This porthole-style Altdeutsche Vienna Regulator measures 51 inches and is in excellent condition (dirt and grime will clean up very nicely) and has all of its original little bits and bobs (beat scale, wall stabilizers, finials, etc). One of the things I like the most about buying clocks in Europe is you can often find clocks that have been put back when they went out of style perhaps 100 years ago, so it is not uncommon to find a clock like this one that is very correct and complete.
Details – strikes on long gongs for a deep, melodious stike, one if the nicest German mechanisms I have seen – I am amazed at how small the strike fans are – and they are not simply flat pieces of brass that have been bent to accept an arbor, they are machined from a block of brass, just like the Viennese-made ones. Except they are smaller. Overall a very, very nice mechanism. The dial chapter ring (the porcelain outer part) is in perfect condition, and all the shiny parts (pendulum bob, weights, and dial center) are embossed and all match.
This will be a very nice clock when cleaned up. It will cost $3,600 delivered in the lower 48
