Smiths Car Clocks

Post by Tomaselli » Mon Oct 13, 2014 7:35 pm

Anybody know where or how to convert the old analogue internals to a quartz movement.

I have just bought the correct clock, which amazingly works, but would like a quartz movement in. I have a quartz movement in my other clock (though not correct one for MK2) and has been in the Tiger for years, and the time keeping is fantastic. I don't really want to bastardise that one, too good for that.

Must be a company out there that converts the internal movements.

Cheers

have you tried John Ostick? I've used him for my clock, calibrating speedometer and upgrading rev counter to accurate electronic internals.

Does a quartz movement make the car faster?
