Here is an interesting Kern 400 day clock with the signs of the Zodiac around the center of the dial. I overhauled the movement, replaced the suspension spring, and polished and lacquered the base and pillars. I don’t receive as many Kern 400 day clocks for repair as Schatz and Kundo clocks. I’m guessing this clock was made in the mid-1950s.
Repair job 6485. Horolovar back plate no. 1405A. I polished the pivots, installed a new suspension spring (unit 11A with 0.0036 inch thick Horolovar suspension spring). I installed a new 18 x 38 mainspring.
