After a few years I found my favorite clock wasn't keeping time any longer even after I'd replaced the batteries. The good news is that replacing most clock movements is a quick DIY project. Follow these step-by-step instructions to get your own clocks in working order again.
First you need to disassemble your current clock and make sure you have a movement that can be replaced. Measure the movement and buy a suitable replacement. And then simply install the new movement.
There are many different replacement movements you can buy so think about if you want an audible second tick, sweep or jump second hand, or no second hand at all. You can also get a movement which sets itself automatically using a U.S. radio signal.
I found it best to buy a movement from a website dedicated to selling clock parts since their form ensured that I got a movement that would fit. Movements are also available on Amazon and other sites but make sure you match up the measurements.
Many clock hands are interchangeable but that can't be guaranteed so make sure you pick out clock hands you'll be happy with when you get a new movement.
