She’s pretty and she works great but is she old or valuable?

Valuable no, old yes. Nice clock, needs some tlc. Junghans made some decent clocks, and lots of them.

Actually, this is one of the quirks in Junghans dating.

A42 represents the first half of 1924.

For reasons unknown, A or B 32, 42 or 52 represents the production years 1923, 1924 and 1925, respectively.

Also keep in mind that during 1942, in the midst of WWII, Junghans was most likely not producing many, if any, clocks to consumers other than the military.

With respect to any Junghans clock, Junghans was the most prolific clock manufacturer in the world. Very few Junghans clocks, if any, can be considered rare.

Regards.

16 gong rods and a gong Westminster chime floor clock is very rare.

Based on the owner's label on the video (Junghans / GB) , I wonder if the clock is a Becker clock that was produced when Junghans owned Becker.

NOTE: I did not listen to the video if the owner spoke to this issue.

Regards.
