    Great First Purchase Experience 09/18/2018

    My first experience with Bear Woods was perfect. The products arrived as described and on time. The pricing was competitive and the website made the selection process easier. There was no downside to my purchase.

    Right Product/Right price. 01/27/2020
    By Raymond Wieszczyk
    Used to make a 30" square clock. Works great. Just don't hit it with anything. They will break easily. They are a lot thicker than the AA cell movements Thus, they will stick out or require a thicker clock body.

    Fantastic product 12/17/2017
    By Anne Wolfe
    Though it was on hackorder for this order, I have purchased it in the past. I love that those giant clocks don’t have to be removed nearly as often to change the battery.

    Excellent product 01/26/2020
    By Wayne Way
    Worked well with my wall clock

    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. Sometimes you will even try a separate pack as not all new packs have perfect batteries.

    Choose hands - the options here will fit your clock motor. We recommend our new, balanced hands.
