About 20 years ago my closest friend,
we known each other since we were small kids, forty years ago,
said to me, when I first saw this clock on his office :
" It's nice to view, but it dosen't work. Can you fix it so it works,
you will get it for a bottle of whiskey!"
I took it home and saw an old movement that had abroken mainspring,
and was missing some parts.
But, I got a brilliant idea, and fixed it
Today it still works perfect keeping time exactly,
that's absolute true
It's quite charming.
isn't it ?
This is the backside.
And this is how I get it going.
Need some change every two years or so
It is not so elegant but you never open the back,
so it stands there and ticks perfectly
