Question
HI Marilyn.

This may be silly, but important to me.

I have a Gager GU 168 quartz clock,
and a wheel had come loose in the housing.
When I opened the housing, the assembly fell apart
into its constituent parts of wheels, etc.
Nothing is broken.

Is there a diagram showing how to put it together,
from the bottom up, so to speak,
like they do it in the factory?

This is a cheap mechanism from China,
but I happen to like the Roman numeral facing,
so if you could help, I would appreciate it muchly.

Thanks.

Answer
Hi JP,

We don't usually repair quartz movements. We replace them.
Klockit.com has a lot of quartz movements to choose from.
Here is the page,

Here is their "helpful hints" page to help you determine which movement
is right for your clock.

Hope this helps,

This is for advice only. ~Most~ repairs need a professional. If I can help you with an adjustment that can set your clock back in order I will try. I can not write a chapter on clock repair. I will point you in the right direction and you will have to do your own research on how clocks work for more intense repairs. -No Watches -No Appraisals. Search ebay for past sales for that information.
