Standard Quartz Clock Movements

North American Made by TAKANE, the mini quartz clock mechanism is the standard in the industry.

Great for the hobbyist or serious clock-maker, our clock motors are absolutely 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.

Standard Quartz Clock Movements drive hands up to 4-7/8" long, functional in clocks up to 12" in diameter.

For larger clocks, click here to choose a high torque (more power) clock motor and longer hands.

  • What is the difference between Standard Quartz Movements & High Torque Movements?

    High Torque Clock Motors are more powerful - made specifically to handle the extra weight of longer clock hands up to 18" in length.
    This means you can make a clock with a clock face/dial that is 42" wide or even greater!
    Comparatively, standard movements run clock hands up to 4.5 inches long.

  • What are the different types of clock movements?

    1) — Step Style High Torque Movements
    These movements will make a very slight stepping sound & motion, but do not drive a second hand.

    2) — Continuous Sweep Clock Movements
    These movements drive the longer hands and operate silently, as well as drive a second hand.

    3) — High Torque Pendulum Movements
    These movements can drive the longer hands as well as a pendulum up to 25" long.

    4) — High Power Chiming Clock Movements

  • How do I choose the right size clock motor & hands?

    How to choose clock motors and hands for replacement 


    1) Refer to the figure above, or » Click Here for helpful info (a new window or tab will open)  


    2)The size of hands is based on the length of the minute hand from the mounting hole to the end of the minute hand. (Figures 3 & 4 above) Most can be slightly trimmed if need be, and they are all USA made of aluminum. Our customers also spray paint them.


    3) Our clock motors are sized by the thickness of the dial the movements can go through. EG Q-64 below will go through up to 5/8" thick material. If your material is too thick, consider removing some to in-set the clock. Or if your clock face material is too thin, consider adding some material behind the face so the hands will sit closer to your clock face.

  • What's included with my purchase?

    Listed price for motors includes the mounting hardware for your clock. (Washers, Nuts, Bolts and Brass End Caps)

    Note: Built in hangers as found on standard clock movements are not recommended due to the weight of the clocks you will build.

    We recommend checking out our selection of Picture Hanging Hardware

    Prices for clock hands includes a minute and hour hand.
    (Sweep 10" second hands sold separately, available for Continuous Sweep motors only)
