    Probably this clock is from the Uhrenfabrik Villingen (Maurer, Pfaff & Schlenker) from Villingen in Germany.
    With a little chance it also could be from Wilhelm Jerger (Niedereschach) or Idzumiya (Japan).

    When i first looked at this clock, i thought it was a Junghans, then i realized it was not.You have a nice looking clock and perhaps one that is not seen often.

    Am fairly sure, even on a Monday :), that this trademark and information about Jerger and the Uhrenfabrik(s) Villingen and the firms' histories -- much of it derived from Schmid's Lexikon -- have come up before here on the Message Board.

    Importantly, the relationships among W. Jerger, the Uhrenfabrik Villingen, Maurer, Pfaff und Maier, and the Uhrenfabrik Villingen, A.-G. in Villingen (Baden) were specified. That is, that the latter was formed in 1900 from the former.

    Andreas, will attach a clipping from the 1900 DUZ about it. The trade ad below is from an 1893 AJU.

    The case of this clock is extremely so to speak "American" in style. It reflects the still early days when German manufacturers who were making so-called Amerikaneruhren -- notice Jerger's "Fabrik amerikanischer Uhren" in the ad -- imitated their case styles as well. Not to mention the "papers" pasted onto the inside of the backboards.

    These Amerikaneruhren with American-style cases were mainly intended for the northern European and, above all, the UK markets (not the US).

    Am not aware of any publicly available catalogues from this era.

    Regards
    Zepernick

    Greetings Gotis,

    I know only one catalogue of Wilhelm Jerger (1900) and I will have a look, whether your clock is listed there.

    Please show us a photo of the movement, too. Thank´s in advance.

    regards!

    Gottis your clock is not listed in the catalogue I have.

    Your clock is very interesting: On the paper inside the clock there is the older TM of W. Jerger; on the dial the newer one.

    The movement is also very interesting: the stamp-outs are no waste but parts for the clock, like the wind-up-key.
