Luca, thank you for sharing the catalogs and Happy New Year to you!

I decided to add some info to my post, because today I found the model of this clock, on a 1932's catalogue.
the name of the model is Milano.
I discovered that, unfortunately, the dial of my clock is not the original one.
It is possible that the 1929 version of your clock (we are assuming your clock was made in 1929, based on the date code) was different than the 1932 version. :)

Nevertheless, your box clock has a very attractive door. Most box clocks are much more plain than your clock.

Regards.

Hello all. I recently received a Junghans clock as a gift, and I was curious about the age of the clock. From previous posts, I have learned that the logo on the movement was used from 1890 to 1900. There is no date code in the format A 02 for example, but there are other inscriptions on the movement.

The case is the same as Moe Schmidt's (post #237) which was identified by any400day as "Klein Turka" Model No. 2864, and he included the 1894 Junghans catalog page (post #240). This satisfied my curiosity about age.

I noticed that the dial and hands of my clock are different than Moe's & Junghans catalog. Also the movement is different.

Can anyone tell me who this is please?

I would love to know your thoughts about this clock. Thank you, Joe

Welcome to the forum.

I have learned that the logo on the movement was used from 1890 to 1900.
To be more precise, that trademark was registered in 1890 (or 1891 - I am not sure without researching). Junghans commenced date coding their clocks in 1901 until the 1950s or so.

Therefore, a movement with that trademark (the "Unghans over a J within a star") and no date code was most likely manufactured between 1890 (or 1891) and 1900.

there are other inscriptions on the movement.
Hand written inscriptions are known only to those who inscribed them. :)

the 1894 Junghans catalog page
A catalog from 1894 proves that the clock model was offered in 1894. Most likely, it was offered in xxx many years before and after the catalog date. With respect to your clock, it was most likely made between 1891 and 1900, but with catalog proof, it is quite reasonable to state your clock was made in 1894. This range of years could be the reason that:
movement is different.
Regards.
