    Hello


    When I saw this clock, it did not take a minute, and the clock was mine.
    Unfortunately I had overlooked in my euphoria that the glass in the front door was missing .
    The attempt to reverse the purchase failed.

    So now I have a four-glass clock with only three glasses!

    And the missing glass has to be bent and ...... !!!
    And it has to fit exactly in the door!
    So I need a custom made, where will it be to find! And at what price.
    Unfortunately, the dial is also damaged, but I noticed that before buying and accepted.

    A lot of work to do.

    But it's time to look at the movement.

    It is made by Hauck, nothing out of the ordinary. The serial number is 10814.

    Luckily, there is still something special. The pendulum.

    A pendulum similar to the pendulum in my GRIVOLAS with Hauck movement S.Nr 11313 .
    However, the disc diameter is only 71 mm .

    John has mentioned this pendulum at some point.

    Therefore it is a new pendulum in my collection.

    With the original pendulum of the previously described Vosseler, I now have more than

    100 original pendulums.

    I once made albums of my clocks and pendulums,
    But they have unfortunately been lost someday.

    Curved, beveled glass will be very hard to find and expensive. You might find an empty case for parts with the glass if you are lucky. Viel Glück, Dieter.

    There's always acrylic for the missing glass.

    what a nice looking clock! the missing front glass will be hard to find and nearly impossible to replace as in recent times, there's none who has the skills to make that properly - thats what i can report after several unproductive and expensive efforts to replace just a flat glas panel with beveled borders. as suggested by whatsgoaround, you should look for a spare case, this type has been used for french crystal regulators as well. there will be some work to adapt the chapter ring to the new case but that appears more promising than the search for a fiting curved glass..

    hunt a bottle with the right radius. I'd start with a 4 liter wine jug.
    diamond encrusted files and grinders can make short work of getting it to size.

    with any luck a bottle will make 4 or 5 doors...

    There is a firm in theUK who can bend and bevel glass for clock cases. They are www.classglass.org.uk. They will need your doorframe. They made a very good job of a similar one for me
