    Default Marion Kay Coin Clock (1964 Last Silver Coins) - Replacement Movement

    A friend brought me his Marion Key Coin Clock because the original movement decided to retire. I am searching for a replacement fit-up movement, but I would like to re-use the original hands in order to preserve the authentic look of the clock. Can anyone advise of a fitting movement?

    Thank you for your help and input!

    Looks like any quartz movement will work. You will need to match the movement to the dial thickness. The hands look like common quartz types. Try Klockit. Bob.

    I can't see for sure, but I think your movement might be a self wind. If that's the case, you won't find a replacement easily ... but as Bob said, a quartz should fit just fine. You may have to modify the hands to fit, but that's fairly easy to do.

    A "C" cell quartz will do it. It will probably be slightly smaller than the old one but will look very much like the old one. A "AA" movement will look to small and out of place.
