What is the difference between high torque and standard clock movements? High Torque Clock Motors are more powerful - made specifically to handle the extra weight of longer clock hands up to 17.75" in length. This means you can make a clock with a clock face/dial that is 36" wide or even greater! Comparatively, standard movements run clock hands up to 5 inches long.
What are the different types of high torque movements?
a) Bear Woods' bestsellers are Step Style High Torque Movements (Q-64 and Q-65 below.) These movements will make a stepping sound, but do not drive a second hand. (See below for pro tips about making your selection)
b) Also popular are Continuous Sweep Clock Movements with High Torque - they will drive the longer hands and operate silently. They can also drive our balanced sweep second hands (see below in red or black, 10 inches long). There are Sweep movements for AA and C Cell batteries. The C Cell will simply last longer.
c) High Torque Pendulum Movements in AA Cell or C Cell options. With this option you can drive the longer hands as well as a pendulum up to 25" long.
Our Price includes the mounting hardware for your clock. If you need a hanging bracket (as on the standard quartz movements), please let us know so we can send you one.
