My parents gave me a 400 day clock for Christmas in 1968, when I was 13 years old. It is a Schatz miniature, dated 5 56 (May 1956) on the back, indicating that it is 13 months younger than I am. The clock came with a spare suspension unit, which I immediately installed, and the clock started working. The clock has been with me all these years. A few years ago, I took it apart for movement cleaning and bezel polishing, and a few months ago I polished and lacquered the outer part of the base to make it more photogenic. The separate base center cover has a nice patina so I left it alone. (The red ring around the base is a reflection of the red background.)
