    I am testing it at the moment and turns out it keeps time really well. Seller told me that it goes +2h per day... strange :D

    Very nice! The sort of thing I have wanted for quite some time now (most of the ones you get these days are quartz). The only drawback is that they tick very loudly!

    +2 hours per day? Too much for an "in need of a service". Sounds more like the hairspring is caught on the balance cock.....

    Yes they are very loud. The seller told me that it's +2 hours... I tried it myself and it works perfectly. Maybe he had no idea how to use a mechanic watch :D

    Nice catch such a cool looking piece, it reminds me of mine when I was a kid (not Junghans and was a blue case). Like Hartmut said maybe hairspring was caught and maybe during transport from himto the flee market and back to your home it may of freed itself.

    In the United States they were/are called travel alarm clocks. You took them with you when you went on business trips or vacation. They were protected by the case.

    I just got a couple from a thrift store. The local thrift store will sometimes toss a bunch of things into a plastic bag and put a price on them. They call them bundles. the clocks came in a bag with a few calculators.
