Urgos clock movement - Why New?

Urgos clock movement - Why New is because new movement will last much longer than a repair ever would. It would usually cost less and be up and running in a very short time whereas a repair can take months. The new movement would be faster, cost less, and would last a lot longer. This is because a repair on the unit is a very time consuming process and the movement would be disassembled and reassembled for this. The only time you should have the movement serviced is if it is out of production and not available new, or it is a very high end movement such as a tubular bell if it makes economic sense to do so.

The Movement

The movement will come lubricated with clock oil already, so there is no need to oil it. The clock comes with its cables and pulleys or chains, comes also with the leader and suspension spring. This is everything that comes out when you remove the two screws that are under the movement. Once you get the hands and the clock dial out of the way (instructions included) its only a matter of removing the two screws that go up into the movement to secure it. The new movement can be swapped out by me in 10 or 15 minutes, so figure a little longer for some one who is not used to it, but it just shows its not that hard. There are some instances where someone created there own clock case, and built it sort of weird and it makes it tricky, but this is not so common.

Urgos clock movement - Why New? I think we pretty much covered it. Its less than half the cost of an overhaul typically, instant instead of months later, the longest lasting of the choices. So with that said, its time to get the numbers off of the back plate of the movement itself so we can match it up to the brand new clock movement.

  • Half the cost of a overhaul
  • Lasts twice as long as a overhaul
  • Get it now instead of months later
  • Comes with cables or chains
  • Already oiled and test ran
  • Comes with instructions and support

Urgos Clock Movement Identification

>Urgos Clock Movement Identification is done by getting to the back of the brass mechanical clock movement. Often there are side access panels to the clock if it is a floor clock. You can remove the side access panel and look inside with a flashlight to get the information off of the back plate. If you have a cell phone you can reach in and take a pic of the back of the movement to see the numbers also. Taking the movement right out of the case is an option as well, since you will be ordering a different one anyway. The numbers are located on the bottom of the back plate of the brass movement itself. Not on the paperwork or the clock case, only on the brass movement.

Urgos clock movements have changed numbering systems many years ago. What this means is the movement you have now may have some markings on it, such as UW32/1A, but this same unit is now called UW32319 as they have a new number for the exact same movement. If you have an old number style and need to convert to the new number, the movement has definitely lived its life span and it's time to replace it.

The old numbers to the new numbers can be confusing, an example being UW32/1 and UW32001 and UW32319 are all the same unit. Best to use the chart to figure out the new number and if it is not on the list, just give us a call or email to [email protected] and we will assist with the old to new Urgos Clock Movement Identification.

Urgos clock movement availability

Urgos clock movement availability is pretty good for the floor clock mechanical movements only. They no longer product any mantle or shelf spring driven clock movements such as the UW6/** series. The UW7/** series is also discontinued and what is left being made is the three weight floor grandfather - grandmother clock models. Even with a three weight clock movement made by Urgos does not completely mean its in stock with us. There are some units that are rendered obsolete such as some chain driven UW660** units and others.

These units that are no longer being made still have hope, we can usually create a new movement conversion to what is in production still. The conversion may require certain actions to be done such as getting a new dial with the new movement. In some situations we can provide the movement with an alternate CM length and customize your current pendulum to fit easy, things like this.

The new movement is definitely the way to go if at all possible. If the clock movement is 30 years old, its time to just swap it out. The reasons are listed in another section, but in short these are the reasons. The price is a fraction of the cost of an overhaul on the old one, ships now, lasts longer than any repair ever could. Even if the clock is sentimental which it often is, keep the case sentimental and not the clock movement.

Finding a Urgos Clock Movement - No Luck?

Finding a Urgos Clock Movement - No Luck getting one may mean it is no longer made. The UW6/** and the UW7/** units are no longer made, in fact the only movements made is the 3 weight floor models and even then its not 100%. If your lucky enough to find the new movement its best to buy it without thinking about it too much because it may not be available in the future. If your the owner of an obsolete clock movement we can still help you with a new unit, please email [email protected] with the numbers.

If your movement numbers match with the numbers we list here on Clockworks.com, just find the number and click the link to view and order the product. If your movement number is not on the above list we need to figure out what the new number is for your unit and if its still made. What the numbers used to be, are not the same on the new units although it is indeed the same clock movement.

To convert your three weight Urgos clock movement to the new number, please use the below chart to match what the movement used to be called to what it is now called by its new number, then order that new number with the above links.

If you have a / in the number, it’s definitely the old system and therefore an older movement which has lived its life as its over 40 years old. If it does not have a / it still may be the old numbering system as well. Either way, convert old number to the new and order the new unit with the above links.

One more thing about the old to new numbers: if the old numbers have a / in it, replace that / with one or sometimes two zeros if the / is in the middle of the old numbers. EXAMPLE: 32/1 is the same as 32001 and is the same as the converted number 32319. If there is a letter at the end like 32/1A, ignore the A and pretend it does not exist. Same with the 03 series, for example 3/12 is the same as 03012 and is the same as the new number 03096. Wow, huh? Confusing sometimes. Just call us if you like with the numbers and we can sort it out for you. 800-381-7458, if you get VM it only means we are already on the phone, we will call you right back. Our email address is [email protected] if you choose to do that instead.

Urgos UW7/ series clock movement

Urgos UW7/ series clock movement is a two weight small floor clock movement. These units were very popular in the 1970s, and that puts it over the life expectancy of being a 25 year movement by far. This means your left with a choice to replace the movement or get a new one. The choice is still obvious to get the new one for cost savings, speed and life expectancy. Even in this situation when the movement is not made, if you can get a conversion to a different maker it is still the best choice.

Urgos UW7/ series clock movement is no longer made and no longer available by Clockworks.com. However we can often convert these to an equivalent quality new German clock movement with ease. If you provide the movement numbers off of the unit and email this information to us at [email protected] we can see what we can do. It would help if you provide the length of the pendulum from tip to tip when its off of the clock. Also the length of the hands shaft from the front plate of the movement itself and all the way out to the end of the minute hand nut threads. This last measurement is not so easy to get, the dial comes off for this to be done and there is some gears in the way. But again, this measurement is from the front plate of the movement and all the way out. A movement plate is the two plates with all the gears in between and there is a front plate with its hand shaft sticking out, and a back plate.

Urgos UW6/ series clock movement

Urgos UW6/ series clock movement was mass produced in the 1970's and was a popular shelf clock movement. It was spring driven and ran for eight days on a single wind up. It chimed either Westminster only or three songs triple chime. These nice mantle and shelf clock movements are no longer made, but its still the best choice to go with a new movement via conversion if we can do it for you.

This movement is no longer available brand new as it has not been produced for a long time. It is best to get the closest equivalent movement to this old Urgos unit. We have a Hermle unit that is of equal quality to replace this however. A Hermle unit is very close to what you have now, only the locations of the winders on the movement are in slightly different locations. So what this means is the holes in the clock dial face, where you wind the clock, will not line up with this new movement. You will need to cover the old winding holes somehow and drill new ones, or even better get a new dial with your new movement. The dials are a tricky thing, as sometimes we will have them pre-punched for the movement you are ordering, and sometimes we do not have them pre-punched.

If we have to send one with no punching, you will have to drill the holes to wind the clock on your end. To determine if we have a dial for you in punched or un-punched we would need a picture of the dial you now have so we can attempt to duplicate it with something from our stock, preferably with the punching predrilled so you can wind the clock. So please email us a picture of your old dial to [email protected] with the dimensional sizes of the clock dial you now have.

Urgos Clock Movement Conversion Chart

The Urgos clock movement conversion chart is used when your old clock movement is not on the list of movements we offer. If the chart does not produce the result, or if the movement is no longer made, please do not be discouraged. We may still have the movement and if not, we can do a conversion to a different maker in a lot of situations.

No Luck? Try This Way

Urgos Clock Movement UW Alternate Identification Method

Urgos Clock Movement UW units are available in the floor clock models, meaning grandmother and grandfather clocks. This is the more involved way of getting to the correct new unit, and takes some figuring out. The other way is just by the movement numbers and is in another section. This section is only for if the first way produces no results you can match up the movement by its attributes instead of the number system that can be confusing and also sometimes incomplete. There are times that the Urgos Clock Movement UW number is not on the lists, but is still available with a different name. A example being UW66016 is really a UW66018 but with a different name. Or UW32/1 is really a 32319 or even a 32001. Do you see how it can be tricky? Well this way just gets cuts out the movement numbers all together and gets down to what you need with no numbers involved at all. Again need to mention that this way is only used after the first way failed in some way.

Urgos Clock Movement UW Identification Directions

The movements are separated in series. Each question on the drop down menus are explained in the text below. What we are doing here is matching up the movements qualities or attributes to get the new number. Not all the conversions are listed the other way so this is used to narrow it down to the correct new unit.

If your numbers are not jiving with either of these lists, you can use the below method of figuring out what the new Urgos Clock Movement UW is. The below movements are separated in series, a series you can say is the outer plate size of the floor clock. Each question on the drop down menus are explained in the text below. What we are doing here is matching up the movements qualities or attributes to get the new number. Not all the conversions are listed so this is a way to narrow it down to the correct new unit.

Urgos UW66 Series

Urgos clock movement UW66 Series

A rectangle clock movement made by Urgos clock company. The UW66 series is a cable driven, triple chime unit and they all have a 49mm hands shaft from the front plate and out. They are all consistent in this way however the pendulum length does still vary in options. - Item UW66

Clear
UW66: $699.00

1. Chime type

There are two chime types, Westminster chime only, or triple chime. The Westminster with just have chime or silent at the 3 O'clock switch, and the triple chime will have your choice of three songs and also silent at the 3 O'clock switch. If you have no switch at 3 O'clock, its Westminster only.

2. Weights hang on

There is only two options for this. Either the weights will be hanging on chains coming down from the movement, or the weights will be hanging on pulleys that are hanging from cables. The chain driven units get wound up by pulling down the chains, the cable

driven gets wound up by a crank key that gets inserted into the dial holes.

3. Hand Shaft Length

This is the measurement of the shaft that the hands go on, from the front plate of the movement and all the way out to the end of the minute hand nut threads. This is in mm but you can convert to inches online if you need too. Just type into a google search mm to in. The options are displayed on each movement series so all you have to do is figure out what mm length yours has that matches.

4. Pendulum length from top

The Germans measure the pendulum length from the top of the movement and all the way down to the bottom of the pendulum nut threads. This measurement is approximate and varies depending on bob diameter. (The bob is the round disk at the bottom of the pendulum). The larger diameter on the pendulum bob, the longer the pendulum is needed to be for the same unit. The Germans base there PL length (sometimes stamped on the movement, but usually not) on a bob diameter of 4 1/2 inches. (4 1/2 inches = 145mm). So when the list says for example 93cm, they are talking about the pendulum from tip to tip, the pendulum leader that is hangs on, and the suspension spring that the leader hangs on. All three components put together in one measurement in CM's.

If this is confusing, we can do this another way. If you take off your pendulum, and put it on the kitchen table, and measure the pendulum from tip to tip when it is off the clock, we can say this instead=

  • If the pendulum Length 27-30 inches, get the 80cm movement
  • If the pendulum Length 31-34 inches, get the 93cm movement
  • If the pendulum Length 35-37 inches, get the 100cm movement
  • If the pendulum Length 38-40 inches, get the 110cm movement
  • If the pendulum Length 40 plus inches, get the 116cm movement

Plug and play? Almost, but there are some things to do, and instructions will be emailed to you. If you get stuck just call or email. It is not hard to remove the old unit and put this new one in. After you get the hands and the dial out of the way really there are only two screws underneath that hold the movement in there. All the other stuff hangs off of it. The instructions explain all this anyway, and if you get stuck call or email. So there you have it, a new movement ready to go in a week, for about 1/4 to 1/2 the price of an overhaul. German made, no knockoffs, ready for another 30-40 years of service
