A very high quality Junghans wag on wall clock. The movement is of the high end from Junghans. Notice the polished plates and fine machine work.
I have several Junghans clocks in my collection; none are as nice as this example. The clock chimes a single note on two chime rods at the quarter hour and chimes a Westminster on the hour. This is the only quarter hour chiming clock that I could bear live with if I were to run it continually.
I did some restoration work to clean up the case, but nothing so important enough as to note. Rarely, as I’ve found so far, do I need to do much work on Junghans cases. Thankfully, previous owners of my specimens have understood what treasures they are and taken very good care of them.

As I note above, this is one of a few Junghans clocks of which we are proud:
