I have an Ansonia sporing driven clock, what looks most like what you’ve labeled a “kitchen” clock. Hasn’t been maintained properly, and is failing just as described here on your pages. Surprise!

The most significant aspect of this clock, to me, is its sound. The ticktock, the windup of the striking mechanism 10 minutes before the hour strikes, and the chime itself. It appears a new movement is the best choice, but what are the chances the sound of the new movement will be significantly different from the sound of the old clock? Doesn’t seem likely they’ll be very similar.
