With the mainspring out of the movement, you will need a micrometer and a tape measure. First thing measured is the width, and match it up with the proper section of the chart. After matching the width, see what is the closest spring in that section in thickness and length.

The length is not easy to measure, approximate is still good. Even if the replacement spring is not the exact same length, the clock will have no difference in timekeeping, it would only be the duration of run time altered.

When a loop end mainspring breaks the impact may have caused damage in the rest of the gear train. It is possible that the pivots that go into the outer plates have bent or the arbors bent some, its best check on this before finding a mainspring. The length, width, and thickness would need to be measured and then you would match it up on the chart below. We offer a repair service with the best equipment for those that do not want to be bothered with the repair.

A loop end mainspring is the kind of spring that you can see, it is not in a container, in other words. This spring would have a loop on the outer end of the spiral that attaches to the movement arbor. The old mainspring comes out and then measure the width, thickness, and approximate length. The movement needs to be dis-assembled for the old mainspring to come out. If you choose not to do this, you can also send the movement in for repair and mainsprings replaced.
