Schatz Std. 400 Day Clock, 49R Narrow Movement, Made in 1953

This 400 day clock looks like a regular Schatz standard. However, it has an unusual, narrow movement. A brief history: Through the early 1950s, standard size 400 day clocks had movements of about the same width.

This example has “wings” on the movement to make it look like the wide movement that was first used on Kundo standard 400 day clocks. It has the older type of […]

Schatz Standard 400 Day Clock with Roman Numeral Dial, ca. 1951 – 1952

I really like these Schatz 400 day clocks with Roman numerals. I’ve shown this model before, but I like it so much that here is one I just repaired. The dial has the Schatz logo, and the movement has no date, so it was made ca. 1951 – 1952. I polished the base and pillars. […]
