When this Schatz cuckoo clock arrived at my shop, it was in pieces (a family member of the owner had attempted to repair it). The photos below show the clock before repair: I looked everything over, and all the parts were present and in good condition. I did the following: Dismantled the rest of the […]

Schatz 1000 Day Clocks Have Excellent Mainsprings

I recently repaired a Schatz 1000 day clock made in 1960. As I removed the mainspring from the barrel, I realized how excellent this mainspring is. It opens very far, showing no sign of fatigue. In fact, nearly every 1000 day clock I’ve repaired has a similar spring. A mainspring like this will last for […]

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. Then, someone discovered that if the movement was narrower, the import duty was less, as the movement was small enough […]

Schatz Cuckoo Clock Dated 10 54 (October 1954)

This Schatz cuckoo clock is dated 10 54 (October 1954) on the movement. It is the first one I’ve seen with a movement date. The movement also has RR for Remington Rand, the importer. Schatz designed and made their own cuckoo clock movement. They made only one movement model, an 8-day, with the design of […]

Schatz 1000 Day Clock from 1955

  I just repaired this Schatz 1000 day clock made in February 1955. This is the round model, and this one is old enough to have a glass dome (the plastic dome model have an extra piece on the base to engage the dome’s locking lugs). I polished most of the brass pieces, and installed […]

Schatz Midget 400 Day Clock Made in 1968

This Schatz “Midget” 400 day clock was made in September, 1968 (date code 9 68 on the back of the movement). The midget is identified by “JUM/7″ in the circle on the back. The pendulum on these clocks goes faster than on the miniature models – it makes 12 half-oscillations per minute. See more photos. Repair […]

Schatz Standard 400 Day Clock with Unusual Pillars and Roman Numerals

The movement date is 6 52 (June 1952) and the dial is the attractive and less-common style with Roman numerals. See more photos. Repair job 5926. […]

Schatz 400 Day Clock, Roman Numeral Dial with No Name, Ivory Painted

Here’s another Schatz 400 day clock with Roman numeral dial. This one has an ivory painted case. The dial doesn’t have the Schatz name, so the clock was made around 1949. (There is no date on the movement either, as Schatz started putting the date code on their 400 day clock movement in 1952.) See […]

Schatz Bermuda Coach 400 Day Clock, Early Style (November 1954)

I recently repaired this Schatz “Bermuda Coach” 400 day clock. It is an older version of the clock in my earlier post. This example has glass panels in the cover (instead of plastic), and the core of the base is steel (instead of Bakelite) with brass over it. The movement fastens from the top instead […]
