The W200/100 movement was in use from circa 1927 to circa 1967. And, you are correct - the consensus is dimpled movements commenced in the 1930's.The movement has dimpling which according to the consensus in the archives, the practice began sometime in the 1930's. So, the case numbers, if it were a smeared 11 and not 17 could very well be a date. I'm thinking 40 more than 48, but I'm just commenting from what little I know. There are experts who will be along soon.

Thanks JTD , I'm away from home but my wife took the following pictures (not exactly what i wanted !) - on the inside back of the case is the "J" logo and unghans. I hope you can just see the design behind the bowl chime and Wire chime in the attached. Will get better pictures once i am back home in a couple of weeksWelcome to the board.
Please show us photos of the movement, particularly the back plate, and it will be possible to give you more information. You say it is a Junghans and it may well be, but I can't see any identifying marks in your photo (which is not very sharp) and so I am wondering how you know it is a Junghans.
The Junghans trademark was registered in circa 1891 and as best we know, Junghans commenced date coding their movements in 1901. This implies that your movement was made between 1891 and 1901.Hello everyone!
One of my relatives inherited this Junghans clock. He would like to know more about it therefore, he took some photos of it. According to the photos, there is only the trademark on its dial and black plate (nothing else). We would appreciate any information regarding its age, originality, catalogue photo, etc. Can it be the original case or was the older mouvement installed in it later?
Thanks for your help in advance!

A nice example of a German ogee clock, imitating a style of clock that is associated with American makers. We not too long ago had a thread on another German-made ogee. There are references there that would prove interesting reading. Unfortunately, articles in past issues of the NAWCC Bulletin can be accessed only by members of the NAWCC. Still, you might find the thread itself interesting.
IIRC, that Junghans paper label - the "e pluribus unum" and variations of it - were noted as early as 1877 through 1882 and possibly later.
E.J. Tyler, in his book American Clocks for the Collector, states that the trademark was registered in 1877. He implies it might have been in use until 1888 when Junghans registered their five-point star logo. Junghans was one of the earliest German companies to copy American style clocks, movements, cases, even labels. The idea was to capitalize on the popularity and inexpensiveness of American clocks in an attempt to reclaim some of the European market (particularly England) taken over by the American clock manufacturers.IIRC, that Junghans paper label - the "e pluribus unum" and variations of it - were noted as early as 1877 through 1882 and possibly later.
It is a very early Junghans trademark / logo.
Thanks for the welcome!Welcome to the board.
I think the lever on the left is the night-time chime silencer. Try it and see.
Others will no doubt be along to give you more information.
Well, I need to amend this statement.When I first got the clock home, that lever on the left (located at the 9 position) was loose, kind of floppy.
After I wound the clock up, it became stiff.
Just picked up one of these recently. Did you ever find out the model name or number?Hi, i bought this Junghans Mantle clock B11 / 151 from an auction a while back, 2008, and finally got around to take some pictures whilst cleaning the outside.
Since only having it such a short "time" can you please provide some history background on where this clock started out. Any information appreciated, thanks.
On the bottom there is an 18
On the door-inside there is 5699 and 60/-
Movement B11 with 151.

Junghans had what was first an assembly plant, going back to 1878, then by the turn of the century, a manufacturing facility in Venice which, after various name changes, became the Fabbrica d'Orologeria Arturo Junghans Venezia (Giudecca). Curtesy Doug Stevenson.I know that, since 1903, Junghans had a huge production plant in Venice ( perhaps that is the reason for letter V after the code).
These date codes have been documented. Date codes for the year 1929 most likely used the "two digit year [space] one or two digit month" protocol for the months of January 1929 through May 1929, inclusive.Based on the table posted in this thread, the clocks produced in 1929 were marked with the code year/month of production (i.e. 29 7 or 29 8), but in your table, for the 1929 year, I read codes from june to december only.
I am not sure. This is the first that I have seen this.And what does the letter V mean?
