Question
I have a Schatz Barometer with Schatz ship's bell 8 day, 7 jewels that does not work. Is there a way to repair it without sending to Germany, I am in Texas.
Same problem with a Barigo quartz ship's Bell

Answer
The old Schatz ship's bell movements are difficult to repair and parts are not available. You might be able to find someone in the states who can do it for you but I honestly don't know anyone I can refer you to.
The quartz ship's bell movement is even worse. I don't know who would work on it and nobody makes a replacement movement anymore.
Sorry,
Michael
