Every Jauch clock movement is discontinued as the company is out of business. What this means is you would be ordering a new movement made by Hermle instead. Read More »
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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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 below.
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. Read More »
The movement can be replaced again in another 25 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.
If the mechanical clock movement is 25 years old or more, the clock oil has solidified into this black sticky tar substance. This tar substance causes resistance (rather than lubrication) and wear on the clock movement. Read More »
This wear takes place in the holes that are in the brass plates and is hard to identify sometimes. These holes in the brass plates become oblong instead of round and this pinches the pivot arbor going into it. Between this, and the solid oil, the clock ceases to function. To have this repaired is an expensive and long process. To have a mechanical movement serviced can cost hundreds of dollars and in some cases it can take weeks to complete it.
A new mechanical clock movement can ship from USA the same day you order it, so the time it takes you to get your 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. Read More »
The new movement is the same as your old movement, so all the clock components usually fit on to the new movement with no trouble. The cost of a new movement is usually the same if not less than a cleaning on the old unit, and when it's installed it should last another 25-30 years without thinking about replacing or servicing it again. Some new units have bronzed bushings in key wear areas to increase the life of the movement, and on the non-pendulum units the balance has been improved upon for longer life and ease of timing. We here at Clockworks offer only the highest grade mechanical clock movements and they come with a 2 year warranty.
The Jauch to Hermle conversion requires some basic tools and can be tricky at times. It is not a plug and play unit, you have to do some things.Read More »
