Clock face

Recommended Posts

I have just purchased a Westminster chime mantel clock. This is my first resto and I have no idea how to determine which model it is and where I might find spare parts including a new click face. I can add pictures but not right now. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Pictures will help. If you are needing to replace the dial and glass, as a unit, be aware that new ones are sold in millimetres. The old dials are measured in  inches. And are not a direct swap.

Thanks for your help, when I finally work out how to add pictures I will add them to this conversation. What I can tell you is The click dual has holes for the winding the click up above the 4,6 & 8 numbers and a slot next to the three for turning the chimes on and off. From websites I have visited there are some disks that are close to what I have but they don't have the holes in the right places. Do I have to make the holes myself?

Regards

Usually you have to drill the winding holes, only the centre is pre drilled.
