This clock was purchased as a parts movement, the face, fob, and gong to my surprise came with it. When I laid eyes on it, I knew I was going to restore it and get it running, which I did. I had it up and running for five days without stop, see first picture, and follow the video link below to see it run. After which I sent the movement to be cleaned by ultra sound. The face I will probably not have restored, I like it the way it is. I like the serpentine hands on it also.
(The clock you hear chiming in the video background is my tall case clock not this one.)
The face is unique, at first I thought it was out of a synagogue because of the menorah like decoration at the top of the face, after counting the branches of the supposed menorah, it came out short by two. so that ended that. The pendulum fob is also very cool and carries elements from the design on the face. The gong and coil are unique and heavy, the coil holder is solid brass and labeled "Junghans Gong"
The date of the clock movement is determined by the eight pointed star with JUNGHANS curved atop of a large J).
If you have information about the model number of this clock, please let me know.
