Schatz London Coach 400 Day Clock, Late Model, With Different Dial

I just repaired 2 Schatz London Coach 400 day clocks for a customer. The oldest one, dated 12-57 (December 1957) has the usual silvered dial with brass Roman numerals. The newest clock is dated July 1972. I didn’t know that they made them this late! Its dial is brass-color with a white chapter ring and black Roman numerals.

Repair job 6393. The newer clock had a cracked jewel, which I replaced with a brass bushing. The older clock had gunky black oil in one pivot hole. The pivot was rough, and the hole was worn, so I polished the pivot and installed a bushing. This was ususual – 400 day clocks usually don’t need bushings.
