Clocks, Watches/not working
Why doesn't this Colonial Grandmother, circa.1976, Hermle 451-053 not work? Got it to work a while out of case. Oiled all points. No thorough cleaning done. Sat for years unused. That little rocker switch at the top: Does that have a dual function like nudge forward then brake on pend. return?
Since your clock has sat for years unused it undoubtedly is gummed up and at a minimum requires a thorough cleaning. Quite frankly I would not waste my time and resources to have such services performed. I beleive it far more cost effective to simply buy a new replacement movement. You would end up with a better clock than you started with. And, save money to boot. Regards WJP
