    I would get this but my car doesn't have a clock. So i would need the lens/pins/case for OEM clock to use this.

    yes, papanoel, you are right.
    I designed the clock as replacement for the original case.
    I have to look into it, if I can also design a case/lens and pins,
    that are close to the original, but I don't think that will happen
    in the near future, sorry.

    I would also be interested in one! I'm tired of losing the correct time every time I disconnect my battery. My display has been misbehaving too.

    Do you just need the green lens or the whole case?

    You'll need the case per his below post:

    Here's some information and answers to your questions.

    Yes, you need the OEM case and lid and the hours/minutes
    adjustment pins. I have designed the clock
    to fit into the original case. Since I had to replace the
    clock and the case is still fine in my car.
    You can also re-use the original white plastic connector
    of the OEM clock by sliding out the old female jackets and
    inserting the ones of the new clock in the right order.
    That's the way I did it.

    Yes, it has a backup battery designed in on the PCB.
    (You have to insert a coin cell battery before installing
    into the console.) The clock is working with this coin
    cell (CR1216, CR1220, CR1225), only, since the RTC on board
    requires a back up, if the main power supply "fails".
    Not installing a battery will result in not proper running
    of the clock.
    This will also be the case, if the battery will be empty and
    needs replacement.

    For further information I attached a brief report on how I
    created the clocks.

    If we go on a first come first serve basis the clocks
    will go to:
    1. GS450-Junkie
    2. iflights
    3. powerline84

    Could you guys just write me a PM to clarify on how we
    will do next steps?

    I am sorry for "r00b", but I have no clocks left anymore.
    I would suggest, if the others like them, I can create
    some more (if still needed).

    Hope these answers are helpful.Attachment 49627

    Any further questions or feedback, please let me know.
