    I need some advise on working on a self winding clock

    When was the movement last serviced? If it's been a while, there could be worn bushings, dirt, etc. that are stopping the movement from running.

    Grivolas keeps stopping

    Dell - A saturated solution of alum will dissolve the steel screw over several days (it won't affect the brass). I let the piece sit in a plastic or glass container in the oven, which has a pilot light that keeps it around 100F when not in use - optional, but I think the warmth helps speed up...

    Kundo/Mayer clock with pink base

    The pink alabaster base is unusual to me; I usually see those on Kundos made for George Borgfeldt's 'Coronation' line, albeit with a slightly different design. All of the Mayer Kundos I've seen have a brass base. Either way, they are beautiful clocks, and were made in the early 1930's, when...

    Help to Identify Kundo Dome Clock

    Kundo always stamped their movements, with either their stylized KundO mark or the mark of the importer who sold the clocks. My first guess was Schlenker und Posner, but their pendulum design is quite different.

    Plate 1419 help needed

    Expending a lot of elbow grease, if you don't want to keep it heavily tarnished. To do a thorough job, it would be necessary to dismantle the case into its various components, not a job for the faint of heart! It will be a beautiful clock when finished; this case and pendulum are somewhat...

    Plate 1419 help needed

    Plate 1419 is for a clock made by Phillip Hauck, and the pendulum you describe should look like #6 on Page 195, which is also by Hauck. The bottom block should be a snug fit into the hook on the pendulum, and anything that fits will work. We would love to see photos of the clock as well as the...

    Hauck Louvre 17104

    Eric - It sounds like the shipping gods took pity on this clock and didn't do any serious damage! I have a similar Hauck Louvre: Post Your Ph. Hauck 400 Day Clocks Here, serial #25294. also with the "chronometer" pendulum.. It is a pleasure to live with! Best regards, Mark

    Jim - A truly beautiful restoration. I have owned a bronze four-glass Tiffany double-contact case for years, but have never found a movement for it - seeing your case has made me wish once again that I could! Best regards, Mark

    Junghan 400 day

    I believe the anchor can be rotated (carefully) on its arbor to place the clock in beat. No need to twist the spring.

    Kundo Model 403 "New York"

    I'm not normally drawn to post-WWII torsion clocks, but I've always liked this model for its 'atomic' styling!
