Urgos clock movement - Why New?

Urgos clock movement - Why New is because new movement will last much longer than a repair ever would. It would usually cost less and be up and running in a very short time whereas a repair can take months. The new movement would be faster, cost less, and would last a lot longer. This is because a repair on the unit is a very time consuming process and the movement would be disassembled and reassembled for this. The only time you should have the movement serviced is if it is out of production and not available new, or it is a very high end movement such as a tubular bell if it makes economic sense to do so.

The Movement

The movement will come lubricated with clock oil already, so there is no need to oil it. The clock comes with its cables and pulleys or chains, comes also with the leader and suspension spring. This is everything that comes out when you remove the two screws that are under the movement. Once you get the hands and the clock dial out of the way (instructions included) its only a matter of removing the two screws that go up into the movement to secure it. The new movement can be swapped out by me in 10 or 15 minutes, so figure a little longer for some one who is not used to it, but it just shows its not that hard. There are some instances where someone created there own clock case, and built it sort of weird and it makes it tricky, but this is not so common.

Urgos clock movement - Why New? I think we pretty much covered it. Its less than half the cost of an overhaul typically, instant instead of months later, the longest lasting of the choices. So with that said, its time to get the numbers off of the back plate of the movement itself so we can match it up to the brand new clock movement.

  • Half the cost of a overhaul
  • Lasts twice as long as a overhaul
  • Get it now instead of months later
  • Comes with cables or chains
  • Already oiled and test ran
  • Comes with instructions and support
