German WECKER D.R.P. & G.M. Alarm Clock

Recommended Posts

Well just picked one of these up at a local antiques fair, cost a fiver missing crystal and the alarm hand has snapped but minor faults. 

The picture is taken from the internet as mine is in the workshop at the moment.

the whole thing is only about 2” square, I popped out the movement  earlier just for a look and the balance is ok but it’s filthy so will benefit from a good clean etc.

has anyone any info on the movement please, not worked in one before and don’t want to wreck it when I get round to bringing it back to life, cheers in advance

Adding a few more pictures of mine, just dropped the movement from the case and now back together awaiting the love.

Haven’t found a makers mark or cal. But don’t really expect to, so I hand it over to the forum for any additional information that I might need when I start on this gem.

Whilst I was taking the pictures I gave the balance a little nudge to make sure the staff was ok and it decided to give a couple of very painfully slow tick tocks so all is well, will just need to inspect and clean etc and get a new crystal and Alarm hand and hopefully another to the collection. But first I have to finish me “like” an 8 day pocket watch!!!

    • A faceted crystal has ..faces but not a lip. Seiko did not use glue often, and the crystal will not leave by pushing with a thumb. Fortunately, Seiko helps watch repairers by classifying and documenting the case construction, here we have an "A" as stamped on the case back. Attached the guide. A good discussion is at https://www.plus9time.com/seiko-case-back-information BTW, I recommend the OP to use the "Watch Repairs Help & Advice" section when it's repair question like this. One advantage is that there answers can be rated and marked as resolving.   1982.03 Seiko Case Servicing Guide.pdf

    • Hi Jeffie and welcome. With the Seikos you’ll fit right in   Have fun and chat away.
    • Thailand. I thought Mark mentioned Taiwan in one of his videos and perhaps mistook it as a joke. I've not traveled much.  Been in the Rome airport a few times and spent a few weeks in Greece, but never lived anyplace more exotic than Kansas City.  Living in the Ozark hills was culture shock.  You know how far I have to drive to buy anything like decent scotch?  It's a day trip!  I would love to see the U.K.  Give up my artillery and move there?  I don't think so. I suspect Mark is having at us.  I suspect he has made so much money off of us he has moved to a large country estate!
    • Hi, Im a new member and wanted to introduce myself. Ive been collecting watches for about 4 years and just fascinated about the watches themselves, the movements and the history of the brands. I own one of my grail watches as a gift to myself for being with the same company for 25 years. It is the Seiko emperor tuna sbdx014. All my other watches are lower mid tier watches. Mostly Seikos and a few micro brands. Thank you so much and looking so forward to learning from all of you Jeff
