    Lovely new Metamec

    Yay, I’m super happy with this 50s / 60s mechanical Metamec from eBay - great retro styling and runs beautifully. Just sharing a pic.

    Cool desk clock! I like the hands and sector dial a lot. Interesting cabinet shape too. Nice find!

    Nice clock, thanks for sharing.
    You could add a strap and call it an invicta...:)

    Yeah, it’s great - ridiculously accurate and runs for around 28 hours on a full wind. It cost me £14 plus 3.90 shipping so it’s a wonderful bargain. I think it’ll be worth a quartz conversion when the movement dies. Meanwhile, l’ll enjoy the noisy tick when my family are all out!

    Neat retro vibe. Hands, fonts and case shape look cool, seems to be well kept too.

    By the way, I don’t suppose anybody knows the expected life of the movements in these clocks? It’s around 60 years old so I’m wondering how often to run it.

    Well, I don't know the answer to the question--BUT, it has lasted 60 years, and is still keeping accurate time, so that would suggest that it probably has at least few more years of life left--great looking clock!!

    How long’s a piece of string? It might last a week or another 60 years so just run it all the time and enjoy it. TBH when I was a kid they made things to last.
