      Have same clock - purchased in Germany in 1956. Do you have manual or any instructions on correct size of spring?

      I have a clock exactly like yours that belonged to my father. I am wondering how much it is worth.

      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,
      This clock is made by the German maker Kundo. They made many of these clocks in indeed the 60's. It also depends on how much you paid for the clock, as If you get it repaired, you would have to encounter repairs like the suspension spring and possibly other things. After that, these Slave-Master 400 anniversary clocks require A LOT of leveling. The clock repairer should tell you what needs to be done, and what it will add up to. But if you like it and think that it is worth it, it may be nice to get it fixed. You can sometimes do it yourself by obtaining parts online, and following instructions you may find on Youtube. But it may be better to get it done by a professional. From a selling point of view, the clock the clock is probably worth 400-500€ in working condition. A nice clock and good luck with it!

      I had one identical to this and bought it for its looks and I think the price was pretty reasonable too. I have easily 1/2 dozen anniversary clocks, although a few require an overhaul. I have a good 3 or 4 blue ones and bought because of the colour of course. My latest one is running away on wheels and is probably fitted with the wrong thickness of suspension wire, so that will have to be fixed at some stage.
