That's how they were made. It's just there for looks, and 45 seconds per revolution is "correct".

Hola. ¡¡asi de bueno!!. Este es mi reloj Schlenker & Kienzle. Lo compré hace una semana en Internet y el propietario no sabía si funcionaba. afortunadamente funciona bien pero cuando tomo el tiempo, la manecilla de los segundos me preocupa. jajajajja ¡Gracias por la ayuda!

[QUOTE = "shimmystep, post: 1156178, member: 43467"] Bienvenido a MB Jose!

Probablemente todos hemos estado desconcertados por eso en algún momento :)[/ QUOTE]
jajajajajajaj

Yes, I thought that some gear had been changed and now it was wrong. The Gustav Becker turns around in 60 seconds?

My Gustav Becker is not 60 seconds either, but my IBM master clock is, some are, some are not.

My H Endler has the same goofy seconds bit - drove me crazy until I did the research and found that many were made that way, along with some interesting (but probably not true) explanations why.
