Jauch clock movement requirements

Jauch clock movement requirements for replacing the clock movement. These are the simple things needed to be done that is unique to the typical installation instructions for a three weight floor clock movement installation. Some of the things listed may not even be an issue as your clock dial may already be attached to the wood case instead of being locked into the movement. Also on the larger conversions with a rectangle movement, there is no added weight require for the chime side like it required on the smaller square units.

  • The dial must be attached to the case rather than the movement. There is a 50/50 chance really, sometimes the dial is attached to the case and sometimes it is attached to the movement with dial feet. If it's attached to the movement then you will need to unscrew or chop off the dial feet and attach it to the wood case instead.
  • The replacement for the Jauch clock movement would have to be shimmed higher (Included)
  • New lead weight would be installed into the existing right hand chime weight shell. (Included)
  • The top hook on the pendulum will have to get swapped (Included)
  • The pendulum may or may not have to get shortened. If the clock is too slow, even with the bob all the way up, the pendulum stick must get cut 1 1/2 inches shorter.
  • If you need assistance on replacing the Jauch clock movement you can call 800-381-7458
  • If this does not work out for you and you have the original packaging so it can be resold as new, you can return this kit for a refund.
  • NOTE: The moon dial will no longer function on your clock with this new conversion. It will not spin around like it did, you will need to look outside and see what the moon is doing instead.

Jauch Mechanical Clock Movement Availability

Jauch Mechanical Clock Movement Availability is zero as they are out of business and nothing is made. However there is still hope for a replacement unit, only if it is a three weight driven movement.

The Hermle clock movements are of equivalent quality and size and have the same functions. These conversion kits are only good for the three weight Jauch floor clock movements. If your Jauch movement is anything other than this it will have to be repaired instead, please email us to set up a repair to [email protected] . If you do have the three weight Jauch movement then your on the correct path to get your clock running again with a brand new Hermle movement conversion kit as described.

If you do have a three weight chain driven movement, made by Jauch, we can do the conversion. However there are some simple things to do for this to happen. The dial has to be attached to the wood case instead of the movement itself this is not hard and is explained. The top hook of your wood stick pendulum would be swapped out (provided). New hands are needed with your new movement (provided). Simple things like this will make the conversion possible and easy to do.

Why Replace - Jauch Clock Movement

Why Replace - Jauch Clock Movement if the movement is still in production it is the best solution all around. The movement will be brand new and ready to run another 30 years without much complaint. The new unit will come already oiled and with instructions. Comes with chains, leader, suspension, so this is everything that comes out with the two screws underneath. Less the dial, weights, chimeblock, pendulum of course, but the movement itself only.

If the clock kept time in the past and has somehow stopped keeping proper time beyond the adjustments of the pendulum, it is time for a new

The new movement is much easier to get parts for. You can upgrade the pendulum to a metal Lyre style if you choose where this is not possible for the Jauch unit.

The movement can be replaced again in another 25-30 years as the conversion movements are still available. If anything were to ever happen to the dial, hands, gong, weights or pendulum, then you can get all this new. It costs less than a repair especially considering a repair would have to be done every 5 to 8 years. A new movement is cheaper than an overhaul, it will last longer, and is faster and easier.

New Mechanical Movement Reasons

New Mechanical Movement Reasons to get the new one when we can just repair the old one? The reason is because it is still in production. Its still made in mass production in Germany, so this means its available for a lot less cost. Even the best repair job from the best repair professional, cannot make it as good as a new one.

New Mechanical Movement Reasons are because it can ship from USA the same day you order it. The time it takes you to get you're clock up and running is very short. A repair can usually take months and then you are still left with a used overhauled movement rather than a new one.

When you receive a new movement it is the same as you're old movement. All clock component parts such as weights will fit on to the new movement. The cost of a new movement is less and when it's installed it should last another 25-30 years without intense service. Over the years, if there is improvements that can be done on the movement, the factory updates them. We here at Clockworks offer only the highest grade mechanical clock movements and they come with a 2 year warranty.

Conclusion

The new unit will cost less and ship now. It will be far better in every way than getting the old one restored. You will have a new movement in days instead of the used one back in months.

Jauch clock movement conversion

Jauch clock movement conversion is the best thing to do if it is possible. These are available only for the three weight floor clock models. If you have spring driven Jauch clock movement, there is no replacement and a overhaul of the movement is the only option. If this is your current situation please email some pics of the clock movement to [email protected] and we can quote you for a professional restoration instead. The Jauch to Hermle conversion requires some basic tools. It is not a plug and play unit, there are some simple things required to do this conversion.

  1. The Hermle conversion kit is equipped with the movement, shims, seat board screws, hands, and pendulum hook.
  2. Attach the dial to the clock case if it is not already attached. It cannot have the feet going out of the back of the clock dial, some have these posts / feet that lock into the movement instead of just being attached to the wood clock case with some screws. If this is your situation, to use your old clock dial with the new movement it will be needed to remove these posts on the back of the dial somehow. Sometimes they unscrew, sometimes you can just bend them over and they will snap off. After removing these posts, you would just drill small holes in the dial corners and screw it to the case somehow. This will be on your end to dream of a way to attach the old dial on the clock case.
  3. Install the old moon gear on the new Hermle movement if you have a moon dial. This phase of the moon gear will usually fit the new movement fine and work the moon dial, but this is not always the case. Sometimes on rare occasions you may lose the moon phase function. There is not many people that I know that really look at there clock to know when its a full moon anyway, but you maybe the exception.
  4. Make certain the movement is in beat. On the back of the movement, the leader and crutch must move the same distance to the right of the handshaft as it does to the left. If it does not, push the leader and crutch to one side until they are equal.
  5. Install movement on the shims provided, lightly tighten the seat board screws. Install the Hermle pendulum hook on the stick.
  6. When adjusting the hammer wires, lift the hammer, and using the thumb, index and middle fingers, form a “V” to bend the middle portion of the wire in the direction needed. Hammers should be about 1/8” from the rods while at rest and they must hit squarely on the rods. Several adjustments may be necessary for best results.
  7. Level the clock side to side and front to back solidly on the floor.
  8. Install pendulum on leader.
  9. Install weights on the clock with the heaviest weight on the right as you look at the clock.
  10. Install the hands on the clock in the following manner: Place the minute hand on the clock and turn it slowly until the movement chimes the hour. Remove the minute hand. Place the hour hand on the clock pointing to the number that indicates the number of times the clock just struck. With pliers, grasp the hub on the minute hand and turn the hub to reorient the square bushing on the minute hand. Repeat until the minute hand slides onto the movement arbor at the 12 o’clock position.
  11. Lowering the pendulum by one turn of the rating nut to the left will slow the clock by about one minute per day.
