FYI... That was sarcasm.
Are the coils and points intact?
That is the important stuff.
If the coils are not smoked or the
points fused together or missing,
it could be worth some money.
The cosmetics are minor and these clocks
are hard to find. You usually get the "look"
with a quartz replacement.

Hi chargis1973,

If the price is right and the mechanism inside is good ...
ideal of 2 clocks 1 well to do or small insert painting black and a good/new lens on it, done.
Maybe a good buy ... don't forget it's also 40 years old!

All missing items can be useful, here in Europe are very hard to find parts ...

Greetings from Belgium,

My clock works.

Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
The original clocks used a set of points similar to distributor points that, when closed, charge
a couple of coils turning them into electromagnets. The "magnets" then activate a hammer that
rewinds the mainspring until it ticks down and again closes the points which fires the coils, etc.
The problem is eventually the points fuse together or simply break off. If the points fuse together
the coils gets full battey power and melt. A friend built a circuit board that uses capacitors to fire
the coils when the points close. No full battery power and the points only act as a switch to trigger
the capacitor bank.
