Clock Hands Shopping Tips:

1) Clock hands up to 4.5" long include an hour, minute and red second hand.   These hands work with standard quartz clock motors, or those with pendulum/chime options.
  • We stock a large selection of clock hands in various sizes and designs.
  • Clock hands are available in brass and black finish.  Great for replacement clock motors or when making new clocks.
  • The diameter of the hole in the hour hand (and slotted hole in the minute hand) is 5 mm to fit a standard American I-Shaft design. 
  • If you are purchasing standard movements, our clock hands are free - click here to make your selection(s)
2) Clock hands 5-3/8" and up are sold as an hour/minute hand combo and require High Torque (High Power) Clock Movements.
  • Our Balanced Sweep Second Hands (Offered below for $8) require Continuous Sweep (Silent), High Torque Clock Motors.

3)The size listed below represents the length of the minute hand - measuring from the center of the hole where the hand mounts to the shaft, to the tip of the clock hand.

How to select the right size clock movements and hands

How to size Clock Hands? A general rule of thumb in choosing the right size clock hands is to  choose a set of hands where the minute hand is roughly 1/2 the diameter of the ring created by the numbers on the clock face. For example if the diameter of an imaginary circle to the bottom of the numbers on your clock face is 4-1/4 inches long than choose a set of clock hands with a minute hand about 2-1/8 inch long.

Still need to find your clock movement? Choose quartz movements, pendulum movements, or pendulum chime movements here.
