Clock repair and clock parts questions.
I have been professionally repairing clocks for 17 years. I owned and ran a clock shop for 6 years and I am the owner of the clock parts supply company; www.norkro.com
National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors
High school graduate, some college, graduate of Niles Bryant School of Piano Tuning and repair.
I perform about 20 clock repairs per week.
I love mechanical things, always have. I started tuning and rebuilding pianos when I was 19 years old. I'm the guy who always has to find out what makes things tick.

West Germany existed from 1949 until October 1990. The face looks very modern so I'm guessing it was made closer to the 1990 year. There may be some information on the back of the movement that could help
Repair prices vary greatly depending on the availability of clock repair people in your area. I charge about $150 for that repair, provided I don't need to drive far to pick up and deliver the movement
Hi Dave This is most likely not a user serviceable problem. The parts that keep the weight from sliding back down are inside the movement. Removing them fur repair and then putting them back in correctly
