Here I have a vedette that is in pretty good condition.
Unfortunately, of the hour rods fell off when it was chiming. How do I fix this?
You'll have to remove the broken rod's screw head first, then seek out a suitable replacement rod which will likely have to be tuned first. I find the chime rods presently being manufactured are not good quality so you might have to hold out on this one for a while.
Could I solder this somehow?
I’m not going to worry about that now. The chimes still sound fine. What does this label mean? How should I clean the metal crown and deco?
And what are all these third hooks for? I know there is a hood behind the left hook and I know that the front hooks are silencing hooks. And what is the levers for at the back of the dial? They seem to activate the chime. Is there supposed to be string attached. There is also a clip at the side too.
Without clear photos of what you are talking about, it is very difficult to give you any help. Not sure what you mean by 'hooks' and 'hood behind the left hook'. Please post clear, sharp pics.
A picture of the whole case that will show where in the clock these hooks are would be beneficial.
You loop the sprung cords into the case's side hooks to "silence" the chimes or hour strike. The cord is attached to a lever which holds the chime hammers back.
There’s another hook behind a hook in picture one. The picture one is left and the picture two is right.
