Just picked up a really nice TZ - guy I got it from has had it in his home for the last 18 years, not sure where it was before that but it's quite nice.

As I was going through it I just realized the clock is MISSING. I know this doesn't effect the gameplay, but doesn't the clock show you a certain amount of time remaining? I'm not overly familiar with the gameplay on this, but that's what I seem to remember.

I'm most likely going to sell the game, but not sure if I should try finding another clock or just leave it as is.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

The clock is an integral part of the game.

I know clock boards and clock housing is available. But I'm not sure about the rest of it. Missing unavailable parts lower the value of the game tremendously. I'd suggest trying to track down those parts and get a working clock before trying to sell it. My guess is without a clock its worth $1500 less.

Okay, appreciate the insight. Kind of a shame as the game is really nice. I'm seeing some parts around for the clock, but I suppose it's near impossible to find a unit that's all good to go. I saw Marco had is listed for Refference.

Guess I'll be on the lookout or sell as is

Aren't there enough aftermarket parts available to build one from scratch? seems like the only part questionably available would be the bottom mounting bracket, which could probably be fabricated.

OP- snap a photo of the area where the clock goes- maybe the mounting bracket is there, but no clock assembly

Joke here: Sell it as a Twilight Zone Pro Edition model

If you find one... expect to pay around 400.

Hi,

I have a new in the box complete assembly for $500.00 + shipping. I have pictures of the sealed box and also one that is NOS out of the box that I can provide pictures if you like.

Thank you,
Rick

I was going to suggest 3D printing the gears/hands. I think the rest can be sourced? Could be fairly easy, could not be. I'm a DIY sadist and love challenges. Either way you're gonna spend a couple hundred dollars.

However, if I were you, I'd take Rick's kind offering above and finish off your very nice TZ with the NOS clock it deserves.

I agree as these things are unobtainium.

If you can make a wiring harness, the bracket is really the only thing that will be hard to find.
It's not impossible but before you do anything look for a bracket.

When I restored my TZ last year, I bought a new gear set and 2 new hands from Marco. Looks like they're out of stock now though....

I have these clock parts that I could sell you for a fair price.
PM me if you are interested
