Morning,

I recently bought this on eBay with the hopes of getting it restored back to its former glory. (Only cost me a fiver, so not going to cry if I can't)
The seller claims that everything is there, and looking at all of the pieces I think so too, though I'm no expert. I've added pictures below, I apologise if they're massive I don't have the time right now to re-size!

Any help would be greatly appreciated; age, movement, wind up or not, even value when complete? I'm taking it to a professional this weekend as I'm not even attempting to do it myself.

Thanks in advance, though one thing I am confused about is that date dial. There's no hole to see the date in the dial, random piece of metal?

Interesting. Looks like it would be fixed with a pointer or window rotating around it. Ask the seller if it is original to the clock. I can't see how but one never knows.

I think you got a piece that does not belong to that collection of parts.

My suggestion is you go back to ebay and buy a Luxor alarm clock
with a pre-assembled movement. I think that might cost you a lot
less at the clock maker, unless they think getting a pile of parts will
save them some time.

For example I found this one on ebay currently at $20.
We are not selling anything here. I will give you the link. --> Luxor
