Kriegsmarine clock


Recommended Posts

In researching the background of a friend's clock made by Junghans from WWII, I’ve seen mention of W146 and W246. Wondering what these designations mean. Welcome any help.

Hi Dow47, welcome to the forum, sorry about the delay in replying, have been working late in the shop setting up social distancing measures for reopening on Saturday. Regarding your clock the term W146 and W246 refer to the calibre  or movement of the clock rather than the outer case. So W146 would mean the movement resonates at 146,000 vibrations per hour and the W246 resonates at 246,000 vibrations per hour. Hope this helps. Could you post some pictures of the clock?
