Schatz Standard Maroon Painted 400 Day Clock, 1952

This pretty Schatz standard 400 day clock has a  maroon and brass base. The dial has a maroon painted outer ring, and the center is cream color with an image of a man and woman seated on a bench. This clock is dated 7 52 (July 1952) on the movement.

See the following post for a similar maroon clock, but the dial is solid maroon color:

The movement is classified as Horolovar back plate no. 1281. It has an anchor with adjustable pallets instead of the usual solid anchor body.

The only repair I did on this clock was to replace the suspension spring and lower block, and oil the pallets.

Repair job 5475.

  1. Hi Dawn,

    Repairing these clocks is my specialty, please see my website at:

    I’ve seen prices all over the place, but repairs usually cost more than the current market value (but this doesn’t matter in cases where the clock is a family heirloom),


    Yours truly,


  2. I have the exact same clock, I live in florida and I was wondering if you knew any clock repair shops that deal with this particular clock and what the estimated value is of this clock. It has been in my family a very long time.

  3. I was wondering how much a Schatz Maroon Painted 400 Day Clock would sell for?
    Could you e-mail me any information?
