Hi everyone,
Searching for any possible advice regarding this Hermel Anniversary quartz clock. I need to replace the whole mechanism. Does anyone know if this mechanism can still be obtained or maybe a replacement source. Any advice will be gratefully received thank you.

Mart,

That's an old one. AFAIK it was never available as a replacement. On some, you can can fit a standard mini quartz movement at the top and a fake 4 ball pendulum in the base. I don't like this repair for many reasons; maybe someone else will have a better alternative.

Hi Willie yes I have thought about usuing 2 diffrent mechanisms, but if it was possible to go with similar would be best. Hoping someone on here may have identical or similar one could purchase. Fingers crossed.

I'm sorry, I'm a little tardy to your posting... The circuit looks very simple; are you sure it can't be repaired? Anyone with basic electronics knowledge should have a good idea of how it works. (I'm a fan of originality versus discarding guts, especially near Earth Day. ;-)

Failing that, I found a Hermle quartz movement (2300) here:
