At first glance I thought that center dial was a center setting dial for an alarm but I see no indication from your photos that the necessary components making up the alarm assembly are in place nor any indication that they ever were. I may be wrong though. It could be for something entirely unrelated to an alarm but not sure what that could be. I know that a lot of clocks with alarm function came out of the Black Forest. The Postmans alarm being one of them was popular and sold in large numbers to the English market.
