Default Braun clock face

Hi
Had to dismantle this alarm clock because of a leaky battery ( what a mess !).
Is there a way to get the clear face off without damage so the hands can go back on ?
Thanks
Pete

Ah, I’ve got one of those! I think the plastic over the dial just pops off if you get a fingernail round the edge of it, the dial itself is just part of the main housing with the numbers printed directly onto it. If you happen to have one of those little sucker things to stick things to Windows they are quite good for pulling these sorts of things off.

Regards,
Lloyd

Iíve just had a look at mine, looks like 3 places where there are very small clips, one at 2, 6, and 10, it does require a bit of force to get it to come off.

Regards
Lloyd

On EBay for not at lot .If you are into changing screens on phones much better than the single sucker .It has an opening limit so when the screen comes free it doesn’t rip the flexi !
