Would something like this work? Can you show the clock it came from?

Unfortunately I would need something similar or same as the picture
The clock is from a quartz anniversary clock similar parts can be seen on other quartz clocks
The one I am trying to repair is a staiger quartz anniversary clock

I'll move your request to the 400 day clock parts wanted thread. Those guys might be able to recommend something ;)
Now that I moved it, I see that you already had a request going here. It's still the best spot for help though :)

If you have a good "flag" for the clock, there are companies out there that can 3-D print parts. The issue is that a scan of the part is needed...the company then just executes the print using the numerical scan of the part.

There were numerous variations on this basic design.
Perrin has many of them, but is missing some, as well.

Hi
Thanks for the reply
The flag at the moment is a bit beaten so ideally if some one has one that is similar that they could sent to me would be greatly appreciated
Many Thanks again

HI
I have done some more research and this flag is seen on the following clocks, mostly the Kundo clocks but maybe on others that I do not know off
To my research the following clocks have a similar flag to the one I have
Kundo Standard 79 Quartz
Kundo 538202 400 Day Clock
Kundo 537560
Kundo 527117

If anyone has any of the above clocks and any spare bits or just the flag then please get in touch
Many Thanks in advance

Thanks for the link
Would you happen to have any spare flags please
No.
They're not something I would attempt to 'fix'(Mainly, because I had no idea what strength of replacement spring to use when melting it into the plastic), so they've always just been sent to the landfill.

That’s not really the way it works here… This is a place of sharing information and guiding people along their journey’s… But it’s your journey, and you’re going to have to do your own searching for parts now that you know what you need.

also, we are not supposed to do horse trading in public forums. If someone has a part that you’re looking for they will reach out to you in a private conversation. If you think someone has the part you’re looking for, you need to contact them via a private conversation and not in these public forums.

You keep asking if someone could send it to you… whichever ‘it’ you’re talking about … but you’re probably going to need to go to eBay or somewhere else and find a donor movement.

Hi
Just to clarify that I am not asking for a hole movement or a big part of the clock just the flag
