Waterbury Mantel Clock Open Escapement Movement
If your serious about replacing your worn movement with a high quality rebuilt movement consider one of ours. Every pivot, lever and tooth is inspected for defects and repaired or replaced if needed providing you with a movement as close to factory new as you can find anywhere.
Our movements are simply the best rebuilt movements you will find anywhere period! We take NO shortcuts on the overhaul process and have a extensive used parts inventory should a defective part have to be replaced.
The Waterbury open escapement movement pictured was just rebuilt by us and shows where new Bergeon bronze bushings where installed, see picture with the red circles.
Prior to installing new Begeon bronze bushing all pivots where polished using a Rollimat pivot polisher, a tool specifically designed for polishing pivots of all the defects. When finished every pivot is perfectly round again and has a mirror like finish, a thing of beauty.
We then assemble and test the movement for at least one week prior to oiling the pivots with the best synthetic clock oil. We have always tested our movements without oil for at least a week so not to hide and potential binding problems.
Your newly overhauled movement will provide many years of dependable service, all you have to do is wind it up and enjoy.
See picture with red circles indicating new bronze bushings on the back and front plate.
See picture with the blue arrows indicating new time and strike mainsprings. When we install new mainsprings we use only the best German mainsprings available. We do not use the $5.00 cheap springs that "SET" in a very short period of time.
NOTE: This movement does not have the center porcelain dial so your old one must be moved to this dial. If your not familiar with a open escapement movement and how to let down the mainspring and remove the various parts on front of the movement to put on the center porcelain disk do NOT purchase this movement.
This normally is not a job for a amateur.
Strikes the hours on the hour and once for the half hour.
See pictures for distances for the winding arbors and center shaft (where the hands attach) to the center shaft.
Comes as pictured.
