    Clock Works 09/18/2018
    By robin hensley
    I couldn't be happier with the clockworks we got. We had an old wall clock that just died. I was able to measure the threads, stem, and hands and get the perfect match. Who knew there were so many different measurements! The item came quickly and my husband changed out the broken part. The price was reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend Bear Woods.

    Very happy with service! 12/03/2019
    By Judy Hammond
    I needed a new clock "motor" so called & talked with their representative who helped me pick it out online. With the motor they include new clock hands as well. I'm a lady so I had difficulty getting the whole thing to work. I was sure I had the wrong parts!
    When I called them back, their representative was so patient in explaining what to do to install the motor as well as the hands. I really appreciated that!
    I would certainly do business with this company again. They couldn't be more knowledgeable or helpful!

    Easy replacement 06/24/2020
    By Robert Rooke
    Great products. Easy, exact replacement of a 25 year old movement. Website was very slow and clunky. I fiddled around for 15 minutes trying to figure out how to enter my shipping address before I figured out I was on a web page for Canadian customers only. ????? I eventually found the web page for US customers, but I had to enter everything again. Maybe provide some guidance on this up front? When the parts arrived, I had the clock running again in 1/10 the time it took me to place the order.

    I needed a bunch of quarts works to put together some bisque clocks.

    they had everything I needed..got everything in a timely manner and I actually had one that had a defect when I got it..
    .I called them they sent it right out and I got it within a couple days and I would order from them again hands down. I used to order from anothet distributor and these were are a better product and better price

    thanks for everything!

    will be ordering again

    Mini Quartz Clock Movement 01/03/2014
    By Sharon Beasley
    I have used these for many years making clocks. They are easy to install and must be long lasting since I have never had a return.
    I have had problems lately trying to screw on the brass nut that holds the movement in place. The threads on the nut may not be cut properly or perhaps not deeply enough. I used to be able to thread them on by hand but find more and more often I have to use pliers.

    definitely satisfied 02/27/2021
    By Becky Torrisi
    The first 3/8" clock mechanism I received arrived a couple of days early, but didn't work. When I emailed to get a replacement, they asked me to double-check a couple of things, which I did. When it still didn't work, they sent me another one which arrived in just a few days. I was very happy with the customer service and would recommend this company to anyone.

    Super product 01/07/2021
    By EdK
    Great products and super prices.

    I purchased the clock works which included hour/minute hands. I also bought the optional seconds hand which was only $0.75. Another seller wanted almost $9 (!) for the seconds hand.

    Support was also quick to reply to a question I had prior to purchase.

    Bear Woods is the place to buy your parts.

    I was very pleased with my purchase of the Mini Quartz Clock Movements and Clock Hands. I was very satisfied to find a Canadian Company that I could order these items from. The purchase price was also very reasonable which also influenced my purchase with your company. Thank you for such speedy delivery also.

    Fast Service, Good Product 04/08/2023
    By Mark Lange
    The clock movements were delivered quickly and well packed. Movements work well but do seem to have a bit of "slop" in the time setting mechanism. I got 3 movements with this order and they all behave similarly so this is a manufacturing feature of the clock movements. Worked great for my application.

    I Like It! 06/18/2018
    By Richard Morris
    A very nice little clock! They fit very nicely into the four Honduran Rosewood bodies and thru the hand carved leather faces. It is a perfect clock for the job! The brass hands gave the clocks a very classic appearance. I will order the same model clock for the next clock projects.

    By Bill Semple
    We purchased 100 sets of their clock movements to try in our product line. Still too early to review the reliability but the products arrived packaged well and appear to be a good value. Time will tell. It was an easy order process. If these work out, we will be back for more.

    Clock movement order 10/09/2018
    By Walter Selens
    I received my clocks in time for a big show, and I noticed that some of the motion dials on the backs of the movements have fallen off. I thought pressing them back on was the answer, but they fell off again; and I had to replace the entire movement when I sold the clock.

    Outdoor Clock Upgrade 12/27/2018
    By Gerald Wright
    Just the right parts needed. Fits the face of our Teracotta outdoor clock much better than generic parts put in a few years ago Tom a box store. The hands stuck out about .5” from the face of the clock. Now they are closer and the clock looks like new again.

    SPECIAL PURPOSE 10/18/2016
    I purchased this Movement to replace one that was from a clock that I made out of an old DUAL Turntable. The brass hands with the red second hand look really sharp on the all black turntable. Simple easy to assemble. No instructions needed.

    Very easy to install 05/07/2019
    By Diane Mattson
    The clock works that I ordered fit my project perfectly. The installation was easy.

    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.

    Click the tab "Choose Hands" to see hands that go with this clock motor.

    Optional Accessories

    Closed End Caps - This movement ships with an open end nut so you can also attach a second hand.  For a different look, choose a closed end cap - we have options in black and brass color.

    brass end caps for clock motors quartz

    Brass End Cap

    black end cap for quartz clock motors

    Black End Cap

    Hanger - Choose a hanger that slides over the clock motor if needed for your clock design.

    We also sell regular picture hanging hardware at great discount prices!  Shop here for versatile ways to hang your clocks and pictures.
