  1. Hello all, I am an keen collector of wrist watches so naturally I love reading this forum however, I am not knowledgable on Clocks. I was given this Hermle Mantle clock from a family member as it runs 15 mins late. I do not know anything about it and I am not really a fan of it and it’s loud ticking so am pondering the idea of selling it. I have no idea reading it’s value nor it’s rarity. i have managed to find the clock on the Hermle website but I believe the wood on mine is not mahogany, it’s a lot lighter in colour. https://www.hermleclock.com/Product/debden-7264 I have taken images but can not find a way of posting them in the post. Any information any friends can give would be really appreciated! Best, Matt
  2. My clock had a habit that it would stop, this was because the gut would get snagged, so I had to un snag it and it would go. To prevent this I installed new gut of the recommended size,its gone for a month without probs, but it has decided to do it again. When I wind the drum I feed it on with a knitting needle so that it sits tidily on the drum. Is there anything that I am missing? any ideas how to overcome this, the drum looks OK. Thanks in advance
  3. Hello, I am new to this site, I hope it's OK for me to post a problem I have with a carriage clock. The clock in question is a family heirloom, which has developed a problem after years of working fine (not counting when the spring needed replacing a few years ago). It still keeps time fine fine, but it has stopped ringing - it should ring on the hour. The clock has two winders, one still functions correctly but the other one - the one on the right as you look at the back of the clock - is stuck. I think it is fully wound up, but I'm not 100% sure about this as I didn't really notice exactly when it stopped ringing. I still hear the gentle click around 10 minutes before the hour, which I understand to be the striking mechanism starting up. I suppose my question is whether it's a serious/expensive problem to fix, or if it's something that a non-expert could reasonably have a go at (I am definitely non-expert, but am practical in general terms). Also, I'd be really grateful if anyone could tell me about the origins of the clock - I don't know any more than the fact that my grandfather bought it sometime (I couldn't even say the decade) and the person who serviced it last said that it is French and was probably made in the early 1900's. I can't find any identifying marks on the clock anywhere. Thanks in advance, Colin
  4. Hello, I am reaching out to the clock community in the hope of tracking down an early 1930s German wall clock which was stolen about a month ago from South London. It is has great sentimental value to my family as it was a wedding present to my grandmother. Unfortunately I can't find a closer photo of the face but it has a logo below the 12 which includes an eagle. The other identifiers are a damaged area towards the top of the clock where some of the wood was broken off. Also the pendulum was not with the clock at the time it was stolen. Any information will be greatly received and a modest reward is offered. Any help greatly appreciated.
  5. Now then... blimey it's taken me a year to make my first post! apologies for that. Well, I'm back because I've bough a replacement Grandfather clock. I've always been interested in clocks much to my wife's annoyance as her late Father was a watch and clock repairer, I guess the smells of clocks, parts lying around, which one is showing the reliable time etc has put her off. I have a habit of buying on impulse, cheap and often rubbishy things that I believe will sell on and make a bit too, often I keep things for years before letting them go. My first Grandfather clock which I reluctantly let go was a pine 30 hour clock, bought for £225 mid eighties sometime I regrettably let it go to a new home but did make a nice penny or two when pine furniture was fashionable. I now have, after a couple of weeks a nice cheap £225 again, nice oak/mahogany 1770 Kellett of Bradbury longcase Grandfather clock and I'm currently giving it a 'good' clean up and some general repairs. It runs okay although being a bit worn. Hope to show more photos if this one works.... using Google photos, (Fingers crossed that it works!)
  6. Hi, Just joined, well.... first post after joining a year ago! I wonder if anyone can recommend a touch up for a damaged Grandfather clock dial. The usual damage, the broken away enamel on face from the post attached behind to fix to movement (I dunno what these things are called) On the left of dial I tested using a permanent tyre wall pen, looks okay but it's a bit too white. The right damage was because someone had tried to solder the fixing leg to the dial and burnt the enamel.... When I got the clock a couple of weeks ago both these damages were disguised by over painting that had gone pinkish... there were decal flowers attached, it looked diabolical.... having cleaned all that off it don't look that much better. So what do I do from here? A LOT of work I know.... I even found more details by shining a UV light across the dial in the dark and much to my surprise I could see the makers name (Kellett Bredbury)
  7. I I have inherited a clock from my grandfather it is numbered with 253247 made by smiths of London and I was woundering if any one knew the history behind the clock it’s pretty heavy so don’t think it’s a car clock and in not bad condition I don’t know how to add a pic
  8. Dear all, i have just inherited this clock...but I'm not sure what clock it is or even if it is a clock! Any information would be gratefully appreciated thankyou Hello all how do you insert a picture thankyou, @Derek006 https://photos.app.goo.gl/gtYyfiFyxpN8ML6q9 thankyou https://photos.app.goo.gl/gtYyfiFyxpN8ML6q9

  10. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone knows anything about a alarm clock maker called Services? My wife bought a job lot of old alarm clocks recently in which were two Services 'Siren' clocks, but I can't seem to find anything about this maker (although the name itself does not make an online search too easy). One of the clocks after a little cleaning now runs beautifully and keeps excellent time, although a 2nd clock (exactly the same) does run fast, no matter how the hairspring is adjusted. Just interested to know more about them. Any comments much appreciated. Thanks
  11. Hello all, first time poster and hoping your experience and wisdom will help me resurrect this 1950s/60s car clock. It’s a 2” in-dash Smiths, CE 2160/02. It looks complete and the movement looks clean. I acquired as a non-tested clock. I think it’s negative earth, but first question is how to correctly connect it to 12v? It has a single yellow wire - is this for live feed or earth? Other than this it has two threadposts at the rear with knurled nuts and washers. I huess these fix it into the dash but are either of the threaded posts at the back for 12v positive also? All pointers appreciated. Many thanks.
  12. Hi, New to the world of clocks and asking for a bit of info. The limited history I know of it is it was previously my grandmothers but she did get it second hand when in Australia. Would anyone know anything further about the clock? At the bottom of the face it what looks to say Made in USA although the letters are worn after Made i.... so I may be wrong in that. Also does anyone have any recommendations on a place in London to get the clock serviced? While the clock does run, it doesn't last more then 1 day or so since its trip over from the land of Oz and the last service was sometime between 1995-98 so probably due for anther by now. Thanks
  13. Thanks to the people who do this work of art. A week ago, I went to the site http://komandirskie.com and I found a cheap watch, made an order. They are very cool. Many advantages and most importantly beautiful.
  14. Hi, All. Have just bought my first clock movement to hopefully bring back to life. From what I have gleaned, it's French, c. 1880s, has a count wheel set-up for the chime, takes a size 18 key and has a small pendulum (approx. 15cm, top-to-toe). There doesn't seem to be a maker's mark, just a serial number - 13078 - on front and back and an enigmatic inscription, either 15dm, 15Am, or 15clm on the backplate. The "15" is stamped, the characters are engraved in italics. Would anyone have an idea what this actually says and, more importantly, what it might mean? I'd love to post pictures, but don't know how. Many thanks in anticipation.
  15. I'm 17 and looking to buy my first 'nice' vintage, mechanical dress watch. £600 - £800 ish budget. I have VERY limited experience in the field and would appreciate any guidance and advice you could offer, whether it is on an actual watch or just the culture surrounding vintage pieces. Thanks!
  16. Hi there - recently acquired this clock from Germany and it syncs to CET - 1 hour in front. Does anyone know if it's possible to change this? Thanks
  17. Hello everyone! I'm as new to the forum as I am in the watch-area; total newbie. I became a member to discuss an impending acquisition. I'm in the market for a watch with a clean, humble design, and has gotten my eyes on this piece: Georg Jensen Koppel 307. It sports an ETA Automatic 2894, and is priced at approx 2000 € excl. VAT. I've hade a hard time finding any reviews/information at all regarding these watches online, except this one post on this forum that in the end really didn't offer much insight regarding the jensen watches. Only a comment that highlighted the fact that Georg Jensen was a jewelery manufacturer, not a watch-maker, and thus implied substandard quality(?). Does anyone have any experience with this/or a similar piece? I really appreciate the modest design, clean dial, no numbers, no abundance of small plotty details, that you'd find on most other popular watches. Are there any 'better' alternatives of similar watches? Best regards!
  18. Hi there. I found this weird looking clock movement at my local carboot sale, i purchased it out of pure curiosity really, does anyone know what it is please? I thought it being maybe a pigeon clock movement but im really not sure? Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Hi I am wondering if anyone can help me with any info for this clock I have. I have searched the internet and have found similar ones which possibly date from the 1950's but I haven't found one like this. Any help would be much appreciated. Hoping this photobucket link works as I am not too sure how to share the picture. Please let me know if it is not available to view
  20. So I stumbled across This bad boy yesterday and wanted to get some opinions as I've never seen or heard of it my life before.
  21. I've started collecting a few Junghans radio controlled clocks after seeing an RC2 in the British Museum. I thought it might be good to own the world's first mass produced r/c clock. I emailed Junghans Germany to see if they could tell me about the manufacturing dates of my 2 clocks and whether the RC2 came before the Mega. I think something must get lost in translation as I get half an answer for every 2 questions I ask. So, does anyone know the history of these clocks? I'd appreciate your help!
  22. Hello I saw this on ebay, made in Germany. (Couldn't add German tag as one doesn't exist!) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Praetorian-Night-Patrol-Black-PVD-Military-Watch-Tritium-Illumination-T25-/261016972935?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3cc5d2ee87 http://www.milwatches.com/product_info.php/language/en/info/p1762_Praetorian-Night-Patrol-Black-PVD---Nato-Armband.html Looks good I thought, does anyone own one? Are they any good, they have a Quartz Citizen/Miyota 2115 movement inside. Any replies are welcome. Thanks
  23. I would like to know more about a clock I acquired from my grandparents many years ago. As I am over 70 it is probably at least 90 years old. There are no obvious external markings. It still goes but probably needs a service. For a photo please follow this link :- https://www.dropbox....t%2015.35.jpg?m
