1. Chime type?
We already know this, its triple chime on this one.
2. Weights hang on?
This Urgos movement is cable driven. If you have a chain driven movement, it is now obsolete and we can overhaul it instead.
3. Hand Shaft Length?
They are all 49mm from the front plate and all the way out to the end of the minute hand nut threads, there is only one option for this series.
4. Pendulum length from top?
The Germans measure the pendulum length from the top of the movement and all the way down to the bottom of the pendulum nut threads. This measurement is approximate and varies depending on bob diameter. (The bob is the round disk at the bottom of the pendulum). The larger diameter on the pendulum bob, the longer the pendulum is needed to be for the same unit. The Germans base there PL length (sometimes stamped on the movement, but usually not) on a bob diameter of 4 1/2 inches. (4 1/2 inches = 145mm). So when the list says for example 93cm, they are talking about the pendulum from tip to tip, the pendulum leader that is hangs on, and the suspension spring that the leader hangs on. All three components put together in one measurement in CM's.
If this is confusing, we can do this another way. If you take off your pendulum, and put it on the kitchen table, and measure the pendulum from tip to tip when it is off the clock, we can say this instead=
- If the pendulum Length 27-30 inches, get the 80cm movement
- If the pendulum Length 31-34 inches, get the 93cm movement
- If the pendulum Length 35-37 inches, get the 100cm movement
- If the pendulum Length 38-40 inches, get the 110cm movement
- If the pendulum Length 40 plus inches, get the 116cm movement
A rectangle clock movement made by Urgos clock company. The UW66 series is a cable driven, triple chime unit and they all have a 49mm hands shaft from the front plate and out. They are all consistent in this way however the pendulum length does still vary in options. Please select the pendulum length below.
We only need to know if its Westminster only or triple chime, what the weights hang on, how long the shaft is that holds the hands, and then the pendulum length. Please note the directions carefully as it explains how these measurements are to be done. When you have the information, just click the options in the drop down menu and wallah, you have a new movement coming to you. It will be the same unit and be able to fit your other clock parts such as weights and pendulum and so forth. The movements come already oiled and includes the chains or cables with pulleys.
Plug and play? Almost, but there are some things to do, and instructions will be emailed to you. If you get stuck just call or email.
It is easy to put this one in and swap out the old one. After you get the hands and the dial out of the way really there are only two screws underneath that hold the movement in there. All the other stuff hangs off of it. The instructions explain all this, and if you get stuck you can just call or email us. With over 100 years of combined clock experience we can help with whatever you have going on.
So there it is, a new movement ready to go in a week, for about 1/4 to 1/2 the price of an overhaul. German made, no knockoffs, ready for another 30-40 years of service. The movement comes with its chains or cables / pulleys, its already oiled, tested before shipping, comes with the leader and suspension and instructions.
