How to Find a Becker Serial Number

Save

Gustav Becker, born in 1819, was a German clockmaker in the latter half of the 19th century. Becker gained recognition for his clocks after he won a Golden medal for design at the 1852 Silesia Trade Exposition and at the height of production, his workshops produced over 400 clock varieties from simple to elaborate designs. Becker clocks were almost exclusively weight-driven regulator wall clocks which bore his initials on the weights. Serial numbers on Becker clocks indicate which year the clock was manufactured.

  • Locate the clock dial on your Becker clock.

  • Look for the serial number anywhere on the dial. The serial number contains numbers only.

  • Determine the age of your clock according to the serial number in the following list:

    1850 (480 - 3,999)
    1860 (4,000 - 9,999)

    1865 (15,000 - 24,999)
