Mainsprings Japan Movment "Click" to Login or Register 
Picture of Pete Cronos

I have a Japan made clock from 1970 that I need a set of mainsprings for. It is suppose to run 31 days on a winding. The mainsprings measure .745 wide, .16 thickness and 133" long. They are Loop end. Theses are the original springs I purchased this clock myself in Okinawa in 1970. I have tried the major suppliers without finding a suitable replacement. Does anyone know where I can find replacements or suggest a suitable replacement?
THANKS

Pete,
I can't find any that match your dimensions. Are you sure on the thickness? That is much thicker than any of the listed springs.

I will check with a friend who has a clock shop. He may know which spring to use. I'll get back to you.

Thanks I do believe I stated the thickness wrong. It should be .016.
Thanks for your help

Pete,
I talked to my friend about your clock and the spring you need. He gave me one to pass on to you. It is the one he has successfully used in clocks like yours.

E-mail me with your address and I will get it to you.
