    Hi all,

    I stumbled on this site while doing some research. I have new old stock of roughly 300+ pcs of Tochigi-Tokei quartz movement with detachable/lockable pendulum arm that I would like to get rid off but do not know how to. Anyone interested? I bought them years ago via a local agent who’s no longer in the business. They are made in Japan and still well kept. It is silent with no chime and uses 1 “AA” size battery that needs replacing after 8-9 months.
    Thanks if any can help.

  11. I have a Tochigi Toke (This is the way they pronounce it on the clock)with pendulum and two batteries, few days ago it stop operating I took it down and cleaned of the dust and replaced the batteries with new ones, it worked for a short time and this time it stops, but pendulum works I think because it has a separate power source ( one of the batteries) there is a #28507 and TSKS printed in one of the compartment and the other battery compartment has 950/TSSO or 950/TSSQ printed please advise what I should do replace the whole thing or repair it.

  15. RICHARD CLARK says:

    I have a reproduction Regulator wall clodk which has a pendulum and chimes. I need to acquire instructions of the movement as I removed the cover and some of the gears are loose. It is a TOCHIGI TOKEI which has 20404A stamped in the battery mount area (D cell) as well as 70710. It has operated flawlessly for years but all of a sudden it just stopped. Is it repairable or does it need replacing and if so where are replacement movements? Thank you.

You are an angle if you can help me.

  20. Bill Stoddard says:

    Most quartz clocks don’t have a speed adjustment, they are supposed to be accurate without adjustment.

  27. Chuck says:

    Exactly what I needed to reset the old clock in a retirement home. Great resource! Thanks!

  28. I have this exact movement. The battery finally went dead and I replaced it with a new one, however the hands do not move. The clock chimes at the appropriate times and hour chimes advance normally. There is no beep when setting the clock and the test button has no effect. The new battery has a terminal voltage of 1.61 volts when in the clock so it is fully charged. I can’t quite understand why the chimes work but the buttons make no sound.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause this?

    Thanks so much

  42. Bill says:

    You can buy new quartz movements from the following place:

    The movement won’t have the same name. You can buy them with different shaft lengths to fit various types of cases. You get a free pair of hands with the movement, you can choose the proper length to match the dial.
