American clock movement replica
American clock movement replicas are not the same quality as the original but solves the problem. Thus, the clock will be working and striking as it should in a short time. Of course, these movements are made in India but are close in size to many of the American time strike units made between 1900 and 1950. Think of them as a 5 to 15 year disposable solution. These units are the best solution so as to not have to throw out a beautiful clock case.
Matching the clock movement
In the first place, the winding arbor measurements, pendulum drop, and hand shaft length all need to match the clock movement replica. The arbor configuration and the measurements are in the movement description to facilitate the ease of comparing the old unit to the potential new unit. Likewise, the pendulum length is available in variable drops on some units. A pendulum drop is the pendulum length from the hand shaft all the way down to the bottom of the pendulum bob. Please note the drop may fluctuate. In essence, the 13 inch drop unit may keep actual time anywhere between 12 1/2 and 14 inches. This can get a bit tricky so please email if there are any questions.
Clock movement only or the kit
The new movements are available to order in two different ways. The movement alone or complete kit with hands, key, gong with base and pendulum. Clockworks will custom drill a 6 inch dial with gold trim for the movement kit at no charge. This will be included in the American Clock Movement Replica kit with the exception of the mantle clock kits. Unfortunately, these dials are no longer in production.
