Restoring a Franz Hermle Westminster chime movement

I'm restoring an Hermle clock movement that has Westminster chimes. This is the most complicated clock movement i've attempted yet. It has 3 gear trains, 3 barrel springs, 5 hammers, and it's own xylophone!

Was able to get everything back together and the clock ticks and chimes. Still working on the chiming part of it however.

From the photos you can see how complicated this one is to put back together, especially for an amateur clock repair enthusiast.
