The Door secures tightly and the beveled glass is clean and free of scratches. The back door closes securely through a pressure fitting. The Rich Mahogany Case is is wonderful shape for being 107 years old.There is some slight reticulation on the case, but it is minimal. As you look at the clock, on the "roof" along the right far edge, there is some flaking of the mahogany wood at the surface level.
It has been stained with mahogany stain, but not repaired, as to keep the integrity of the clock in tact.... This is the only reason this clock is being started at this low price. The dial shows clearly Arabic numerals and the Chapter Ring is free of any dark marks or abrasions. The Gold Scroll Work on the dial is beautiful, reflective and without detracting markings, usually found in a clock over a century ole. This clock keeps VERY ACCURATE TIME AND IS A STRONG RUNNER.
The tones of the Westminster Chime are deep and rich and continue to resonate far after the hammers have struck the chiming rods. The tones have a warm sound which reverberate within the solid Mahogany Cabinet. The Junghans "J" inside a star Logo is clearly seen on the back of the brass plate of this Antique German Mahogany clock , along with date of "A09" which means it was made in the first half of 1909. The movement has been ultrasonically cleaned and oiled for your satisfaction and continued enjoyment over the coming years. This sturdy clock is a fine example of German Craftsmanship and will last for many years to come--becoming a treasured family heirloom to be passed down from generation to generation.
The clock has the original beveled glass which is highly sought after and found was found in only the most expensive and sought after German clocks of that era. The face of the clock has a beautiful scrolled gold finish and an inner gold section free of marks or abrasions and there are two sub-dials present: The upper left sub-dial has the chime/silence feature and the upper right sub-dial controls fast/slow time adjustment. This amazing antique clock was made just 5 years before the start of WW I, in 1909, when President Howard Taft was in office. Just think, this amazing clock survived WWI, WWII, a voyage across the Atlantic by Steamship (I imagine) :- to make it to the USA. The Original Pendulum and replacement Key are included with this beautiful clock.
