  1. I am looking for a replacement movement fit my 20404 tochigi token, it hits to chimes, is there anywhere i can find one

  2. 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.

  7. 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.

  13. can you give me any information on a Tochigi Tokei… number 20404… we got this given to us for the food pantry and it doesn’t work. we would like to fix this and raffle it off at one of our dinners

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

  15. Is there a way to adjust this movement? My friend’s clock runs slow. Thanks. The info regarding chime adjustment was helpful.

  16. Looking to purchase the 13004 quartz no jewels unadjusted. My old battery ran and destroyed the inside no where I can get another?

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

  18. 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?


  19. I have a Tochigi Tokei No (0) Jewels #22804 TNHB stamped on the housing. Operates on one “C” battery. I need two new replacement clock mechanisms. Can you help me.

  21. Thank You very much for having the setting instructions manual posted for Japanese Quartz Chime Clock Movement Model MT-13005. I think this is the movement that is in a lovely clock that I purchased at an Estate Sale.I have been unsuccessful in efforts to set it correctly. Hopefully I can accomplish that, now.

  22. I have a Brass Nautical Clock with an Arm that strikes a Brass Bell. It has a Tochigi Tokei Quartz movement that uses a single D battery. Inside the battery compartment are the numbers: 22303A and 6081A. I would like to purchase a new movement. Where might one be found? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  29. 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.

  30. I am looking for a quartz movement with the same name stamped on the back as the Japanese Quartz Chime MT-13005.
