    I have two of their clocks. Do I need this for a secret task?

    It looks a lot like a ratchet with the ratcheting pawl missing. It is probably a winder.

    Don't forejudge!
    With the tool you can adjust a balance screw (alarm clocks, clocks) without disassembling.

    Do you have a pic? The only ones I can find are for the screws loose in front of the clock. You were, kidding right?

    No, praezis is not kidding. I believe he has answered your question. Odd tool. I have not seen one before this entry.

    Could you spare a foot or so when you find it-there is a fellow here who needs an adventure.
    TIA

    Sceptics forced me to do what I wanted to avoid: search through my library and make a scan.
    I found this in a Jendritzki book from 1950. In German however :)
    Caption: "Balance screws under the dial".
