I have the Kundo 400 day anniversary clock in working

Customer Question
My name is Ken...

My name is Ken. I have the Kundo 400 day anniversary clock in working condition. The finish appears to be oxidizing on the base. The pictures I have seen on line have an enamel face. I would like your opinion on what the value of the clock is and when do you think it was manufactured. I also would like to know if it can be refinished and if it should be. Thankyou

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Appraiser should be aware of?

I would like to send you my pictures of the clock.

Yes, the photo uploader only works with one at a time.

There should be some numbers on the movement, let me know what those are if the photo

comes out too blurry.

This is a Kundo anniversary (400 day) clock made by

Keininger & Obergfell of West Germany made no earlier than 1949. It is

called an anniversary clock because if working properly,it only needs to be wound

every 365 days, or on your anniversary. The value of this clock in

working condition with some oxidation to the brass plating is $30 to $40 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
