Probably start with a search for clock. Save the kittens.

I used a small screwdriver to carefully pry up the outer bezel. You only need to go halfway as it can then pop off. Slide the inners out. The most common failure is the contacts on the winding relay. Use some fine sandpaper or contact file to clean up. Also use a small model paintbrush to clean up the mechanism. I hooked up my clock to a 12v battery to test. it would work for a while, then stop. I tried 2 different clock shops as the problem was with the mechanical portion and not the electrics. So I cleaned the gear bearing areas with some alcohol and then used a drop of light oil. I just need to get the speed adjusted now.

fitted to early clocks - had it done on a 911 clock years ago, completely eliminated the intermittent problems with the electro-mechanical movement. Might be worth checking with North Hollywood Speedo or Palo Alto Speedo.......

Besides, you shouldn't be driving if you use your dash clock to check your lap times!
