    Red face So what do you think of my old clock?

    Haha... random one I know, but seeing as I'm only 23 and seem to of turned into David Dickinson...

    Wondered what people think of my little project. Found an old 60's Junghans double weight, pendulum wall clock at an antiques store in Germany. Cost a heavy ten euros and needed a refurb.

    Loads of wood oil, hours with the brasso and figuring out how to 'set' a pendulum on a weighted clock (I see why they use batteries now) I got her in a like new condition... but still unsure on if I like it...

    Wanted something old but retro to mix in with the new brown leather couch and old cabinet & modern styled solid oak TV unit we ordered in...

    So opinions wanted on if its a keeper... saw a similiar one in lesser condition going for 100 euros so either way I am on a winner

    Something I have been fascinated with for many many years, Time pieces. I have a KGB Pocket Watch. No doubt it is a counterfeit though. But it has fond memoeies for me.
    I have a napoleon clock, a copy made in Germany as I belive we could not make enough of them here.
    In Ausust last year I was winding it up, and the main spring broke. The key span round in reverse, and ripped my thumb nail off. It is about 80% grown back now. I was supprised in the strenght in the spring. The clock is now being repaired by one of my mates who Specializes in repairing clocks.
