• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Help identifying a 8 day wood works movement

    I have a wood works movemnet that I am trying to identify. I believe it is an 8 day. It is out of a large case 36X18X5 clock. It looks very much like an 8 day I have in a C & N Jerome clock. I know there is a bulletin that covers 8 day wood works, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know...

    Measuring 400 Day Clock Suspension Springs

    Hello: I have a group of Horolovar unmarked/untagged suspension springs. I would appreciate any comments, suggestions or advice as to the best way to measure these. Length is obvious of course, and the book is great. Thickness and width? Is what I am speaking of. Many Thanks, Gary G

You should have a key somewhere, but if it is missing, they are easily available - come back to us. You need to wind all three once a week fully, until the winding stops, but without...

    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone knows of a supplier for 400 day clock bases. I seem to remember a catalog with bases in it, but cannot remember who it was. That was also quite a while ago. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jeff

    Schatz 49 400 Day Anniversary Clock parts?

    Today I picked up a pretty nice Schatz 49 (dated 11 / 53) 400 day clock. It seems to be running fine, but it has two minor problems: the dome is cracked, and it didn't come with a key - I have to wind it with a socket. Does anyone know of a source for parts for my Schatz? Thanks in advance...

    December 19th - The Longest Day of the Year

    Having just gone through the shortest period of daylight in the year (in Boston), I got to thinking about the length of the Solar Day. I remembered from school that the length of the day from Solar noon to Solar noon varied during the year and searched google for an article on the subject. To...

    Happy Independence Day Everybody!

    :smile: Happy Independence Day Everybody! :smile: Um?..just to make sure this is horologically related, perhaps some will find it interesting that no horological patent has ever been issued on this date in the United States. Why? Because it's always been a holiday, and the patent office...

    400 day clock repair

    Hi Donna; Any qualified clock repairperson worth their ilk can fix your 400 day clock for you. I am speculating here, but you will probably find that the suspension spring is twisted, or the clock is out of beat. It is a common misconception that a clock has stopped working due to...

    I have a Schatz 400 day clock, standard that I have replaced the suspension spring (complete) and adjusted the pendulum all the way up and the clock still runs very slow.
