Picture of Urgos Grandfather Clock Movement Parts

November 25, 2009 | By | 23 Replies More

I thought it would be fun to show all the parts of this movement. In the first photo it has been disassembled and is ready for cleaning. You can tell it needs cleaning by the black deposits on the pivots (the ends of the gear shafts that turn in the holes in the brass movement plates). Many of the parts are strung on wires for convenience in cleaning. Parts such as the hands, chains and hammer heads are not put in the cleaning fluid.

This movement plays Westminster chimes on each quarter hour, and strikes the number of each hour after the hour chime. The time gear train is in the center, chiming on the right, and hour striking on the left. A clock that chimes has about twice as many parts as one with just hour and half-hour striking.

Many of the pivots needed polishing to remove wear, and I installed 19 bushings to correct for wear in the pivot holes.

The movement is labeled at the bottom:

Gravely Furn. Co. Inc.
Martinsville, VA USA
Made in Germany
No ()) Jewels
Unadjusted
PL 85 CM

This movement goes to a Ridgeway grandfather clock.

Repair job 4968.

    I just bought an Ethan Allen model-AE3802 clock and was wondering what this clock is actually worth? Hopefully you can help me, thank you.

    Good afternoon,

    We just rescued an old Grandfather clock from the Salvation Army store that is in need of some love. What I know about Grandfather clocks is what I’ve been able to summize from the internet over the last few days. It is an Urgos 9-tube movement. Our clock is missing weights. I’ve been able to find what weights I need but I’ve only been able to find 2 of the 3. I know I need 7.7,7.7 and a 17.7. I’m not seeing the 17.7 weight anywhere. Do you happen to know if it something that I’m going to be able to find?
    Thank you kindly.

    Looking for some advice and direction,
    Mike

    This movement belongs to a customer, so I can’t sell it. Sorry!

  6. will you sell this Urgos mechanism to me, I think this will fr the Urgos Wall clock I have.
    The one I had was sent to the repairer who absconded with the mechanism after he went bust and left the remaining parts in his rented shop which I managed to salvage.
    I have the dial, the hands, the pendulum and the case with the gongs.
    I now wneed a mechanism and all the other mechanisms I have tried are a bit too small of this dial, the arbors do not fit the train holes and the center of the dial of my Urgos dial.

    Restoring this clock is so important to me it belonged to my grandfather and I am now 65, so you can imagine the passion to get this one right.

    I own a bout 50 clocks mostly Westminster and other chiming clocks.

    Regards
    Francis

    Thanks for posting these pictures. They were helpful in identifying the piece that was broken, the suspension spring. We just inherited the clock an Ethan Allen model AE 3802, with the Urgos UW32/1A movement. It is a little unclear what part to order for replacement but I am trying the #4 suspension spring from timesavers.com as it seems close to the right dimensions (18mm by 8mm with 13mm between hole and pin). Thanks again!

    I have an Urgos model 868145. Made in Germany No (0) Jewels. It has 6 weights if that makes sense. I would like to know where I can get more information about it to possibly sell it. I was hoping someone can lead me in the right direction please. Thank you for your time.

    I bought a Colonial 9 tube clock from someone that said the center weight doesn’t stay up. From the little I know, I knew that the clicking mechanism was out of place and thought maybe I could fix it. When I bought the clock sure enough he handed me the clicker and the e clip. I started to take it apart but chickened out half way through and put it back together. Can I get some directions so that I won’t mess this thing up? No other work needs to be done, bushings are all good, etc. Thanks, Mark

  13. Bill says:

    You’ll need to look at antique stores or perhaps eBay. Or, Merritt’s antiques (http://www.merritts.com/clock_parts/public/productlist.aspx?SubcategoryID=1970) might have one.

  19. Don Jones II says:

    I am replacing my Urgos UW03012 movement in my Ridgeway Grandfather Clock due to worn bushings. I would like to (slowly) replace the worn bushings in my old movement during the 2-year warrantee period that comes with my new Urgos movement. (The old one is still working fine, except it takes a heavier center weight to swing the pendulum.) Where do I get a bushing kit?
