Clocks, Watches/question dated 12/24/2011


John, I have the same problem as Jim Brennan (12/24/2011) I have a Jauch movement # 110cm.Can you steer me to a replacement spring or a modification of some kind?
Thank you for your consideration

Carmine, I don't really know how your question fell throught the cracks, but I just was reminded by Allexperts that I had not send an answer.

I would imagine that by the replacement spring you are referring to the suspension spring at the top of the pendulum assembly.  And what type of modification are you looking for? Let me know and I'll check on what you need next Tuesday as I will be out of the shop on Monday.  

And I am sorry about not getting back with you sooner.

Carmine, I have misplaced the reference material on the suspension spring/hanger for the Jauch Pendell 110cm movement.  However I think I know the correct suspension spring.  The number listed in the Timesavers catalog is #11080, but before you ordere, wait until I make sure.  I have sent an inquiry to my Internet Clocksmiths members to see if any can verify my choice.  You can Google Timesavers for contact information either for catalog and On-line ordering or an 800 number.

As I am not a certified appraiser I do not give values of clocks over the Internet. There is very little published information on what I consider to be the value of "modern production clocks". However, considerations are what the clock originally sold for, the condition of the case and movement, and particularly the area in which you live, the demand and the economy. ALSO, WATCHES ARE NOT MY FIELD. However, I can advise the clock owner on proper maintenance of a clock to keep it running, small corrections and adjustments and how to move a clock without damaging it. I can also advise on obtaining parts for clocks. As clock case model label numbers are difficult to relate to the movements, it is helpful if you can give me the information usually found on the movements themselves. Modern clock movements usually have the information on the back plate of the movement. I have been a clockmaker for about 40 years and was plant engineer in the mid 90's and later operations and engineering consultant at Emperor Clock Company in Fairhope, Alabama. I now have my own clock shop in Prattville, Alabama.


One of my greatest accomplishments was traveling to China to assist a clock factory in building clocks to the standards which we required at Emperor. With the proper specifications and quality control, some beautiful clock cases were built. The factory people from the wood carvers to the plant manager were very congenial, friendly and I left a lot of wonderful friends when I returned from my trips.
