I'm having trouble finding the value on this particular clock that was given to me. It's battery operated (AA) and there are no numbers or stamps of any kind- on or inside the clock. The only thing I have is the name Tempus fugit on the front. Any information that you have will be very appreciated. I'm basically trying to figure out whether or not it's a true tempus fugit or a knock off. Is there anyway you can help????

Answer
Hi Jeni,

Tempus Fugit means "Time Flees." Your clock has a battery movement which means it is not a true mechanical movement. Compared to mechanical clocks this would be considered a "knock off" and really isn't worth that much money.

I don't do appraisals on line but the clock would not sell for more than $200 if in excellent and working  condition. You can look on ebay to see what they have sold for.

Hope this helps,

This is for advice only. ~Most~ repairs need a professional. If I can help you with an adjustment that can set your clock back in order I will try. I can not write a chapter on clock repair. I will point you in the right direction and you will have to do your own research on how clocks work for more intense repairs. -No Watches -No Appraisals. Search ebay for past sales for that information.
