Clock Dials

Notes on Clock Dials
There are two basic types of clock dials available. There are dials that are not specific for any one clock, and than there are the dials that are for one particular mechanical movement series. When the dial is not for any particular movement, it will have the center hole for the hand shaft drilled only and the dial will have no feet posts on the back. These can be used or adapted for any style clock mechanical or battery.

Matching up Clock Glass
The glass has to fit into the bezel and has to be perfect, not too small so it falls out of the bezel and not so big it will not fit into the bezel clips. So to get the proper size glass, measure exactly how wide you would like the glass so it will not be too big for the bezel clips and not so small it falls out the front.

The following is a description of drilling a clock dial. Clock dials often only have the center hole for the clock hand post to come through.
