Welcome to the board.

You have now posted this question 8 times in different threads! Please don't post the same question in multiple threads, it becomes very confusing.

I hope the administrators will combine your posts soon.

Genda,

Welcome to the forum.

I will attempt to assist you, but it will take some time. Be patient.

And, please do NOT respond to the other two threads in which you have requested the same information. This will only cause confusion.

Again, please be patient.

Regards.

Genda,

I researched for the model number of your HAC / HAU movement, but I could not find your movement. It is a unique movement, especially the design of the backplate. Your backplate has a 'half-moon' cutout above the strike barrel.

what details are missing
The movement is time and strike (your clock does not chime) and your movement appears to be missing the hammer that is needed to strike a gong. The gong and gong bracket are also missing.

The clock appears to be missing the hour hand.

You may also be missing the suspension spring.

I see a pendulum bob but no pendulum.

maybe someone has a photo of the watch from the catalog
Based on the size of the pendulum bob, my guess is your mechanism was meant to fit in a wall clock, but I suppose the movement could also fit into a mantel clock.

what year is he
I estimate the movement was made circa 1900.

Perhaps others will add their observations.

I am sorry that I cannot be of more help to you.

Regards.

thank you
Yes it is a unique movement,
nobody’s don’t knows what is this.
Someone told me that it has a music drum or hurdy-gurdy
