In this video I show how I swapped out a broken clock mechanism (or movement) with a new battery powered one. This is a real simple operation – it only takes about 10 minutes and keeps your clocks running!

Any amount is greatly appreciated – no matter how small! Even a nickel would be nice 🙂


  1. Can I take the mechanism out of one clock and use it on another one?

  5. I have a an older clock and it has a battery powered motor in the back but it was glued on and I’m afraid to pull it off because I don’t wanna screw the clock up so that I can replace the mechanism I tried putting batteries in it but it doesn’t seem to work so that kind of confirm that I needed to replace it, but it’s glued on so I need to either find out how to do that or hire somebody to do it for me

  6. I have a nice pair of Art Deco silver hand that would look great on the clock

  7. I just picked one up at the hobby lobby and fixed my ⏰. Thank you for your help.

  8. Do I have to have the same model part to replace it?

  9. Without closeups, I can’t see what you’re doing. Sorry. I’ll keep looking.

  14. Elvis Presley battery with pendulum . I bought a replacment kit , I find now that there isa another bluewire that goes into the movement but there doesn't seem to be an entrance for it.This wire goes back2 D type batteries for Elvis singing on the hour. The fault with the clock is the hands are not moving.

  15. Should have been zoomed in more for closeup.

  16. Hobby Lobby has a nice assortment of these. I have replaced around 10. Easy to do but they suggest not making it too tight because it affects the mechanism. ❤
