Like most,I like original stuff. Picked up this clock body off eBay cheap.

Had a bad motor on it,movement was working,but had some issues.so.....l. Did a little wet sanding,got a movement from Craig osbeck(a clock movement) picked up a brand new synchron motr on eBay for 12 bucks and wound up with this.

Now the hard part....finding a face,bubble and second hand. Made by dualite . I love it when stuff cleans up well!

Aside from attempt at toilet humor & getting back on track, I remember when I was buying alot of clocks (most Coca-Cola) and doing the same thing...SURGERY. back in the 80's there weren't as many suppliers of electric clock parts and the internet wasn't around.
If I'm not mistaken, I still have a few clocks that aren't working because of this...too bad I didn't label them! shocked

That is a cool looking body Mick. I think I have the same one or very similar one somewhere. I'll try to dig it out and get a few photos. Looks like you got the works correct so far. Looks good. What is the diameter of the parts you need? Do the face and dome just sandwich in there?
