Any idea on this clock was wondering if it's worth keeping need your opinion. I believe is missing a part on back to wind the clock.

    I think that the timepiece is actually wound from the front. (right about the first "A" in "Guaranteed") The stem sticking out in the back is to adjust the speed of the movement "F" for faster and "S" for slower. The mainspring looks intact so you'll need a properly sized clock winding key to wind the clock and something to adjust the speed (called regulating). It looks like a small screw driver would work on it. The movement also looks like it could use a good cleaning and oiling. Perhaps an overhaul if the bushings are worn out of round.

    Here's a list of key sizes based upon the winding arbor's measurement:
    All sizes in mm starting from small to large
    Key size........ American............ Swiss
    5/0.................. 1.6...................1.25
    4/0.................. 1.8 ..................1.5
    3/0.................. 2.0.................. 1.75
    2/0.................. 2.2.................. 2.0
    0...................., 2.4 ..................2.25
    1..................... 2.6.................. 2.5
    2..................... 2.8.................. 2.75
    3..................... 3.0.................. 3.0
    4..................... 3.2...................3.25
    5..................... 3.4.................. 3.5
    6..................... 3.6.................. 3.75
    7..................... 3.8.................. 4.0
    8..................... 4.0.................. 4.25
    9..................... 4.2.................. 4.5
    10................... 4.4 ..................4.75
    11................... 4.6.................. 5.0
    12................... 4.8.................. 5.25
    13................... 5.0.................. 5.5
    14................... 5.2.................. 5.75
    15................... 5.4.................. 6.0
    16................... 5.6.................. 6.25

    if theres a clock shop round odds are they would have a replacement key for it,..bring the clock and they can figure out the size pretty quick,..and probably not more than 8 bucks for it,..very cool piece!
  6. Bruce99 Bruce99, 12 months ago
    All you need to do is measure the width of the winding arbor. It has a square end. Once you have the width, you can use the chart to find the appropriate sized key. With that information you can buy a key anywhere. Ebay is always just a click away. You'll only need a single-end key. Stick with the American measurements. If you do take it to a local clock/watch shop. Ask them to look at the movement for you to determine if it needs maintenance. If you're going to run the clock, it will. If you're not going to run it, don't worry about the key. It's a nice decorative piece just as it is. Running it without a good cleaning, oiling and repair will just end up destroying the movement. Have fun with it and thanks for sharing.

    You know, your local watch/clock repair shop might be interested in buying this from you. It is an old advertising piece after all. They could restore it and put it back to work. :)
