Every Jauch clock movement is discontinued as the company is out of business and nothing is being produced. What this means is you would be ordering a new movement made by Hermle instead. 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. 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 only time this unit should be repaired is if the unit has no available retrofit and it's the last resort. The Jauch company went out of business so long ago that the movement has to be over 30 years old at least. If there is no conversion kit, then a repair is the only way to go and there is no other option. If the movement is repaired rather than replaced, at least there will be no need for modifications to the dial or the pendulum top hook.Disadvantages of a repair:
You will have to have it done all over again in 5 to 10 years. No repair is as good as a new unit. Sometimes these units cannot be repaired because of lack of part availability. If something were to ever happen to the dial or hands then there is no replacement if staying with the Jauch movement rather than the Hermle conversion kit.
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 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.Disadvantages of replacing:
Some modifications may be required, such as listed on this page. Sometimes the pendulum will have to be shortened 1 1/2 inches off the wood stick. The dial would have to be attached to the wood case if it isn't already.
