Westminster Chime Clock Mechanisms for up to 5/8" thick clock dial face

This easy to use full-sized quartz movement plays a portion of the traditional Westminster Chimes melody of a grandfather clock every quarter hour, as well as counting out the hours on the hour and playing the full Westminster melody. A great choice for wall, desk and mantle clocks.

Clock Mechanism is 3 inch wide x 3-3/4 inch high. It runs on a C battery and can run a second hand. Mounting hardware (brass washer, hex nut, and open end nut) included. One year warranty.

This compact movement fits easily into mantle and table clocks and is a wonderful idea for novelty clocks.

    Learn how to set your Westminster Chime Clock Motor

    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.

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