Schatz Standard 400 Day Clock with 54 Instead of 49 in Circle on the Back

This Schatz standard 400 day clock looks ordinary – but – it has model number 54 instead of 49 in the circle on the back. Movement model 54 normally refers to the Schatz 1000 day clock, and 49 is the model of their standard 400 day clock. I’ve seen several of these mis-stamped clocks, so […]

Schatz “London Coach” 400 Day Clock, March 1956

Here is a nice example of the Schatz “London Coach” 400 day clock. This one is dated 3 56 (March 1956) on the back of the movement. I disassembled and cleaned the movement and polished the pivots. I replaced the suspension spring with a new Horolovar 0.0024 inch thick spring (note that I used a […]

Hermle 1950s 400 Day Clock

Here’s a Hermle 400 day clock form the 1950s that I repaired recently. Hermle 400 day clocks are not very common. I get many Schatz and Kundo 400 days, but seeĀ  a Hermle only every couple of years. The dial has a 3 15/16 inch minute track, and the minute hand is 2 inches long […]

Kundo Nickel Plated 400 Day Clock Made about 1950

This Kundo standard-sized 400 day clock has a nickel plated finish instead of the common plain brass. It has a wide-plate movement so I believe it was made on the early 1950s. The back plate has no name, just the Kundo logo in a circle. It uses a 0.0032 inch thick suspension spring. I didn’t […]

Schatz Copper Plated 400 Day Clock

This is the most unusal Schatz 400 day clock I’ve seen – it has a copper plated finish. It is the only one I’ve see in all my years of collecting and repairing clocks. When the clock came in for repair, the finish on the base had been damaged by attempted polishing. The movement and […]

Kundo Standard 400 Day Clock

This is one of the most often seen 400 day clocks: the Kundo standard with brass base, glass dome (5 1/2 by 11 inches) and enamel dial. The Kundo is a well-made clock and will last for many years. This one is about 56 years old and still going strong. In the repair process, I […]

I recently repaired this square dial Schatz 400 day clock made in November 1953. I cleaned the movement, polished the pivots and the anchor pin, and replaced the suspension spring.
