    Hey guys,
    Found this Haller quartz clock at my favorite thrift store. The clock keeps perfect time, but the pendulum does not turn. I was told by one dealer that they don't make the movements for these anymore so replacement is not possible. Anyone know if this is true? It is a S.Haller W993.
    If there are no replacements for this, does anyone know how to repair the pendulum movement on this one?

    Also, Even though I am not in the 'parts wanted' thread, anyone know where I can get the metal back door?

    Thanks for any help.

    Sorry for the sideways pics. Can't get them straight.

    Yes, the movements are no longer made.
    I believe the back was a piece of plastic with
    gold paint.
    Looking at your picture, the pendulum is locked
    down with the lock, right under the movement.
    That is used during moving so as to not break
    the suspension spring.

    And Dave, that is not the same thing.

    Tinker your right. I had the lock on while moving it around for the pics. It does not run with the lock off. Your right that Dave's suggestion was for a separate pendulum drive, this one runs on the main clock mechanism.

    So I just have to live with the pendulum not working? Seems ashame for such a nice piece. Oh well, sometimes you loose I guess.

    Yep, I see that now. Should have studied it a little closer before posting.

    There are two type of drive fro the pendulum.
    One is an ATO transistor drive.
    The other is tang catch a toothed wheel as in the
    one Bang has pointed to.
    With the plastic cover still on, I can't tell for sure
    which type you have.
    I suspect it is the tang type.
    The tangs often break but a replacement can often
    be fabricated.
    Two pieces of flat tooth pick, clamped together and
    supper glued to the spring, can replace the plastic
    tang.
    Put some super glue on the tip where the ratchet wheel
    will hit it and let that dry first.
    Use a shorter piece to clamp it to the spring, so you don't
    accidentally glue to the ratchet wheel or get any into the
    movement.
    It only takes a tiny amount of glue so be careful.
    I recommend clamping with a piece of wax paper rather
    than directly with fingers. It would be real hard to remove glued
    fingers without breaking the suspension spring, unless you want
    to wait about a week for them to fall off.
