Jauch Clock Conversion Dial Instructions
If the dial attaches to the movement with four posts coming off the back of, this will have to change.
Clock moon dial mounting
There are two ways the dial mounts to the clock. The best scenario for the conversion is to have the dial attach to the wood case. It will have no interaction with the movement at all except if there is a moon phase.
The other half of the time the dial may mount to the movement via four posts on the back.
Dial feet removal if necessary
The reason is the new movement will not have the holes in the front plate to clip the dial on the movement. Some posts unscrew and some snap off but in some situations you can even use bolt cutters.
Dial back board removal option
A different way is to remove that back blind plate that the face attaches to for the Jauch clock movement conversion. That is the plate the bolts stick out of and is separate from the fancy front face.
They screw or rivet in so just see how it mounts and reverse that method. The risk in doing it this way is bending or scratching the face when doing this. Also if screws or rivets come out it leaves holes in the front face appearance.
The dial makes the clock
The dial is what is seen all the time. Its what makes the clock so to speak. So treat the dial well and try not to scratch it up during the conversion. If all goes south we do offer them for the movement kit to replace it.
Jauch Clock Dial Conversion - Handling the Dial
When handling shiny parts like the weights and the dial use gloves to avoid touching the shiny part with the hands. The oils from the skin will eventually make black marks on anything shiny. In addition, these are not delicate but if the corners get hit they curl up and even with correction does not look good.
So just do not let it hit the ground and to not touch the shiny parts with the skin.
Jauch Clock Dial Conversion Moon Phase Interaction
In either situation the moon phase will no longer function if using the dial that is currently on the clock. If insistent on the phase of the moon turning a new dial will have to be bought for the new movement.
There is only a handful of customers that are very insistent they have the moon disk spin and usually no one looks at it anyway.
