    I have an Eimepar wall clock I purchased at an estate sale because I liked the look of it. I'm missing the pendulum and the weights. How can I find out the size I need? So far my on line searches have come up with nothing.

    Welcome to the board.

    I'm not sure where you've been looking, but I've just done a quick search of the web for Eimepar clocks which brought up many examples.

    However, unless you can provide photos of your clock, no one can possibly help you with what sort of pendulum or weights you need.

    Please post clear photos of what you have

    Weights would be about 3# each. Pendulum would probably be somewhere around 16" long. Looks like an Urgos movement, new parts are not available, but Hermle pendulum parts could be adapted and any type of weight will do. It probably had long but small diameter (1 1/4"?) brass weight shells with lead or cast iron fillers.

    WillieX is right, this clock has a German movement and would have been similar arrangment to wag-on-wall type as he suggests.

    Eimepar (V. Parbst & Son) did not make clocks themselves, they assembled them using imported German movements. The company is still in in existence, but stopped dealing in clocks in 1972.

    Thanks.

    Now that I know what I'm looking for I'm sure I can get the parts.

    Now I get to learn about clock repair.
