  1. Dial resilvering - Germany

    I am restoring an antique Kienzle grandfather clock and have successfully been able to get it into good working order. The case is beautiful German oak and is in excellent condition. However, I need to have the dial face re-silvered and new numerals painted. I am located in Frankfurt, Germany and need to find a shop in Germany that does this work. Does anyone know of such?

With the added weight, it seems to work fine, how can I adjust the movement or whatever to work with the single 9oz weight? This is my first time working with a cuckoo clock
  4. Riverside Maximus reborn...

    This is a story of a movement I bought on eBay about... like... 2-3 months ago. More or less. The decent 12 size model 1894 Riverside Maximus was to be among the very fanciest watches I have, as al Maximus grade are bound to be.
