Hello,

Based on the below pictures, would anyone be able to tell which movements this clock would take or would be able to point me to where I can learn how to select one that would work with it? It is marked as a New England Clock Company No. 265C. I'm a newbie and appreciate any help you all provide.

Thanks,

Dan

It will probably have an Urgos movement. It's not easy to overhaul and no longer available as a replacement.

The one I have has been retro fitted with a large quartz electro mechanical strike movement. That's one good way to go,
Merritt's #P-647WP.

Mine is marked 265 also, no C though. I always though it was the 265th clock in the series of production ... guess not.

If you do go with a quartz movement, it won't work with the old pendulum. However, it will come with a new light weight brass pendulum but be sure to specify the pendulum diameter. This clock needs a pendulum about 2 3/4" in diameter.

The quartz hands needed are serpentine style and 4 5/8" long. Merritt's #P-786 will fill the bill. These "I" hands will fit nearly all quartz movements.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
