Item:132971325124Welcome to my shop'M' antiques Good Brand is Always in Fashion Here for sale is an Antique German 'Junghans' Striking Wall Striking Clock, 19th Century1875 Arthur JunghansArthur Junghans took over managing the company in 1875, following his father's premature death. Arthur was a watchmaker by trade and training and had traveled to America, where he studied the latest technological possibilities provided by rational production. Arthur Junghans introduced many new production techniques at the company, providing the ideas, serving as designer, and playing the role of technical leader. Even before the turn of the century, numerous machines and processes were developed that gave Junghans outstanding advantages in terms of quality and manufacturing. Arthur Junghans focused primarily on innovations in watchmaking, and no less than 300 inventions were patented under his management.1890 The star over JunghansThe 8-point star that is still the Junghans trademark today was first registered in 1890. Junghans watches came to be known as affordable, high-quality products from Germany and sold well around the world. In 1903, Arthur Junghans' vision became a reality - Junghans was the world's largest watch factory. More than 3,000 employees produced more than 3 million watches each year. The manufacturing facility soon had to be expanded. And so the terrace building came into being, with a step-like construction that delivered natural daylight to each and every watchmaker's work station. The building is now protected as a historic monument.Strikes the hours and halves on a single coiled gong. 10-day movement often referred to as a 'latch' movement due to the way it fits to the case mounting plate.The clock has hand made glass with bubbles inside as you can see in the last image.A fine quality piece throughout. The clock measures: 128 cm in height, 48 cm in width, 20 cm in depth. This is a working clock and is in very good condition, given the apparent age of this timekeeping device. There is appropriate and honest wear and patina from true use over the many years.You can hear gongs in my video:https://youtu.be/OpPHhGpBWfMJust copy this link in a new tab for watching.
