Clock Movements price includes free hands and mounting hardware plus a 3 year warranty on the clock mechanisms.
North American Made by TAKANE, the mini quartz clock movement is the standard in the industry. Great for the hobbyist or serious clock maker, our clock motors are reliable. They run on one 'AA' battery and are accurate to within two minutes a year. We stock six shaft lengths to accommodate clock dial thicknesses from 1/8" to 3/4' thick.
1) If you are using a glass or plastic cover over the movement, make sure you have at least 1/8" extra clearance as you will need room for the second hand. Our mini quartz clock mechanism fits a 3" hole if recessed.
2) Choose your movement based on the thickness of the clock dial/face that the hand shaft must go through. For example, if your piece of material is 1/4" thick, then choose Q-12 which is designed for a 1/4" thick clock face, leaving room for the mounting hardware.

3) Consider an upgrade to continuous sweep clock mechanisms, which run silently, or to a high torque movement which will drive long clock hands up to 18" long.
Clock making can be great for art classes, school programs, and even birthday parties. Our customers make clocks with dials out of wood, compact discs, metals of all types, and much more.
