Modern Chime Clock Repair

A chime clock indicates the quarter-hours by playing a short melody, usually on chime rods, in addition to striking the hours.

Many chime clocks from the 1960s and later have movements made by Hermle in the Black Forest of Germany. These movements can usually be replaced more cheaply then repaired. You may e-mail a photo of the back of the movement to me, and I'll tell you if it can be replaced.
