Westminster Pendulum Quartz Clock Movements for clock faces up to 3/4" thick

Full-sized quartz movements with built in speaker plays a portion of the traditional Westminster Chimes melody of a grandfather clock every quarter hour, as well as counting out the hours on the hour along with the full Westminster Chimes melody. These are very popular movements, and they are very easy to use as replacement clockworks or in designing a new chiming clock.

Westminster Pendulum Clock Mechanism Shopping Tips:

1) Choose your movement based on the thickness of the clock face/dial you are using or making. Learn how to choose the right size clock hands and clock motors.

2) Mix and Match Sizes of Pendulum Clock Movements to get a better price.

3) If you forget to add hands or the pendulum rod/bob and you'd still like the hands or rod and bob a separate shipping fee will apply.  We always recommend new hands, as older hands may not fit the American I Shaft design.

    This chime installs and works beautifully. We like the features like the night silencer and volume control. The traditional Westminster chime is beautiful, as expected, but we presently have it on the Whittington, which is also nice. The instructions were quite complete and easy to follow, unlike many foreign made products which are almost useless. We hope to enjoy the clock for many years.

    How to Use

    Install a FRESH Duracell or Energizer Battery (But not a rechargeable type).  In our experience, these are the only batteries that are reliable for clock mechanisms.

    Westminister Chime

    These instructions are for the Q-25, Q-27 (non pendulum) and the Q-53, Q-55 and Q-57 (with pendulum) Westminster chime movements. All of these models plays the full Westminster chime melody on the hour with an hour count. they also play a partial melody increasing on every 1/4 hour.

    When setting these movements do not expect the 1/4 hour chimes to begin playing until the movement has been operating for at least one hour.

    Once the movement has been installed in your clock case using the center fixation nut, you are ready to set the chimes.

    Install a fresh "C" cell battery in the position indicated in the battery well.

    Turn the black hand setting knob in the direction indicated on the back of the movement. Turn this knob until a feint "click" is heard. This will indicate that the minute hand shaft is positioned at the 12:00 position. At this time the Westminister chime melody will start playing followed by an hour count. Count the number of hours counted after the chime melody has just been counted.

    Press the hour hand on the hour hand shaft in the position indicated by the number of hours just counted if you look closely you will notice that there is a small slot in the hour hand tube that is pointing towards the hour that has just been counted.

    Press the minute hand on at the 12:00 position. Secure by mounting the small minute hand fixation nut.

    If you are using a second hand now is the time to press it onto the second shaft in the 12:00 position.

    If you have the pendulum version of one of these chime movements, remove the pendulum hanger from the shipping position by pulling it towards the back of the movement. Now install the pendulum rod and bob.

    Let the movement run for an hour or two. Check to be sure that the chime melody is being played on the hour. If not, There is a white "final adjustment" slotted screw on the back of the movement that will enable you to make this adjustment. Each one of these indicators around this screw corresponds to one minute of error. Turn this screw as needed and wait until the next hour is played to see if you have made enough or to much of an adjustment.
