Good Questions: Plug to Battery Clock Solution?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I love this clock.

Does anybody have any advice on how to turn a clock with an electrical cord into one that is battery operated?

Thanks, BF

Dear BF,

We DON’T have an exact answer, but we suspect it requires gutting the back of the clock and installing a simple new battery driven motor to the hands. None of this seems too hard, except for attaching the clock hands to the new motor spindle. That could be a little bit of work.

Anyone else??
