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 a new old stock dial.

Repair job 6070. The movement is Horolovar back plate no. 1010. It uses a .0024 inch thick Horolovar suspension spring. I polished the pivots. Polishing the barrel pivots on the barrel arbor makes these clocks run better.

  1. Howdy,
    I just bought one of these clocks off an auction site. I am not experienced at all in horotology. Boy will I be leaning on you.
