    I have an Urgos UW325750 movement. I don't see this number in the replacement lists. However, I do see a UW32575 movement listed. Is in the same (zero being dropped)?

    It has this type of pendulum leader (shown below). What spring connects this leader to the post?

    Many misread the D at the end as a 0. The replacement is UW32342. We have it in stock. Kindly contact us a butterworth@butterworthclocks.com. Regarding the suspension spring for your original, it is a C plastic type.

    It is a suspension spring for Urgos movements. What does that have to do with auto beat?

    What spring connects this leader to the post. I believe it's this one . What do you think. There are 2 different size springs.

    You have to know which size it needs. If you don't, buy one of each. Still don't know what this has to do with auto beat, though:whistle:

    This movement uses the smaller one. To argue Harold's point, about 20 (?) years ago Urgos went to a high bridge design on the UW32. It uses a 'normal' suspension spring and a different leader. They also changed the tiny tooth escape wheel too but that could have been at a somewhat different time.
    All UW32s that were made, past the era of the funny looking moulded suspension spring, were autobeat. That often posed a problem because many were in narrow Grandmother style cases. Willie X

    Thanks Willie for stating that I would need the smaller one (the shorter in length one)! Not sure how/where else I could find such information!

    One seller has the spring listed as "self adjusting".

    Hard to see, but I imagine that the black plastic at the bottom has a hanger for the leader to hang on. Yes?

    Yes, the leader locks onto the spring to minimise or eliminate any lateral wiggle. This makes for a better action on the autobeat feature.

    Yes but the other model takes a different leader doesn't it :???: But the leader in question, takes the suspension spring I posted.
