computer illiterate. I have not seen the clock, only the pictures that were e-mailed to me in a Word document. Is anyone able to open it and view the pictures? I am trying, without much luck, to convert them to something more user friendly. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. I'll keep trying. Thank you

Hello Teresa,

Like you I am new to the NAWCC site but you are much better at posting pictures than I am.

Beautiful clock!
I don't know much about Junghans so I can't really help with its identification or time line. I am very glad you were there to save it. A clock like that going to the dump would have been a shame.

Ontime, thanks for posting. However this thread is for Gustav Becker clocks, I am moving your post to the Junghans thread where you should be able to get the info about your case.

Here's my first and only Junghans. Not sure what it is yet, but it's by K. C. Clock Co. When it's delivered I can post better pictures. First concern is the pendulum, which is missing. If someone can tell me what the specs are or where to buy one that would be great!

See my post #1179 above. I'm looking for a Junghans pendulum .
Could one of you Junghans experts tell me what weight and size the pendulum should be for this clock? All I have so far are these pictures. But I'm fairly certain it should look like this one. I've posted my request in parts wanted, but so far no response. Timesavers has several german bobs, but I need to know the size and weight.

Got a better photo of the movement, Looks like Junghans B13, 1913? Other than that I still don't know what I have here. But I am sure that I still need the pendulum. Junghans K C clock 4.jpg

Hello, my first post here. I didn't know about this website until my clock repairman told me about it. Today I received my latest purchase in the mail, a unique (to me at least) Junghans clock. Not even sure what to call it. Globe? Please educate me! I was going to pay in the "What's it worth"forum but it said I didn't have rights to post there. Anyone know why? At any rate, I posted a picture of the clock, one of the movement and a close up of the markings. Nothing on the works matches anything in the list at the top of this forum. Thanks for any feedback!

Hi, this is my first post here.

I picked this up at an estate auction recently. The movement is dated A12 and has an additional 13 marking on it. I've looked on-line and searched forum sites but can't find a match for this case, can anyone help, please?

Hi could I ask for any information anyone can tell me on the Junghans clock I have. I have looked all over but not seen one that looks like this one. The movement marks are 52B and I think W278 is model number ? Thanks everyone

HI; I am also new to the forum. I have a few Junghans wall clocks and I do know somethings (not much) Prior to 1880 Junghans did not do much in the way of markings. From 1890 to 1900 they had their name within a star stamaped into the back plate. After this time, the began placing dates within a 6 mo. period. EG; A05 designated that the unit was made in the first 6 mos of 1905. If a "B" was the first character, such as B05 it was made in the last 6 mos. of 1905 ETC.

This is a clock that was handed down several times from my relatives in Austria. I know that this is a Junghans Wurttemberg B21 movement (from my readings this is the second half of 1921) , but I'm unable to determine the model/housing of the clock. I'm thinking that it may have been re-mounted from the original as I believe the faceplate has a tag indicating a possible 'watchmaker' (??) that may also have some historical significance due to the address. Appreciate any assistance in identifying this timepiece so that I can properly assess it's value in the appropriate forum. Pics attached - please let me know if there's more info needed - the case has no markings other than the "chime" attached to the back surface.

Something about the clock that I like.If I could only get it to work. Any experience out there? It's a Junghans ATO. It's very clean. I replaced the battery pack, however still doesn't run. I am surprised to see that this is the only one on this discussion board.

Hi Vic,

Some months ago, I purchased a Junghans W70 grandfather clock but I was not able to find any information regarding the age of this clock. I have been unsuccessful in determining the age of this clock from any detail online such as catalogues. Please refer to the attached photos showing the clock stamping with the letters ‘NAH’ on the brass back plate? This is an unusual stamping and I have noticed this on a number of Australian Junghans clocks for sale, such as ‘NAH’, ‘GAH’ and ‘VAH’. In your post #1, you have also observed unusual stampings such as 'SAH', 'GAA' and 'VAH' stampings. What does the stamping ‘NAH’ mean? What were the ages of the clocks with the stampings that you noted? I was wondering if you could provide me or point me in the right direction regarding information about this clock.

The chime block is stamped HAU 215 indicating this block was manufactured by Hamburg Amerikanische Uhrenfabrik. Does HAU 215 provide a clue as to the age of this clock?


Do you have any information regarding the age of this grandfather clock or anyone worldwide who can provide me info with respect to the age of this clock? The clock face may provide a clue regarding the age of this time piece. Alternatively, does Junghans have catalogues from the 1920’s to 1950’s which may list this clock face style?


I appreciate your help with the above inquiry.


Best Regards,


Aussie Clockmaniac.

Hey everyone.

I love the site. I stumbled upon it after getting a clock from my old man a while back and never got around to posting anything of my own. The story is my dad got this clock from an old lady he befriended while working. He told her it was a great clock and she insisted he take it with him. Now it’s mine and I need some help with identifying it before I bring it in for some much needed TLC.

The stamp has no date (pre1905?). There are some pencil marks in the door, but I figure they are from someone who serviced the clock at some point. I’m not comfortable taking the clock apart at this point for other markings.

Any help with the ID on this one?

Here is a Junghan wall clock that has me puzzled. I has a round top (not square). The bim-bam time and strike movement is marked 104 1/2. Attached are two images in it's present condition. As I begin restoration, I am wondering if anyone can give some information about it. Thanks

I believe your clock was made in September of 1927, as indicated by the 279 marking.

The database that has been compiled by the OP of this very long thread, any400day (screen name) has documented only two Junghans that were date coded in this manner for the year 1927, and they were for the months of February and October. In addition, the referenced February date code used two digits for the month (i.e., "02"), whereas your clock shows only one digit ("9" rather than "09"). He has documented 1928 manufactured clocks with a single digit date code for the month.

Junghans changed their date codes quite a bit during the 1920's. Your clock, however, also has the look of a 1920's clock. Therefore, I believe that a September, 1927 date of manufacture is correct for your clock.

Regards.

Hi< probably not much help from me. I have a clock showing on post #1157. This is the same case and mine is a 1907. I am not an expert. Yours ,I am guessing, would be a little older as it is key wound and mine has attached winders (don't know the technical term) also mine is an alarm as opposed to yours being some type of musical play. But yours has the same time set dial on the movement, missing the setting piece that you can see on mine. I am guessing yours a similar alarm clock and maybe a few years older. I finally got mine working and had a woodworker make me pieces for the lower part of the case. These are neat little clocks and draw a lot of compliments.

I looked at the chart at the top of this thread and with you explanation ...I think I understand it better. I have catalogs from some of the clock manufactures; however, nothing on Junghan. Did they have catalogs? Does this clock appear in one? (see post 1191)

There were Junghans catalogs produced - in fact, Vic Tang (any400day) reproduced many of them onto CDs and sold them at his cost, I believe. His website may still have some available.

Past Times_ Antique Clocks and Phones Sales and Repairs Home Page

I am not sure if Vic continues to document Junghans clocks, but based on his ten year old spreadsheet, your clock would be of interest to him for his data base. His last post was almost four years ago, but he is still listed under "members", so he should be reachable via PM (or conversation, as a PM is now known).

Here is my Junghans clock that has the markings W200, 52 4, and 186. I understand this means it is a model W200 built in April 1952 with 186 BPM movement.

Here is a Junghans movement that has the markings W202, 29 11, and 140. I understand this is for a model W202 clock made in November 1929 with 140 bpm. What is the proper case for this movement? Thank you.

Acquired this clock and cannot find much info about it. The prior owner said it did not work and knew nothing about it. I have been able to get it operating, however, it loses several minutes per hour! I have adjusted the pendulum as high as it will go and it still runs this slow. Since I think the clock was in storage and not operating for many years, I am hoping letting it run and "unwind" itself might get it ticking right? I am a novice, but when I got the clock the people had wound it so tight that they stripped the key.... The coil seemed to be sticking and stopping the clock. I oiled the coils, and continued to restart the pendulum. After a short time it stayed running. It has now been running for a few days straight; I just cant seem to figure out why it loses time so fast. (FYI: the red wire around the bottom of the pendulum was an experiment. The pendulum would slide higher, but the rod is not threaded that high. I wrapped a bit of wire to keep the pendulum higher than the nut would go, but this has not worked)

Welcome to the board.

From what can be seen from your photos, the movements looks very dirty and dry. Some of the pivots appear badly worn. The movement likely needs a proper overhaul for it to work properly. You say it's a Junghans, and it may be, but I see no Junghans marking?

It would have been better to start a new thread in the Clock Repair section, rather than tacking your post onto this thread. Perhaps a moderator will move it for you.
