1161 Winders Straight Across Issue

When ordering a new 1161-853 or 1161-850 please check the winder holes in the clock dial. Read More »

If they are straight across from each other than we do not have this exact one. This version of the 1161 series was made for a very short time. It is no longer in production. However because of the age that the clock is, it is still better to replace than to spend money on a rebuild that will not last.

The new movement will have a center winder that is about 3/4 of an inch below the original, it is possible to drill another hole in the dial and use a brass button (available at any fabric store) to cover the old hole. You also have the option of ordering a new dial from us along with the movement.

  • Less cost than a cleaning in most cases
  • Should last 25-30 years, a repair would not
  • Easy to install, we can help if needed
  • Ships same day as order
