This unusual Junghans wall clock from the early 1970s is set in an attractive brown glazed and raised pottery surround. The glass face is set in a brass ring with age patina, and the dial is white with clear numerals, black minute and hour hands and a silver coloured second hand. The movement is quartz requiring a single AA battery. The rear pottery surround is stamped 2578, and interestingly there is a label showing servicing dates over the years, by a shop in Holland from whom it must have been originally bought. An internet search shows that this family business still thrives!
Junghans are a highly respected and famous German clock manufacturer. The company started in Schramberg in the Black Forest in 1861, and are still making clocks there, having gained a worlwide reputation for excellence.
I have enjoyed this clock on my kitchen wall for the last month, and can testify to it being a perfect timekeeper, having needed no adjustment whatsoever. It is in almost perfect condition, save for one small chip in the pottery glaze on the top rim (see picture 5). This is barely visible when the clock is mounted at eye level (as per main picture), and is not noticeable when mounted higher.
