VDO Boost gauge with tell tale needle bounce

I have a 1982 930 with a secondary VDO boost gauge in place of the clock. Over the past month I have noticed that when I come off boost the secondary boost gauge needle marks the tell tale and then the boost needle bounces back to zero. I'm not sure if there is a spring or something inside the gauge that should dampen needle bounce. The stock boost gauge below the tach is working fine...no bounce.

Also, does anyone know who can calibrate these gauges.

You could put... a clock in it! I know I just said it aloud.
