The Gold Adornments are very clean and shiny and without any dark marks or abrasions and the inner dial around the numbers and winding arbors are very clean without the usual darkened patina which is normally present after 105 years of use, and the Roman Numerals can be clearly seen. All of which makes this German Masterpiece a beautiful addition to your home and one that will be passed down from generation to generation as a family heirloom. This clock comes with the ORIGINAL PENDULUM AND Replacement KEY. The surface of the Maple is clean with no reticulation and is in wonderful shape for an antique clock being 105 years old. Just think, this clock has survived WW I, & WW II in Germany, crossed the Atlantic in a steamer and made it to the east coast in the late 40's and is now waiting to find a new home where it will be cherished and be handed down from generation to generation. The Junghan's "J" logo inside a star is easily visible on the back brass plate. The style of the logo, along with "Wurttenberg" Stamp underneath the "J" designate its 1911 production. Junghans Clocks can be dated by the different logos they used over the years.
