This old clock stoped working about 50 years ago, but it looks cool so we keep it.

Nope. All I know is it stoped working long before I was born.

I typed a somewhat verbose response to this posting yesterday but my "dementia" prevailed and I forgot to hit the send button!!

The first shot is a rather unique specimen. I like it.

That second shot of the anniversary clock is a treasure. That appears to be an original mechanical versions. Typically they would run for a year in a single winding.

In our home, we have a mechanical version (broken) that originally belonged to my grandmother. She brought it to the US from either Germany or Switzerland, not sure which. Downstairs atop the entertainment center sits a more modern battery operated quartz verzion. I have to replace the battery in it every 3-4 months.
