I am writing a letter to seek your help to repair a famous cuckoo style clock in Hong Kong.
My name is Benny Ho a local Hong Kong people. There is a JESCO (now called AEON) shop in Quarry Bay and it has a Joker cuckoo style clock. The clock was built since the JESCO shopping mall was opened in 1987. This clock is beautiful, funny and elegant.
The cuckoo style clock consists with two compartment. On the top, there is sleeping Joker, then he is sitting on a big rectangular shape clock. The Joker will wake up on hourly basis, then the clock face will be opened and showing some happy dwarfs playing with the gears inside the clock. The duration of this funny scene is about 3 minutes. Then the clock face will be closed and the Joker fall in sleep again. Children were fascinated to the operation and the tricks under the clock face.
However, the “cuckoo” function has been stopped since early 2000s. Now the clock is showing time only. No more music to play, no more happy dwarfs to see. The Joker is in deep sleep.
Many local resident wrote letters to JESCO and AEON shop manager to ask him to repair the clock. Sadly to know that, claimed by the manager, there was no spare parts available to conduct repair works in Hong Kong.
SEIKO, can you help us and AEON?
