    Yesterday we visited a small museum of local history in Quakenbrück ; they had a number of interesting towerclocks.Here they are.
    Starting with a late 19th cent. Eduard Korffhage , then the remains of an 18th cent. wrought iron clock,a three train Korffhage from the 1830ies and an early 20th cent. constant force three train mvmt. with electrical remontoir.Enjoy!

    Thanks Burkhard for the posting and pictures, interesting to see tower clocks from Europe. I have only seen English made and American made tower clocks.

    Thank you for sharing those! The first and last Korffhage Turret clocks are basically a dream of mine to own. Those two particular later designs are a couple of the most beautiful clocks with some great features about their going trains. Rementoires used in tower/turret clocks are just mechanical beauty like no other.
