    I just got this Swiss clock at a flee market.
    The clock is running and keeping time.
    It's missing some sort of ring? at the top. Any idea where I could get one?
    The dial is about 2.25" and about 3" total diameter.
    Any information about it will be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Carlos

    The brand name on the dial says a lot. This was not an inexpensive alarm clock. Imhof made better quality jewelled alarm clocks. Clearly an 8 day movement.
    I'm sure that a ring could be sourced. It is a matter of finding one. There were once a lot of such rings made.

    Yes, it's a nice little alarm clock.

    As for the ring, you can look on line or you can go to a craft shop and buy a brass ring of a suitable size. Cut a small piece out, spread the ring enough to get the ends into the holes and then press it to close it a little. Craft shops sell brass rings in many sizes, people use them for hanging small tapestries and other purposes.

    Thank you both for sharing information.
    I found the clock is a IMHOF Trianon 15 jewels.
    Is there a way to find out when it was made?
