This Schatz 1000 day clock is dated 3 57 (March 1957) on the back of the movement.

Schatz introduced their 1000 day clock in 1954. There are two case styles: round base with glass or plastic dome, and rectangular base with brass cover having glass or plastic panels. A 1000 day clock can be identified by the “54” in a circle on the back of the movement.

Why 1000 Day Clocks Run So Long

The Schatz 1000 day clock is based on Schatz’s miniature 400 day clock movement. A larger mainspring, with about 2.5 times the amount of energy storage, is used, but the gears (except for the barrel and second wheel) and escapement (except that the anchor has a longer arbor) are the same. The pendulum makes 10 rotations per minute.

    Can anyone tell me what a clock like this is worth? I have one that my father bought in Germany in 1957.

    I have that same clock and was wondering the value of it as well. Did you find anything out?

    Our Schatz clock on the back movement has a 10 55 and in a circle it has a 54
    with A Schatz and Sons Germany-- - So you know what the value might be?
