I saved this clock from the bin men as it was going to be thrown out. It had a few faults, gong bracket broken, out of beat, minute hand retaining tapered pin missing and a bent nail was fitted instead.
the clock isn’t my cup of tea but my mate loves it so I told him he could have it for what it’s worth now it’s working again but I don’t know what that price would be
its a HAC clock made in Germany
I have always said the older you get (and more forgetful!!) the more info you need on your watch.
School years - no watch, time in any form does not matter.
Young age - its just for fashion and maybe the 'time' matters now and again. Or maybe a smart watch for all the other rubbish.
Prime working years - 'time and date' so you keep all those appointments, you know the days from your diary or when the weekend starts.
Later years and retirement - 'time, date and day' as you lose track of what day of the week it is, as well as the date.
Covid 19 - no watch just enjoy each day as it happens, you can't go anywhere and the missus will surely remind you of anything important !!
A success! I got the evertite crystal in, and the chapter ring nest perfectly. Here it is at the end of the day, cleaned, serviced, and reassembled. Thanks for everyone's help!
Could benefit from a fun tropic strap or nato (but don't have one on hand). Ended up messing up one of the lumed markets when soldering a dial foot, so ended up rubbing all of them off for a balanced, clean look. Will re-lume in the future once I get my hands on a kit
