Rare High Quality German Weight Driven Vienna Regulator Antique Wall Clock For Sale
This is a BEAUTIFUL RARE example of a German 2 weight SIGNED 100% ALL ORIGINAL Vienna Regulator Wall Clock in SUPERIOR condition. German Vienna Regulators are of the highest quality with this fine clock being very high grade. Beautiful case with original heavy bevel glass. This clock has a heavy duty 8 day signed time and strike movement, which was one of the best movements made in the world. It was made in Germany circa 1900. This clock is extremely easy to wind, very high quality. Clocks with weights are more accurate than clocks with springs because when the springs are first wound they run slightly fast and as they lose tension the clock will run somewhat slower with weights being constant.
Clocks that needed to keep nearly perfect time, like jewelers regulators, were always driven by weights. The German Vienna's in our collection are much more accurate that modern-day quartz clocks. The clock also winds very easily with its included crank. This clock has its long beautiful original matching pendulum. Also the German clocks in our collection have not yet required any servicing and have kept perfect time for many, many years. The movement runs very well and keeps very good time.
This particular model chimes the half hour and counts the hours on a gong with a very nice sound. Very high quality movement. The movement is attached to the seat board and slides out for easy adjustment and viewing. No need to take the dial or even the hands off! German clocks are especially nice also in that they made it easy to service them. The clock is very large and heavy and measures 41 inches high, 14 inches wide and 7 inches deep.
There is beautiful original heavy bevel glass in which you can view the pendulum swinging and the weights falling! The clock has a nice quiet way it ticks also, the strike is also not too loud. The case is beautiful with no problems with a very straight artistic design. The original signed porcelain dial is in superior condition, easy to read with the rare seconds bit. Fancy Original hands.
Vienna's are easy and fun to wind, due to the high quality of the movement. These antique clocks amaze me - could you imagine any other consumer product still working perfectly after a hundred years! And the truly amazing thing it is ready for the next 100 years, and will probably run indefinitely with tender loving care.
Antique Clocks are a Fine Investment. Each one has a unique quality, as well as appreciating in value and beauty with age. You will become attached to your antique clocks and they will become a meaningful and important part of your life adding untold joy each day you own them. They can be handed down from one generation to another as they increase daily in value.

This clock will be packed VERY CAREFULLY to insure a safe delivery and the buyer is to pay $42.50 for shipping, packing and ins. International is exact charge. This clock is very large and heavy and we would like to use a large new double wall oversize box with lots of packing materials to keep this treasure in good condition on its way to its new home. Also shippers have recently dramatically raised their rates for oversize cartons. International is exact charge. I will gladly answer any questions via email promptly. I have always hated that "reserve" when I have offer so this fine clock has and a very very low opening offer (gulp). We love these clocks and I will be glad to help you set up your new clock, or answer questions long after the sale via email.
