Comprehensive clock spares and parts ordering service. Both new and used items are available. We also stock and refurbish old quartz clock and moving coil movements. We also have a reasonable amount of French clock spares.
Spares range from Long case to cuckoo clocks. We will try to find that hard to find spare by researching and searching both suppliers and online resources such a Pre loved, Gumtree and eBay.
We have many contacts on the various continents that are both known horological suppliers and repair specialists. We can advise on repairs and also get certain specialised tasks completed for you. Just send us your requirements with as much detail as possible.
400-day or Anniversary clocks as they are sometimes known are quite difficult to order spares for as they have limited identification features and many are without calibre numbers. Timetips clocks offers an identification service to aid with the purchase of the correct suspension spring or complete suspension unit or mainspring.
UTS radio controlled quartz clock movements. These movements receive the 77.0 kHz radio signal from Mainflingen in Germany. Mainly two different types, standard and high torque, both available in two hand-shaft lengths. DCF77 is a German long-wave time signal and standard-frequency radio station. It started service as a standard-frequency station on 1 January 1959. In June 1973 date and time information was added.
Synchronous clock motors that require a mains electrical connection. They are basically a motor that is governed by the main frequency of 50 Hertz (cycles per second). They are very compact but powerful units and extremely accurate. Timetips offer five variants, four standard and one High-Torque. These units are guaranteed for 3 years but normal working life can be up to 20+ years. They do require an element of protection if they are to be used in an outdoor environment. Please request any further advice you may need to make the correct buying decision. The correct mains supply is essential for successful operation.
This is a service offered by Timetips due to the constant requests we get for battery operated clock movements that are no longer in production. This is mainly due to customer’s wanting to have cherished clocks working again as they have sentimental value that you cannot place a monetary price tag on. We often have repairer’s requesting movements or spares as well.
So, on this page we will be listing all types of reclaimed or NOS (New Old Stock) battery powered clock movements. They may be quartz or moving coil type operation. All will be in working order and some will be guaranteed and come with as much fixing furniture as we can provide. All will be POA (Price on Application) as it depends on where the movement has to be sent and its rarity.
We are always interested in acquiring new stock, preferably working but also just for spares, with associated hands and fixing nuts, hangers, operating instructions etc. If you have any old battery movements gathering dust please get in touch with as much detail as possible and a few pictures, price required, etc.
Hand-setter colour denotes movement type. Some are available in different hand-shaft lengths.
