Question about Watches
I have a grandfather clock with a hermle 2071-850 / 94 movement, when i start the pendulum it swings but the clock doesnt tock, i leveled it but the only thing that i find that will move the second hand is pushing down on the middle weight, i know that they are all in the correct space because they have stickers on the bottom still, any suggestions?

You question is a bit non descriptive except that the clock does not work and the hand clutch has failed.
Hopefully this will guide you in the correct direction for a local repair person.
Hope this tip helps

Most grandfather/grandmother clocks have an adjustable screw on the weight to slightly extend it or shorten it to satisfy the equation of pendulum swing. the shorter the swing (arc distance) the faster the clock, the longer the swing the longer the time. Check to see if you can adjust the weight up or down on the hanger.

The clock must be levelled the same as when it was previously set up. In other words, if you didn't check the level of the clock before disassembly and reassembled it and re-levelled it, it may not operate because it might not be the same.
Some clocks have different weights for the clock, chime, and hour strike. Did you mark them and install them in the same location?
My Seth Thomas has a screw to adjust the swing of the pendulum to allow proper escapement on the gear, but you have to be able to determine which way the pendulum needs to swing more to make that adjustment. I may be able to help you with this!
You may need a clock repair service.
Let me know,
