NEW NEVER USED SWISS THORENS “EDELWEISS” LARGE DISC MOVEMENT. New in original carton, this unused never installed large disc movement was among the remaining inventory of a custom clock and music box builder and sat unused in storage since the early 1980’s. This movement represents the last large disc (11) movement that was in production at that time. Known as the “EDELWEISS” and originating in the Victorian era, this is a first class example of large disc clockwork and features a “Geneva” movement for consistent regulation through the play. This was offered by Thorens and their distributors as the premium (Very Expensive) offering at the time in a few different cabinets as well as a bare movement which was made available to custom builders. Not to be confused with the smaller stamped steel 4.5 Thorens mini disk player which is commonly seen offered in the used market, this mechanism is a great example of the machining arts. Two new 11″ discs are included, “Bach Chorale” and “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. All original installation and mounting hardware is intact as well as instructions for mounting. Although their may be some slight oxidation from waiting for you all these years, I have tested the unit itself and it plays flawlessly. If you’re looking to replace an earlier unrepairable large heirloom movement, Thorens or otherwise, or just looking to build into your own custom cabinet, you probably won’t find a new or even a used instrument in this condition. I’ve tried to be as thorough as possible in compiling this listing. I would however be glad to address any questions you might have.
