    It's a Terry repo. These were sold as kits by many companies for a long time. Your kit clock was put together in 1982 or 1983. The movement is a 141 Hermle with a front mounted pendulum. These movements were, and still are being made, in Germany. Also, these movements rarely run for more than about 25 years without being replaced or having serious repair work done.

    The "67" on the movement indicates that the movement was made in 1967. So, the clock is some earlier than 1982-83.

    Somewhere around 1968 Hermle transitioned from the old way of making clocks to the new way of making clocks. The pre 1968 movements are a little more robust and usually last longer, sometimes much longer, than the ones made later. Willie X
