I purchased this clock for my '49 home, and wondered if anyone could provide any information about it? Particularly what year it might have been made, and appx. value? All I know is that it was manufactured in Germany by Junghans sometime after '40. Thanks!

    Many people make the mistake of valuing their clocks by going to Ebay and looking at what people are selling their clocks at - the actual "For Sale" Amounts.

    For example, you go to Ebay and see your clock being listed as BUY-IT-NOW by all these Dealers for $500, $500, $530, $520, $490, $700, $450, and an auction where it's up to $300. So you say to yourself, "Oh, my clock is worth around $500, GREAT!!!"

    This is a mistake; you cannot value your clock by these amounts.

    Why?

    Because these are "for sale" amounts, not "actual" selling amounts.

    For "ACTUAL VALUE", the best way is to go on Ebay and check "Completed Auctions". That's right, look for ACTUAL SALES, and see how much your clock went for - and remember - look for actual selling amounts.

    Many times clocks don't sell - you don't want to look at those auctions - again, you only want to look at auctions where the item actually SOLD.

    Now you look at COMPLETED AUCTIONS - and you see your clock in a different light. None of those BUY-IT-NOW auctions where your clock was listed for $500+ did the clock sell - so you cannot count those. You look closer - there's one that sold for $325, another that sold for $250, another for $290, and one more for $300.

    From this you can say your clock can be valued at $250 - $325. That's a definite difference from the $500 by looking at current auctions, right? So don't make that mistake - always look at "Completed Auctions" and you'll be close to your item's actual value.

    Good Luck!

    Hi,
    Junghans is a german maker that made these weight-driven Bim-Bam chiming wall clock in the 40's to the 70's. The value is probably somewhere around 300-475€. Thanks!
