Thought everyone would like to see this great estate sale find I came across and purchased recently. It was in the closing hours when I got there and saw this sitting on a desk. I opened the battery compartment and say a 2005 EverReady AA in there. The clock was not working so I figured for a dollar it was worth a shot to see if a new battery would get it working. I took it home, cleaned the contacts and popped in the battery. the second hand moved..but did not sweep, kind of staying in one place. A little tap on the desk and it started sweeping and has kept perfect time ever since. The alarm also works. It measures 4 long x 2 wide x 1-1/4 deep.
I think it is from the 60's as the styling and Japanese quartz movement might indicate, though I am not sure.
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks for looking
