WUBA company no longer exists. We believe the clock is powered by a Schatz & Sons two jewel escapement clockwork, the famous W3 movement made by Schatz & Sons for some early Warmink clocks. Note: we aren't clock experts and haven't validated its origins; and the serial number is not completely legible. It has an 8-day clockwork and strikes1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and full hour half via hammers to rods. Every whole hour strikes with the number of hours.
It has three melody options: St. Michel, Whittington (aka St Marys) and Westminster.
It also has a Silent option. 11 or 29 cm tall and 9 or 23 cm wide and 7 or 18 cm deep. Comes with the original winding turnkey.Its pretty arched case looks to be either burled walnut or mahogany -- high quality and heavy; hinged access doors in the front and rear. Four brass acorn finials on top; four bronze/brass feet, accents & trim including a top ornament/handle. Wooden fretwork sound window panels on the sides of the case. The silvered face is beautifully engraved, has raised spandrels and is hand-painted. Dial has large Roman numbers, numerical border with ornaments around its engraved center.
Dial includes etchings of sailing ships and equestrians with dogs. Moon phase portion of the dial is hand painted, etched and colorful; it can be set locally to track the stages of the moon.
Interior back door has JAW shield/crest (John or Jan Warmink Almelo); the dial is signed John Warmink. Inside, the movements is marked JAW Wuba. Case Bottom is engraved "X 494". Clock appears to be in good working order although not professionally tested. Cosmetically, it's in very good condition.Note one area near the "IV" (9) on the dial that's stained presumably from a lubricant (we didn't attempt to remove it). The burled wood case retains its nice original finish but, as should be expected on a vintage clock, it has some minor scratches and imperfections (nothing that detracts) and needs a good polishing. Overall, wood case has very minimal signs of use, very minor nicks and minimal if any crackle -- the side fretwork/lattice has one small piece missing. The most recent routine maintenance was in 1977 (clock still has the Los Angeles jeweler's label on interior rear door).
This functional collectible clock is made by the most famous and best clock company in Holland, the Wuba company in Almelo, the Netherlands founded in 1929. It's widely known as The Warmink clock, and formerly was the WUBA clock because its origin company was originally named Warmink Uurwerken en Barometers Almelo (WUBA). The clock will be packed carefully to help ensure safe transport. After transit these clocks may need to be set up again as movement can slightly adjust the chime and escapement etc.
