What is the difference between high torque and standard quartz clock movements and the hands that go with them?

High Torque Clock Motors are more powerful - made specifically to handle the extra weight of longer clock hands up to 18" in length so you can make a clock with a clock face/dial that is 42" wide or even greater!

Comparatively, standard quartz movements run clock hands up to 4.5 inches long.

2) Continuous Sweep Clock Movements operate virtually silently with a sweeping second-hand motion.  Available in High Torque for Large Hands, and Standard for Hands under 5".

3) Pendulum, Chiming, Pendulum + Chime Movements in AA Cell or C Cell options.  Available in High Torque for Large Hands, and Standard for Hands under 5".    

How do I choose the right size clock hands? 

1) Refer to the figure/video at the top of this page, or Click Here for helpful info (a new window or tab will open)  

2) The size of the hands is based on the length of the minute hand from the mounting hole to the end of the minute hand. (Figures 3 & 4 above) Most can be slightly trimmed if need be, and they are all USA made of aluminum.  Our customers also spray paint them.

3) 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 then choose a set of clock hands with a minute hand about 2-1/8 inch long.
