Looks like your clock is a Japanese box clock, more than likely made in the 1930s by evaluating the style and dial type etc. As most had quite good copies of American movements, they're quite reliable. You can find more info on the logo if you do a search for JapaneseClockLogos.com. There were many manufacturers of these clocks and they did them in many styles. Often people mistake them for German or American clocks. The older Japanese clocks are interesting collectabls and some are quite rare.

Expertise

I can not think of any questions I cannot answer in regard to repairing antique clocks or radios. However, I am sure there are a few I have not heard and may not be able to answer. If I cannot, I will say so. I have been repairing them since I was a young child.

Experience

My experience includes repairing CooKoo clocks, Westminsters, BimBam, almost all antique clocks. I do a bit of repair on battery clocks where the value is sufficient to warrant working on them. I also repair antique (tube type) radios - all makes.
