QUESTION: I have a CamelBak Linden Mantel Clock with a Tochigi Tokei movement that plays the Westminster chime on 1/4 hour and full sounds on hour.  The clock movement has worn out and I would like to replace the movement but haven't found a proper replacement.  I would be grateful for any direction in finding the proper movement to install.

Thanks
Steve

ANSWER: Hi Steve,
I don't think that movement is made anymore but there are plenty of chiming movements on the market. Can you take the movement out and post a picture of it? I want to see the front of the movement outside of the case with the hands off.

QUESTION: Thank you for the reply.  I appreciate any help or direction you may have for me.  I am posting the movement from outside case.  I did look at the Norkro site but to me, none looked as if they would work.  I purchase this in 1995 if that helps at all from the old Kux Jewelry stores.

Thank you,

Steve

Answer
Thanks for the additional photos Steve. It appears that you could use any quartz movement that fits in the space behind the face. Our movement shown here might fit:

It does not have a volume control or a chime shut off. There are many chiming movements on the market if you want more features. It looks like you would want a pretty short hand shaft. I can see how long it is in the photo but it seems to only go through a thin amount of material.
Let me know if you want more help.
