That's what I'm hoping. I'd like to keep the tambor door but if it's worn out or broken I might have to do something different. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can clean things up to be good as new.

Don, I honestly don't know. Maybe Fred would have a better feel for whether the clock is original to the coach.

I'm not sure what to do about it since some of the numerals are missing. If it was intact I'd leave it. I'll spend some time looking for either the missing numerals or something that can be put in it's place.

Here's a source for the numerals: Klockit - Inserts & Dials, Numerals.

As far as the works go, I like this one: Seiko High Torque Continuous-Sweep Mini Quartz Movement. It's a little pricy ($13.99 including your choice of a set of hands vs. as low as $3.25 for the plain movements), but the continuous sweep means that the second hand moves smoothly around like an AC powered clock instead of once a second. Most importantly, that means that it doesn't go "clunk!" every second. I've retrofitted this movement into my hand on the wall clock and the quiet is a huge improvement. Well worth the price.

Vaughn, thanks for the links!

They have several dial faces that would be a good replacement for the numbers currently existing and the continuous movement clock is definitely the only way to go.

Thanks!

Brad
