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.

logo.jpg inscription.jpg inside door.jpg bottom.jpg

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.

clock.jpg 1894JHPg127KleinTurka2864.jpg

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.

Picked this up at the local flee market, I guess it dates back to 1939 according to the marking inside the box.
I restored the box, fixed a broken spring in the clockwork. It keeps correct time and has a wonderful chime.

Hi everyone,
I've found this movement that's marked B33 V , it uses the round wire levers like the older models I think but I cant find any model with the 33 on the markinks.
Thanks in advice, I'd be very happy if some could help me in my research

Lorenzo,

Welcome to the forum.

Your movement appears to be only the second Italian made, non-swinger Junghans movement that has appeared on these forums.

Like the other Italian made non-swinger, the date coding protocol appears different than the German made movements. For the production year 1933, the date coding protocol for German made movements was "two digit year [space] one or two digit month". Your movement shows a dating protocol of "B33", which implies that your movement was made in the second half of the year 1933. The other Italian made, non-swinger movement we have seen follows this same dating protocol.

The letter "V" also shows on the Italian movements and not the German movements.

Please show pictures of the complete clock.

Regards.

Thank you for the super fast reply.
The italian origin of the movement makes sense because I'm from Italy and the clock was owned previusly by my grandfather.
Now the movement is in pieces because I'm trying to restore a gear that is unfortunatly broken, but here some photos of the case and the clock face.
When the restoration is complete I'll post the result.
Thank you again,
Lorenzo

Lorenzo,

The style of your clock is known as a "box clock". The style of your clock and the dial fit quite well in the 1933 time frame.

Now the movement is in pieces because I'm trying to restore a gear that is unfortunatly broken
If you need any assistance in repairing your clock, we have many well qualified folks here who can help you and will be very happy to assist. Any clock repair / restoration questions should be posted to the "Clock Repair" forum.

I just picked this clock up. I was told it had not worked for years, possibly overwound. I set it up, wound it, put it roughly in beat and it has been ticking merrily along ever since. Only problem is that it recently struck 51 o'clock, so I may have some adjustments to do.

I think it appears to be from 1908. I know it need a good cleaning and going over, but I thought I would see what else I might be able to learn about it.

Hello
Hope this is in the, post your junghans clock here. If not please remove.
A very nice example of a quartz 1970s junghans quartz quattro phon, works perfect, clean as can be, it is said to be very rare, have not seen another.

I do know quartz clocks are of low demand, what surprised me is the condition of the clock, for being 43yrs old,

Yes, it is in very fine condition and is a good looking clock.

Do the weights rise and descend?

I have never seen a Junghans branded quartz clock before.

No, unfortunately the weights are static, but the pendulum does swing when pushed with the hand, but as of yet I am not sure if it is supposed to swing mechanically by the movement, still trying to sort it out. I was looking for a accurate quartz clock and came across this one. I can not find a flaw on the clocks dial or case anywhere.

The chimes should sound very nice, especially on the Quattro Phon (Which yours is). I say to keep the clock you have. They are quite uncommon around where I live, or in the US. These movements are superior anything that retails today anywhere. Take good care of it (They are quite unfixable if broken) and definitely enjoy it.

The chimes do sound really good for a quartz, there is a manufacture stamp on the back with a production number of 390/4003, looks like only 4003 of this particular clock was manufactured, one of the selling points was the movement, I looked for sometime a moderen day quartz clock with a nice movement but nothing caught my attention, thank you for the heads up on the fix ability, this will stay in my collection.

Hello! I have recently acquired a rather large Junghan mantel (?) clock and would love to know a little more about it please (being an antique clock novice!). I am assuming from other posts that it was made in the second half of 1905 as shows the B05 date stamp under the eight pointed star company logo.

It does wind and run although the hour hand is too loose and keeps slipping back towards 6. The second hand seems fine. Is there anything a novice such as myself can attempt in order to rectify this or should I take it to the clock man in town? It has a beautiful quarterly chime (Westminster) and then strikes on the hour.

The white parts on the clock face are marked with black streaks. Not sure what this is or how best to attempt to clean it? I did try a little warm water but this didn't work. Or best to leave alone? Thank you so much for any enlightenment! Fiona

Hello Fiona,

The hour hand is just a friction fit. If it is slipping slightly try pressing it inwards on the hand shaft. If this doesn't work, you may have to remove the hand and adjust the tube.

You can't do anything to remove the streaks on the dial unless you re-silver the whole thing. But it looks fine to me, I have seen much, much worse! Just leave it as it is.

You are right about the date.

Dear JTD,

Thank you so much. This is greatly appreciated. I have tried pushing the hour hand back towards the clock but it seems to creep back and loosen again after an hour or so. If I remove the hand, what would you recommend I do to the tube? Thank you again.

I'm posting pictures of an unmarked movement I suspect to be a Junghans or possibly HAC in the hope someone can confirm its identity. I recognise the sickle shaped click springs, suspension and leader but the strike flirt and front mounted countwheel are variations I haven't come across before.

The countwheel on the front plate makes me guess an unmarked Kienzle movement.

A patent (D.R.P. 147023) for a striking movement with a countwheel etc. in front of the front plate was granted about October 1903 with protection effective from 5 Dec 1902 to Erhard Robert Schlenker, of Schwenningen.

Ironically, E.R. Schlenker was not the Schlenker of Schlenker & Kienzle. But, Kienzle used that technology quite a bit (on both marked and unmarked movements).

Regards.

I have seen that curvy, wavy design on the brass of the plates before.

I can not recall which maker used that design, but I do not believe it was Junghans (or HAC / HAU). But my memory could be off.

Thanks N2C. I looked at the strike flirt and thought it reminded me of Kienzle somewhat, but I've only seen those sickle shaped click springs on Junghans clocks so didn't know what to think..

Totally puzzled by this one. It has different features that remind me of different makers, but the double strike flirt thingy with the little spring between them reminded me of a several post war Junghans clocks I've seen with a similar set-up.

And another. This time family heirloom from my Opa ‘s side of the family. Remember seeing this one running in his den when I was very young. I’ll have to locate the top as I set it aside for repair and forgot about it. Movement marked A11. Story is it survived a Missouri flood in 1993 that devastated my dads collection that I would later inherit. I still don’t trust myself to get it back into running shape.

That one's a Junghans, as I'm sure you know already, made in the first half of 1911. Junghans were not famous for cuckoo clocks, but they did make some - I have a table cuckoo from Junghans.

As a family heirloom it's priceless.

I don't believe I ever saw a Junghans cuckoo prior to the cuckoo of Man from Abora.

JTD, when you get a chance, would you mind posting some pictures?

Thanks and regards.

Yes, gladly, but it may be a few weeks before I do as the clock is in pieces at the moment.

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

This looks similar to our clock which has the W278 stamped on the back (I have been told is the Movement number) and "36 1" which I was told is the date of manufacture. I hope this helps.

This is the clock inherited from my grandmother, and my farther mentioned that this was one of the marriage portion of my grandmother. I have little memory of this clock, and all I can remember is that my grandmother was liking this clock very much when she was living with us thirty years ago.

Greetings. This is my third or fourth Junghans wall clock repair. I could use some help dating it if anyone can help? Not valuable, but I really like these Junghans clocks. My guess is just before or after WWII?

Looks like Oak, with a set-screw fixed seat-board, using some modern-looking blued clamps which look like cramp-ons. I do not see any plywood, and know the bottom bezel is solid wood. The top may be plywood, may be a replacement, but I'm not sure. Movement has no plastic, but is dual-open barrel, and only has "105 inscribed on the upper left of the back plate, which I suspect is the BPM.

There is also a 7 with the cross bar on it, but it looks hand done. It's close to the stamped 105, being just below. Star wheel is [not] blued. The way the back wall hanger is designed seems sort of interesting, as I usually see just the plain eye for a nail. This one slides and locks. Came with stabilizers, one is broken and the case is 60x30x15.5 cm, without ornamentation.

Hands are painted black [but over a nice blueing job], and the arrows on the arbor holes tell you how to wind, which seems somewhat contemporary to me. Even came with what might be the original key. Brass plated steel, just like the nickel plated ones I see. Perfect for old guys with arthritis - solid. If the springs check out, it just needs a suspension spring and a clean.

Sorry about the picture quality...

Greetings. This is my third or fourth Junghans wall clock repair. I could use some help dating it if anyone can help? Not valuable, but I really like these Junghans clocks. My guess is just before or after WWII?

Looks like Oak, with a set-screw fixed seat-board, using some modern-looking blued clamps which look like cramp-ons. I do not see any plywood, and know the bottom bezel is solid wood. The top may be plywood, may be a replacement, but I'm not sure. Movement has no plastic, but is dual-open barrel, and only has "105 inscribed on the upper left of the back plate, which I suspect is the BPM.

There is also a 7 with the cross bar on it, but it looks hand done. It's close to the stamped 105, being just below. Star wheel is blued.

It is interesting that your movement appears to be unmarked.

Junghans date coded their movements. Junghans sold loose movements to the trade. Most were marked. Presumably, they also sold unmarked movements to the trade.

Box clocks were popular from 1895 or so to the 1920s. I believe your clock was made in the 1920s.

Regards.

Thanks. Seems about right.

The '20 were a prosperous period (but, and supporting you, not for post WWI Germany) and this thing seems spartan. The box is marked with the "J" logo, but the movement is plain-jane (open barrels, lantern pinions, etc.) However, the escapement front is readily adjustable, and I'm not used to seeing that front "Island" held with a screw. There's a screw holding the motion work on as well, rather than the circlip I see on later models.

Much appreciated!

That case looks French so I would up the gambit to the 1930's. During the 1930's, Junghans exported several uncased movements with components (dials, gongs, pendulums) to French casemakers who made them up into complete clocks. They are not always signed on the movement but your clock has the metallic 'Junghans' badge inside the case. These clocks tend to be austere in construction but easy for access and well built in many aspects, making them popular in working class households. Finding one with just a time/strike movement is unusual as many of the French models had quarter hour chimes.
