I picked up a very nice Deco car clock at a flea market. My plan is to make it into a desk clock. It's 6 volts, and it's made by Jaeger. The numbers are cut out of the bezel ring, revealing a thin yellow catalan insert which is lit from behind. It's really going to make a gorgeous display. Some questons: 1) Does anyone know the source application? The style is reminiscent of Nash, but I can't identify it positively. 2) Can anyone think of a clever way to get this case open? The problem is that the bezel has to removed to get to the works but it's held in place with a doze crimped tabs. The tabs are hydrogen embrittled due to the chroming, and can't be bent back without fracturing. Heat is out of the question, becase of the catalan. I'm thinking that the only way is to lift them, probabably sacrificing all of them. Then the problem will be holding the bezel in place after reassembly. Maybe a snug fitting o-ring would do it, but I'm not sure what I'll find behind the bezel. I'm not sure what the problem is, I'm hoping the balance staff isn't broken.
