My mother's needed the wire that holds
the weights. I took it to a jeweler. That
may be the best for correct repair. It
meaning so much to you.
Since this is a special clock, take it to an antique clock repair person. We had one growing up too. We kids called it a this way-that way clock!
Thank's for the response ,I took it to the jewelers,they couldn't fix it ,I need to replace all the works,thought if I could fine one just like it, I could replace the part
I have a quartz 85 clock, made in Germany, model #WO85/00675. I would like to find someone to repair it, it does not run.

I had a problem with my german made cuckoo clock and made a repair inquiry and got a reply and perhaps this person will know what to do. He is a retired repairman for german cuckoo clocks and gives free advice.
I have a clock with a 2.5 inch diameter dial. The clock uses an 85 German W085/0065 movement. I am looking for two (minute and hour) black replacement hands - both are push-on.
The spindle diameters on the movement are too small for other replacement hands I have tried.
I cannot replace the movement as it is used to rotate four Bavarian figurines under the clock. The movement works OK, I just need the hands.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I live in Texas.
That movement is probably the most common among German clocks but finding replacement hands may be more trouble.
If you do not wish to go that route then you may be able to inquire at some of the German clock forums but you will probably have to join each one to be able to ask your question. Most likely anyone of them can help you.

In a lot of cases like this you more than likely are going to have to go to a repair shop for clocks to get this one done. I am not sure they even make this part or it is a special order part for your clock.

This should not be too much of a problem. I have replaced movements in other clocks in the past. I went to a clock repair shop in my area and brought the clock with me.
Our anniversary clock quit working even though I replaced the battery twice. On the face it says Concordia & Germany at the bottom. On the back it has Quartz 85 and the numbers W085/00675. Where can I purchase the replacement and how do I replace it? I would appreciate any help you can send my way. Thank you!
I would take it to a jeweler who fixes clocks
Buy in Sweden Clas Ohlson urverk which fits the format to your clock

Also There are forums devoted to clocks...perhaps one of the experts on at this link can assist:
There are also some general YouTube videos that may help:
You need to find out who made the clock, and then contact the manufacturer
I would like to price and locate a quartz clock movement, 85 wo85/00675, made in Germany, for my Concordia anniversary clock. Any ideas?
