Quartz Clock Hands

These are quartz Clock Hands that will fit any battery movement we offer. There are two types of quartz hands in the world. One is the China standard and one is the American standard. The China way of using the hands is with round holes in both the hour and minute hands.

Comparatively, the American style has an oblong mounting hole in the minute hand and a round hole for the hour hand that fits what is known as an "I" shaft. All of the hands that we offer fit "I" shaft movements only. In other words all of them will fit the quartz movements that we sell.

When replacing a quartz clock movement, the old hands may fit the new movement just fine. However, if there is an oblong hole in the minute hand, chances are good that it will fit.

The hour hand will fit the new quartz movement either way. To clarify, it is the minute hand (the longer of the two hands) that is a concern. In any event, if in doubt, it is best to order new hands for the new movement upon checking out. This way it will be all set and you will have everything you need for a smooth movement swap out.

Measuring and Ordering New Hands

Quartz clock hands come together as a set, but you only measure the minute hand when replacing them. Measure it, the long hand, from the mounting hole to the tip. The shorter hand, the hour hand, comes with the minute hand and is proportionally smaller.

For larger dials that are more than 10 inches wide, see our High Torque movement and Hands section. As for Second hands, they will fit the high torque clock movements, however they do not come in long lengths like the minute hands do.

Mounting Quartz Clock Hands

Mounting quartz clock hands is easy. First put on the hour hand, with it’s round hole. As a friction fit, just push it on. The minute hand, with its oblong mounting hole, and goes on next.

Fit it onto the “I” on the top of the shaft. To tighten the hands use the nut with a hole if using a second hand. However, use the cap nut if not using a second hand.
