Schatz Standard 400 Day Clock Dated 10 54 (October 1954)

I recently repaired this Schatz standard 400 day clock. It needed to have 5 pivots polished, and the suspension spring replaced. I polished and lacquered the base and pillars. This clock is unusual in having aluminum leveling discs. I have seen only brass or plastic disks before (I think the brass ones came first, and were changed to plastic as a cost reduction).

Repair job 4862.

  1. I remembered I have another one from my Dads side as well. Only it’s a Kundo West Germany. I don’t see a date. I won’t wind up, but looks to be in better condition than the Schatz. I really don’t know what I should do. I think we want to keep them in the family. Are they worth getting fixed up and running?

  2. I inherited this same clock dated Jan 54
    It’s not running and I’m not sure what all it needs. I think it would be neat to get it running. Where do I go next?
