    I have a cuckoo clock that doesn't seem to want to run anymore. I wanted to pursue finding a replacement movement and I believe I can get someone to swap old and new for me. The Regula movement is stamped with "25/1-W". Basically it is a 1-day clock with music/dancing people platform. The little checking that I've done so far doesn't list this model number. Rather, they talk about pendulum length, platform height, handshaft length, and other things. Do I basically have to sit down and find out this stuff or is there a quality place out there where I can just get a "25/1-W"?

    Thanks...Kurt

    There are no direct replacements available. You have to work with the movements that are being produced today. Hopefully you will find something 'close' and a few minor mods will get you back in action.

    You can add: pendulum hanger post length, front to back chain wheel
    location, and rotation direction.

    Good luck, Willie X

    OK, thanks. I was hoping it would be simpler than that.

    BTW...what is a "handshaft" in this movement?

    I would think it is the length of the post for the minute hand.

    Black Forest imports is where I get mine. Scottie will work with you to get something that will work. Great folks to deal with.

    Called Black Forest Imports. I just need to measure the platform height from the hand shaft as well as the pendulum length and they should be able to help me out. So I'll see how that goes.

    Ended up ordering a movement from Black Forest. It was their model AM25/41S. I was hung up on the model number currently on the existing movement. I was reminded that was the model number for the supplier of the original movement...Helmut Kammerer is the name on the back plate.
