    It also doesn't help matters that old clocks, which always turn out to be grandfather clocks, seem to embody evil spirits in folk literature for children. Are there evil old clocks in the Disney universe?

    I read this morning that Disney is now warning before showing old movies on their new channel, that the content does not match today's norms, so viewer discretion is advised! Snow White was given as an example, as was Cinderella. Strange world we live in.

    It is indeed, for social media has helped divide us into thousands of squabbling tribes. Some years ago a spiritual tree in Pocahontas infuriated a powerful evangelical church here, which then made the near-fatal error of mounting a boycott against all things Disney. The church has since lost much of its influence and has (hooray) remained politically silent.

    I think we'll wise up eventually, but the process is taking longer than we might wish.

    I assume that we're all aware of the dangers of imported German brass. Think of the children.

    I just realized I never posted the final results of this venture. I finished this up over Christmas and it has been working like a charm. I decided to put glass in the sides so that you could see the movement. Seemed to cool to hide.

    Anyway, here is final result (there is a back on the clock, it just wasn't on when I took the side picture).

    tk, love the clock, I have many of those over the years, most came in kit form for the buyer to assemble. Also, like yours, most of them did have the Hermle movements installed but most were weight driven on chains (not so many with cables) typically it would be the Hermle 0461 units. In fact, it never seizes to amaze me how many floor clocks did/does have the Hermle movements!
    I deal in used (and new) floor clocks and I would say 4 in every 5 have the Hermle movements installed!
    I bet Rolf H is a multi millionaire! :D:cool:
