This is a very nice example of an early Simplex Time Recorder (Punch Clock).
I am in the process of a restoration on this clock. The job will not involve much work to the cabinet. As the case is in reasonable condition, refinishing will not be required. The movement and time recording mechanism will take most of my attention.
As you can see by the photos, the face is in bad condition. This is one part of clock work that has to be done by a specialist, in this case the dial has been sent to The Dial House in Georgia.
I will post the after photos once the clock face is finished…… Check back soon!
With the clock face removed, note the massive movement and main springs required to power the clock and the time recording mechanism.
