Hello Mr. Saunders,
My wife has  a Sessions clock that has been passed down in her family. I think it's a mantle clock and the partial label on the rear door has a model # of what I think reads "654". It has one key with it and we tried to wind it, but the key wouldn't turn at all. I manually moved the hands forward to the correct time, and it works for less than an hour before it begins to fall behind and eventually stops, although it does not chime the correct # of times at the hour. The clock is missing its front clear cover(the ring is still there) and the face is very worn. Most of the finish is in bad shape as well. I would like to repair or restore the clock for its sentimental value and don't know where to start. Is it better to just get it working and leave the original appearance or is it advisable to fully restore it? Do you think it could be fixed and/or restored at a reasonable price?, if so could you recommend a place? I live in the Daytona Beach, FL. area. I have sent some pictures as well. I had some difficulty researching this online, I can't seem to find that model # anywhere. Any info you have on it would appreciated. Thank you,

see #0612 on this website:

Dutch people are not original and your case is slightly different.

can't tell if some of the case is missing or damaged on the left side in your photo??

you should be able to get the glass replaced and the movement overhauled locally for about $300-400   I would just start there and leave the dial and case as is.

His responses were clear, addressed my questions and concerns in a way that even I could understand, and even sent a picture. He explained what I had and how to resolve the issue. I was amazed at how quickly he replied to each on my e mails. He shouldn't get a gold star, he should get a whole box of them!!! Thank you Mr. Saunders, I will keep you on my e-mail "speed dial". Comment - Ken answered my question regarding how to adjust the proper striking of the hammers on my Grandfather clock within a few minutes of my sending the question to him. He answered my follow-up question the next morning. I would rate him higher if there was a number larger than ten in the selection box. Thanks again Ken Comment - I RECEIVED AN ANSWER WITHIN AN HOUR.OUTSTANDING SERVICE.YOUR RATING SHOULD BE HIGHER THAN 10.

Kenneth really knows his stuff, he has the knowledge about where you can buy replacement parts and where to get repair service or do it yourself.

Thank you Kenneth for responding so fast and making me feel so confident in repairing my own clock. I vote Kenneth Volunteer of the Year.
