    Hi

    I’ve managed to find a guy to provide me with some white dial fronts cheaply as long as I can send my original dials off to have templates made from .

    I have taken the other dials apart without an issue , but the actual time telling clock is giving me a headache .

    Here’s a pic of the front of the clock , anyone ever opened one up from behind , and released the actual clock from its housing ?

    Cheers

    Malc

    Well if it's not obvious from the rear, all I know is the hands are typically a push fit on most clocks and that one looks like it has a suspiciously large centre cover. Maybe it's hiding the face fitting.

    It’s not the hands I want to remove , it’s the outer dial , but moving hands may be the answer if there’s a nut underneath holding the face on :drunk:

    Yes, that's what I am suggesting...
