Powerful Quartz Tower-Clock Movement

Powerful Quartz Tower-Clock Movement for running the longest hands possible with a battery. Please note this unit is not weatherproof. It would have to be in a weatherproof clock case to be outside.

The MOST powerful tower clock movement and is the strongest on the market before getting into the electrical units. They have special gears on the inside of the unit that are stronger in order to take more weight. This one is stronger than any other High Torque quartz we offer and will also last longer with the very long hands.

The diagram describes how to measure the post to get the correct length. This is the portion that has the threads on the movement that goes through the back of the dial face. It needs to be long enough to mount the hex nut onto this post, on the front of the dial face. This means the movement mounts to the dial and nothing else. Then you can put the hour hand on, and then the minute hand with its nut. The white post that the hands go on has an extra long extension than the regular high torque units to accommodate the special longer hands.

They have a threaded post diameter of 5/16 and a case dimension of 2-3/4'H x 2-3/16'W x 1'D

The long hands for these movements are sold separately

What size clock face will this accomodate? I need one that will work with an 1.25″ of material.
