Hands For Mechanical Clocks
Hands For Mechanical Clocks listed are sold by the dial diameter. This is not the same as hands for a battery operated clocks. Instead hands for mechanical clocks are determined as an after effect of just measuring the dial diameter, from outside of the 9 to outside the 3. For example if you come up with 6 inches, you would order a set of hands for a 6 inch time track. A time track is that outer ring that clocks sometimes have just outside the numerals.
These hands are for mechanical clocks post war 2, of German origin. This will include most mechanical clocks after 1950, they are by far the most common. Post war clocks are made in either Korea, China, or Germany. The Korean and China clocks are pretty easy to identify as they usually say 31 day on it, if this is the situation these hands will not fit. If you would like to be certain your clock is from Germany, you can look at the back plate of the clock movement itself, there will be a stamp engraved that says Made in Germany. These hands will fit 90% of these clocks, with exception of some tubular bell units, and some of the older German units. If you want to be absolutely 100% sure these hands are for you, you can measure the diameter of the posts and match it up with the sizes they specify.
For many dial diameters. These are to fit most German mechanical clock movements. The minute hand has a 2.2mm square mounting hole, the hour hand has a 4.5mm round hole.

Hands for a German mechanical clock such as made by Hermle, Urgos or Kieninger. These hands are for a dial that is 6 inch (15cm) to 6 1/2 inch (17cm) wide from outside the numeral 3 to outside the numeral 9.
American Mechanical hands for Seth Thomas, Sessions, Ansonia, Gilbert, Bristol, Ingram, Welch, New Haven and others. These are for mechanical movements produced prior to WW2. Americans did not produce many clocks after the war. These are for your Antique clock that was made in America it will say USA on the plate usually. The hands come in a couple styles like Obong or Square. This is the mounting hole in the minute hand. The minute hand has a couple popular options for the mounting hole, the hour hand just has a round hole every time, with its bushing. The further back in time you go, and these are considered Antiques, there was no mass production. This means the older the clock, the weirder its going to be you could say. So these hands are not going to fit every clock that is old and from America, but they do cover the mass productions instead. Sometimes is it required for the older antiques to make something work, from what you can get. Such as soldering two hands together to make one good one that fits, or filing a hole bigger with a needle file, things like this.
