Operation of this clock

Jan 15, 2023,10:32 AM

Hello everyone, I got this beautiful clock from someone who couldn't do anything with it anymore. I've had this clock for (about) a year now. He has always worked and from one day to the next which he no longer does. I assumed the battery was dead. I then neatly opened the back by the four screws loosen with the correct bit. You only see a plate with the vibrating membrane of the alarm clock??? You also see four screws again that I also unscrewed and then the glass frame at the front comes loose and then the dial is completely exposed. I immediately put it back neatly because I don't know where the battery is. And now I ask myself the question, does it have a battery, or how does this clock work. I hope someone can help me, because I think this is a beautiful piece and I think it's a shame that he no longer does.

Dag Eddy, zelf kan ik je niet helpen, misschien kan je eens een foto doorsturen van de klok in geopende toestand. Ook moet ik je er op wijzen dat dit een puur Engelstalig forum is, misschien eens re-posten in het Engels ? Groetjes, Filip

Most table clocks like this are battery operated.
