This clock has a beautiful case. I've had it for 10 yrs or so. It keeps pretty good time with the occasional adjustment. I have no idea what the movement looks like. It could have plastic gears for all I know. I should probably tear it down and clean it but with it's being Chinese I'm a little afraid to...lol...

    Do you know when it was manufactured Nathan? Let us know what you find when you do maintenance on it. :)

    Bruce! Always a pleasure!! I'm thinking it's no more that 20 years old or so... Have you worked on any of these Chinese or Korean movements out there?
  6. Bruce99 Bruce99, 5 years ago
    No, I haven't worked on any. I bought a batch of derelict movements at auction. Probably some clock maker's bone yard. A couple of good movements but mostly scrap brass. There are a couple of mechanical Korean movements in the box but I haven't done anything with them. It's getting hard to find something that isn't made in China anymore. A couple of years back I bought a pair of work boots from Red Wing because it was the only place I could find selling boots made in the U.S. and even they had their own "Made in China" boots. "Worx" was the brand name. I have nothing against the Chinese mind you, I just like to see fellow citizens with secure jobs that can support families .... so... sue me. We still have plenty of Lawyers. Never in the history of humans has there been a State which could Sue its way to success. :)
