Schatz Standard 400 Day Clock with Black and White Dial

January 31, 2009 | By | 7 Replies More

This model of Schatz standard 400 day clock, having an picture of a man and woman sitting on a bench in the center of the dial, is seen occasionally. I just finished repairing this one. It needed cleaning, 6 pivots polished (quite often Schatz 400 days clocks need pivot work) and a new suspension spring.

Below is a video of the complete clock running, and then a close up video of the escapement in action.

Job 4781

Back plate: 1014A
Suspension unit: 9
Suspension spring: 0.004 inches
Movement date: 3 55 (March 1955)

    There may be a date stamp on the back of the movement, it will have digits for month and year. They started putting dates on about 1952. I can repair your clock, details are on the following web page:

    I have a Schartz clock quit similar to the one above, antique white and black dial, face. But mine has a man and women on it in a different setting, the women is cascading down what appears to be brick stairs and the man at the bottom offering flowers, I’m unable to locate this one and was wondering where to take to have it fixed and its possible age & worth

    I have a clock that is the same as your job #4781 that was left to me by my grandparents and was curious how to go about getting a estimate for repairs. I live in north west Georgia. Thanks for your time.
