Hermle clock movements include these clock parts, the cables and pulleys, or chains, the leader, and suspension spring. This is everything that comes out when you remove the two screws that are under the clock movement, besides the dial and weights.
Once the hands and the clock dial out of the way (instructions are sent via email) it's only a matter of removing the two screws from underneath. The new clock movement can then be put in by someone with experience in 10 or 15 minutes. A person with no experience will take longer, but the point is that it isn't hard to do. This is definitely a new clock movement benefit. There are some instances where a clock case was made in an annoying way that makes it more difficult, but for clock movements that were in a mass production this is not the situation. This relates more to a few individual clockmakers who's design of the case makes it more tricky to get the new clock movement in or out.
A new clock movement is typically less than half the cost of an overhaul. It will also be on its way to the customer instantly instead of months later. A new clock movement will last the longest of any other choice.
Urgos clock movements are still available if the clock takes three weights. The others are no longer available so we offer conversion kits that can be used. A new clock movement is a factory fresh restart.
The clock will be like it was originally when it was purchased from the store. The new clock movement will be made by the same people, with the same machines, and the clock movement is the same. It is not a close replica or made somewhere else besides Germany. It is the same movement. Not a knock off or replica. So wouldn't it make sense to get the new clock movement instead of chasing the old? The choice is clear and obvious. The new movement will cost a fraction of the price and the clock is up and running in no time.
Kieninger clock company is out of business as of this year 2020. Get the movement needed while supplies last. Every time the movement needs to have work done on it or needs bushings, it will last less and less time before it needs attention again. A new movement will out last any repair and would cost a fraction of the price.
The repair process is expensive because it takes time to separate the plates, remove all the gears, do the necessary work, and then put them all back together again. This process may need to be redone if not perfect the first time. The turn around time to complete an overhaul on a clock movement could be anywhere from 1 to 3 months, and in some extreme cases, a year. It is a slow moving venture that costs twice as much as a new movement would. If a new clock movement is not available, then this is the best, and only, way to handle a clock repair.
The robust and compact mini quartz movements fit in small spaces but are strong enough to run long hands. Used for creating clocks or to replace existing units in clock repair. Please select the post length when ordering a new quartz clock movement. Of course, when doing quartz clock movement measuring, remember the post will need to be able to go through the thickness of the dial face.
The dial may or may not have a wood backing to it. With a wood backing the clock dial or face would be thicker and thus would need a longer post. Clockworks offers multiple post lengths on quartz clock movements for this reason. In other words, the post has to be long enough to go through whatever thickness we are calling the dial.
Chiming quartz movements that play Westminster or other chime options. Some have an ANSO feature that will not play at night. These Chiming quartz movements will run a light weight pendulum that is 16 inches at longest.
The back of the pendulum rod has notches each inch up the rod, so all that is required is to bend and snap at the desired length. The ppendulum comes with its round pendulum bob for the bottom swinging portion. This pendulum bob is available in three diameters. The pendulum with its bob is a separate purchase.
A clock insert is a complete clock that fit into a hole by friction fit only. It is the easiest of the clock making hobby as all you have to do it have a hole in something to make a clock out of it. In other words, drill a hole into any object and just push the clock insert into it.
The clock insert alone will be too loose of a fit so there is a rubber ring on the back side to fill the gap. Sometimes the rings will break or get lost and a simple solution is a rubber band. Slide a rubber band on the backside of the insert and you are good to go! It ends up being a nice fit with some tolerance in the hole diameter requirement.
These are complete clocks that fit into a hole. It is the easiest of the clock making hobby as all you have to do it have a hole in something to make a clock out of it.
Electric clock motors are sometimes hard to get or even to figure out what one is needed. We offer only the most common electric clock motors that are still on the market. In the 1920's through the 1950's there were many mechanical clocks that had an electric motor to run them. Unfortunately most of those wonderful electro-mechanical shelf clocks have parts that are no longer available. Some of those units were very impressive, combining the electrical motor with a quality brass movement. This then eliminated the requirement of winding the clock for it to function.
If an obsolete antique electric clock motors is needed, all you can do is throw the clock trash usually. It maybe possible to find someone to rebuild the coil if that is the issue. We at clockworks.com do not perform such service however. We found it is often unsuccessful and would need to charge way to much for this to happen. In the end the clock would still be left with a motor that is old and worn. This is found not to be a viable long term solution and ultimately a waist of money.

The most common Cuckoo repair parts sold is the bellow tops and the hands. The bellow tubes are usually good to reuse on the clock, just the bellow tops have cloth that rip over time and therefore the clock will not cuckoo the time out.
If the movement is worn out and is post 1950 its just as well to get the new one instead of restoring the old one. The process of the movement restoration is time consuming and therefore expensive. When the new movement is 100-200 dollars and will last alot longer than the best restoration.

Anniversary clocks are also called 400 day clocks because they are usually wound once a year on a holiday such as an anniversary. The suspension spring on the clock needs to be replaced if its kinked or distorted. The suspension spring is the part on the back of the clock that supports the pendulum balls in the air.
This is almost always the fist issue to deal with to get the clock running. This happens when someone is not familiar with the clock and they move it from here to there with the pendulum getting knocked around and the suspension spring gets twisted and kinked.
Anniversary clocks are also called 400 day clocks because they are usually wound once a year on a holiday such as an anniversary. Yes we have the suspension springs.
