    Thought I mite share with you one of my recent projects; Starting here as a parts clocks many years ago and a VERY reliable resident for as many, have always considered a dial change to match the case period - mid to late biedermeier. eBay provided the candidate movement, dial and hands. Following extensive tests and royal treatment decided it was worthy. The piecrust bezel was a PLUS and the beautiful hands certainly helped close the deal. It is reliable on one pound but final weight is yet to be decided.

    Thankyew; I can't take credit for all of it. To an incredibly gifted man in the land of roos and gnus I owe the top carving. On receipt the top piece was lacking the last two inches of both sides the carving and this genius with a carving knife did what you see. Incredible, as it would not be NEAR the case it is with a busted carving.
    Typical movement; trapezoid shape; average dims., etc. Nothing special other than it's very efficient.

    Seem to recall KEVIN, his name was, "CLIVE" who did the magnificent carving. There was also a large piece missing on top the center medalion.
    The one piece piecrust dial is the new one IMP. Generlly I believe the one piece piecrust is more desirable among collectors. At least for me it is. Now the piecrust bezel is more indigenous to this style case while a machine turned bezel is more appropriate for dachluhrs and such.

    Not surprised that even Pee-Tah could do it too. Among others I do recall a magnificent work he performed on a barometer.
    Wanna revive that for us Pee-Tah?

    Scottie , that looks just perfect, stunning actually. Not one thing I see that I don't like, A LOT. Can't go wrong choosing between those dials. Good work.

    I see it between a smaller and larger clock. What is it's size?

    'bout thirty inches. Certainly couldn't be called large so given those two terms it certainly is smaller with a common seven inch dial and 25" pendulum.

    A great looking clock, Scottie, and the one-piece dial does make a big difference indeed.

    Very lovely clock, a real life clock Lazarus. Any chance of a pic of the movement?
