Clocks, Watches/Waltham wall clock movement replacement

Question
What mechanical movement can I buy to replace the one missing from my Waltham 31 Day Chime (gong) wall clock?  (Pendulum length seems to be around 16").
Thank you very much in advance for your time!

Answer
I know of no current mechanical movement that is designed to replace the 31 day movements. Doing so with avaiable movements involves considerable alteration such as drilling new holes in the dial since the winding arbor placement won't be the same and installing a mounting board to get the depth correct.
