Numbers falling off face of clock
(Cranberry Twp PA)
My husband went to wind our clock as he always does, (had it about 16 yrs).
All of a sudden the 1 fell off of the noon, then the 2 went, then the 1 and then the other 2.- 4 numbers!
We were quite shocked at this.
Then we bought some glue to put them back on and more fell off!
Fortunately, he managed to get the rest back up but now there are smudge marks on our face from such a delicate procedure.
We did not even know who could have helped us with this.
Is this a common problem with a clock at this age and if so any remedies suggestions as we are not sure this could happen with the rest of the numbers that have yet to fall off?
