Familie'en Philbert's Matra

My clock has stopped working. It had been intermitent for a long time, so today I took it apart and found that an extremely tiny wire on the coil inside, has broken, I do not see any way to fix it, since it comes from the inside windings on the coil. No chance of just unwinding a few turns to have some wire to reattach. Angry

So is there any of you who have a clock left over from a scrapped Murena? and are you willing to part with it and at what price?

OOps. forgot that I am visiting Philbert, it is actually Jon who need the clock.

I may have a spare clock.  I will check out the loft and also try to find out if it is working!

If everything else fails I have one from the Murena we broke up for parts with Waldo a coupe of years ago.
I will have to check it though, as I have no idea if it works or not.

Got a Kienzle clock of the same size that works. Strangely, the second hand moves at a smooth rate, rather than jumps per second like the original. Huh

On slight problem was that it was meant to be mounted vertical. So I took them both apart and swapped the dial over from the original. they were not quite the same size and the light was in a different location, but the adjustment knob was the same.

To make the original dial fit, I had to remove the plastic taps that held the new dial. Then I glued the old dial onto the plate and assembled everything.

Works great and looks good. Grin

Good to know.  Smiley
At the time I replaced mine I could not find one that matched exactly.
