I was going to say the soldering on the back of the dial looks like something I would of done when I was 13 with my dads electrical soldering iron, and the dial does not look square with the base, but they have both been commented on.
The pendulum rod looks ultra fine too, which I'm guessing is correct,but what diameter rod is used?
I have to agree with the previous speakers it seems this piece have met the floor at some stage and been fixed by a Quick and Dirty method. the left side is all of center with the right from top to toe only the stand is uniform.
Just out of curiousity, how common was it to solder the dial on like that, i understand by the looks of the work it wasn't a very good repair but still was it common practice?
Not long been back from Thailand. Love the place. Been 3 times now. Did Island hopping, lot of sea fishing - fresh fish with Thai food every day. The fish we caught we gave excess to t he locals and t he hotel chef cooked meals for 4 for 300Bhat.
Cool! Have a great holiday Mark.
