Clock, case and glass look good for its age. However, it is running sporadically at best. Appears to be wound to the max and will run, then stop, gently tapping the case had it running, then it stopped, moving hour hand past 12 oclock you can hear it strike and run some more.
It will run, but not more than a minute or two at a time. I cannot promise that when you get it, it will do that, Im just describing what its doing know.Clock face is 4 ¼ across. Case is 2 ¾ thick.
I do not see anything other than Made in Germany. Tried to open back, but dont have right screwdrivers and screws are very tight.
Just assumed it was USN, but may be other. I Googled images under a lot of different search terms and cannot find a matching image of this clock anywhere, looked at hundreds of photos. Key reads HR 75-283 West Germany, but Im certain its not the key that came with this clock, although it fits.
I will post as much as possible in-between my search for a job (out of work). Thank you for your understanding.
