Schatz 400 Day with Early Logo and Roman Numerals

This Schatz standard size 400 day clock was made about 1949 or 1950 in Germany. It has the early form of the Schatz logo on the dial: written horizontally in black (later ones are red and incline slightly). It has Roman numerals instead of the more common Arabic numerals.

When this clock came in for repair most of the gears were rusty and the hour hand was broken off. I replaced most of the gears between the plates (the anchor or verge was usable). Before and after photos are shown below.

Here is a slide show:
