Common Questions

and tips for choosing Clock Kits

Choose a Mounting Cup based on your preferred battery powered clock movement - C-Cell (larger) or AA-Cell

  • What is the difference between High Torque and Standard Quartz Clock 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. » Jump to Motors and Hands for Large Clocks

  • What are the different types of standard/mini clock movements?

    1) USA Made Step Style by Takane (AA batteries) These movements will make a very slight stepping sound.

    2) Continuous Sweep Clock Movements operate virtually silently with a sweeping second hand motion.

    3) » Click Here for Pendulum, Chiming, Pendulum + Chime Movements in AA Cell or C Cell options.

  • Clock Kits Shopping Tips

    1) Choose your movement. We recommend the shortest clock shaft. AA powered: Q-65 (Step Motion High Torque) , Q-66 (Sweep Motion High Torque) OR C cell powered: Q-20 (Step Motion High Torque) or Q-67 (Sweep Motion High Torque)

    2) Choose a Mounting Cup based on your clock movement.

    3) Choose hands. How? Take your desired clock face diameter and divide by 2, then subtract the height of your numbers.

    Example: A 42" Clock Face will usually have 4" Tall Numbers. 42 divided by 2 is 21. 21 minus 4 is 17. So clock hands in the 17 or 18" range will sit nicely with your numbers.

    Example: A 24 inch Clock Face will usually have 2 inch tall numbers. 24 divided by 2 is 12. 12 minus 2 is 10. So choose 10 inch clock hands.
