I have been searching the web for a mechanical movement for a mantle clock. I can’t seem to find any less than $180-$200 which out of my budget.

Any one know of a place I can find a 8 day (or 14 day) mechanical movement with pendulum for less than $100?

If I can’t find one I guess I will have to consider a quartz movement, but that is a last resort.

Dan, ebay is a possibility, I’m just not knowledgeable enough yet. But I’m looking and learning.

Thanks everyone, Emperor has some Hermle movementa for the cheapest I have seen so far and I have purchased from them in the past, they were easy to deal with and helpful so I may end up giving them a call if nothing else turns up.
