I belong to another clock forum and the reason for replacement is that they can make more money replacing them. Well I don’t see how. I can tear that unit down, clean and do most repairs needed and have it on the test stand in 3 hrs. If I charge $225 that works out to about $75 per hr. Now a lot of those that replace go 2 1/2 times the charge for the movement which say is $190 so that would make it $475. I am sorry I just can’t do that. Now if the movement which I have gotten a few now and again that someone has tried to fix and trashed it yes then I will replace.
