Here is a neat little clock from the Black forest of Germany. This is the other end of the spectrum. This is a Jockele miniature clock, with a bell strike and an alarm. So its a 3 train striking wall clock with an alarm built in, that neatly fits in the palm of your hand. The entire movement is not much bigger than a book of matches, Ca, 1840.

    Well, that's a pretty big book of matches but anyway you look at it, that is still a very small three train movement! A box of matches, maybe? :) Wood plates, pretty amazing craftsmanship. What did they use for lubrication on these kinds of clocks back in 1840? What do you use today? Thanks for sharing.

    I use a pin and some very light oil. a tiny drop is all you need...

    I read your original comments and looked carefully at your photos. Re-statement and emphasis is not really necessary. I don't think that I'm dense or stupid...although my wife might disagree at times. We'll just have to agree to disagree. It's a nice clock in any "case". Thanks for sharing.

    I suppose that another possibility is that the person holding the clock in your photos has little, *tiny* hands. Certainly whoever fabricated this miniature clock must have had elfin hands anyway...were there elves in the Black Forest of Germany? :)
