New life from and old clock
08 May 2014
We have a large old quartz clock that we have had for some years. Lately, despite frequent battery changes, it loses time and after a few weeks stops. We like the clock so I ordered the quartz clock movement from Rapid to replace it. Getting the clock apart was quite difficult but removing and replacing the mechanism was straightforward. Our old clock is now as good as new.
Recycled old mantle-piece clock. Keeps good time.

I had a quaint looking old mantle-piece clock (not a valuable antique) whose clockwork mechanism had given up long ago. Giving it this mechanism transplant gave it a new lease of life and the time-keeping is as good as any of my other modern clocks. The kit has everything you need for the basis of making your own clock. However if you are refurbishing an old clock as I did, be prepared for some extra work attaching the original hands to the mechanism as older clocks had different hand mountings. Fear not, with diligence, glue, perspicacity and if all else fails a good sleep and another crack in the morning - well it worked for me - you will have a clock my son.
