Gustav Becker 400 Day Anniversary Clock - Antique 1908 - Great Working Condition For Sale
Gustav Becker 400 Day Anniversary Clock - Antique 1908 - Great working condition
I have been a certified clock and watch repairman for over 45 years. Over the years, I have acquired several clocks but now I need to downsize on my collection as I'm running out of space in my shop.
I have just recently cleaned the movement in this clock and found no problems with it. It is in very good condition and works beautifully, keeping very good time.
The Serial number is 2395501. It was made in 1908, (according to Charles Terwilliger's 400 day clock repair guide, plate 1207A). I feel that for being 105 years old, it is in very good condition for it's age.
It is in it's original condition with a disc pendulum. It has a small dial, no damage. or dents but it does show signs of age. It has an over head adjustable suspension bracket and the guard is complete.
It measures 11 1/2" in height and the base is 7" in diameter.
There is some slight damage, (small crack), and discoloration to the base and shows some corrosion to the pendulum which of course, comes with age. I did not attempt to clean any of the corrosion, I will leave that up to the buyer.
The glass dome is in very nice condition with no cracks or chips. This clock also comes with a key.
This beautiful 400 Day Anniversary clock is being sold in "as is" condition. I have described it's condition to the best of my knowledge. It would make a great addition to anyone's collection of fine antique clocks.
I will take great care in packaging this clock when it is shipped to the winner. U.S. buyers only Thank you and good luck offerding.
