Looping and Junghans, Free to a good home

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I'm moving away soon and trying to scale down a bit,

I picked up these two clocks in charity shops and they have been on the long term backburners.

The Junghans appears to just need a service and the balance swings intermittently, the Looping is a Cal.51 and appears to run fine, but the alarm needs some attention.

I will post these free to whoever would like them, preferably in Ireland or the UK (so I save a but on postage)

P.S. I ran this by OH to see if this was OK to post here

A very generous offer, I have too many on the back burner would be good if someone who's wanting to try moving into clocks got these, the looping is a very good quality alarm clock fully jewelled movement.

I'm more than happy to offer these a good home and would be very useful to me as I continue to accumulate movements to gain experience. If that would be acceptable I may be able to offer a pass on gift to a member myself.

 

Opps where are my manners,....please :)

I’ve visited the looping and it’s running fine, it needs a new glass which I will source. The outer rim is tarnished and will not polish out so would need replating. The face has some tiny pitting spots which will not polish out but with a new glass will hardly show. 

Its a lovely little piece and one that will stay in my collection :)

The dial on the looping cleaned up very well, fair play!

It looks like solid brass? If so, you can just take the old laquer off with paint remover, then polish it and redo the clock with laquer you buy in spray cans, wipe it over with mineral turps first to take off any resadue. Don't leave it raw brass as it will tarnish quick and you will get fingerprints all over it.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to do the rim?

    • A faceted crystal has ..faces but not a lip. Seiko did not use glue often, and the crystal will not leave by pushing with a thumb. Fortunately, Seiko helps watch repairers by classifying and documenting the case construction, here we have an "A" as stamped on the case back. Attached the guide. A good discussion is at https://www.plus9time.com/seiko-case-back-information BTW, I recommend the OP to use the "Watch Repairs Help & Advice" section when it's repair question like this. One advantage is that there answers can be rated and marked as resolving.   1982.03 Seiko Case Servicing Guide.pdf

    • Hi Jeffie and welcome. With the Seikos you’ll fit right in   Have fun and chat away.
    • Thailand. I thought Mark mentioned Taiwan in one of his videos and perhaps mistook it as a joke. I've not traveled much.  Been in the Rome airport a few times and spent a few weeks in Greece, but never lived anyplace more exotic than Kansas City.  Living in the Ozark hills was culture shock.  You know how far I have to drive to buy anything like decent scotch?  It's a day trip!  I would love to see the U.K.  Give up my artillery and move there?  I don't think so. I suspect Mark is having at us.  I suspect he has made so much money off of us he has moved to a large country estate!
    • Hi, Im a new member and wanted to introduce myself. Ive been collecting watches for about 4 years and just fascinated about the watches themselves, the movements and the history of the brands. I own one of my grail watches as a gift to myself for being with the same company for 25 years. It is the Seiko emperor tuna sbdx014. All my other watches are lower mid tier watches. Mostly Seikos and a few micro brands. Thank you so much and looking so forward to learning from all of you Jeff
