Chime Melody Quartz Clock Movement

The popular Chime Melody Pendulum Clock Movement is a quartz clock movement that plays the Westminster melody on the hour and strikes out the hours. This chiming clock movement features a remote speaker with a 7-1/2 long wire that allows you to place the movement in one section of the clock while locating the speaker in another part. This quartz clock movement automatically silences the chimes after 9:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Accommodates a single hook pendulum stick, and your choice of brass bob, both sold separately.

Chime Melody Pendulum Quartz Clock Movement is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 times a charm I ordered this one and it arrived quickly and was packaged well. Alas, it didn't work well, the pendulum didn't move but the chime part worked fine. I called the company and they promptly shipped another and it works just fine! Side note, when this first arrived it wasn't the right size for my clock, the shaft was too short (my fault not understanding how to order the right size) However, I called and Debbie at Klockit was quick to offer solutions on how to modify my clock to make it fit. I tried her trick and it worked without having to order a more expensive movement. Awesome customer service...thanks Deb!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I guess you get what you pay for. I purchased this to replace the movement that had failed in my chiming pendulum clock. I installed it with no problems but installing the hands to be synchronized with the chime was a pain. I tried to follow the instructions but they were not clear to me. It would keep the correct time but it would chime before or after the hour. Finally I got it right and it chimed correctly. Sadly the chime stopped altogether four days later to never work again. It does still keep perfect time and the pendulum swings so I guess that is as good as it gets for $12.95 + shipping. Not worth the cost of shipping to return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I guess it's hard to complain when you know what your going to get with a digital chime. For some folks this is perfectly fine. If you've ever heard a mechanical clock chime on real brass rods or even a real gong, it pales in comparison. For my retrofit application I could not use the bim bam movement they sell that I have used before and sounds much better. I'm hoping they will keep trying to find better products for us to use. In a nutshell, if you like a nice sounding clear chime, don't buy this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chime Melody Pendulum Quartz Clock-NOT SO GOOD. I bought this movement several weeks ago and finally installed it in a new clock. I am thoroughly disappointed because the chime volume is so weak (and I do mean weak) that it can not be heard from 10 ft away and especially not with a little noise in the room. The batteries I put in are all new and measured 1.56 VDC each. The time piece part seems to work just fine so I'll have to be satisfied w/ that. Not worth returning it because the hands are difficult to coordinate w/ the chime (if you can hear it). The price is good but if it doesn't work!!!!! I gave it a 4 rating for Ease of Assembly. I've made or repaired many clocks (w/ Klockit parts) over a 20 year period and this is the first bad movement from Klockit. I recommend Klockit for clock products but do not recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I guess you get what you pay for. - UPDATE Soon after I posted my original review I was contacted by a Klockit representative. With just a couple of emails the issue was resolved and I received a refund . In my opinion Klockit is a top notch company that stands behind the products they sell. They truly are concerned about their customers being happy with their purchase. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice wall clock quit recently that used to belong to my mother that's no longer with us. Thought we wouldn't be able to use it anymore, then I found this site on line. They had exactly what I needed to bring the old clock back to life. Thanks so much.

I have a cooc coo clock I want to use this for can I use a 7" wood pedulem and what is shipping cost?

Asked by: Dama
Hi Dama, we cannot guarantee your original pendulum will operate with this movement based on the weight. We do recommend purchasing a pendulum from Klockit to ensure the pendulum operates correctly. Please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 regarding shipping and handling costs. Thank you!

Does the chimes hook on to the clock mechanism. trying to replace the mechanism of a clock from the 50's and the unit is one piece

Asked by: izzy56
Hi Izzy, the chime box does not hook onto this clock movement. When placing the chime box into a clock case, it is common for the unit to be secured using sticky foam. If you have any questions on this information, please call us at 1-800-556-2548.
