Second Hand for Battery Movements

Second hands for quartz clock movements. Quartz movements are ones that take a battery. The second hands come in Black, Gold or Red.

The measurement is from the mounting post all the way out to the tip. Alternately, you can measure from the center of the hole in the clock face straight out to the number 3. That will also give you the correct length to order.

Furthermore, if it is a bit too long, snip the tip with a pair of scissors. So these are very easy to install. The hand has a post that simply pushes onto the pin in the center of the post. It is a friction fit so just push it on.

Sometimes the barrel on these second hands can pinch together making it difficult to push it onto the post. If this occurs, there is a slit in the barrel that can be pried open a tiny bit. So this allows it to fit onto the post.

Conversely, if the barrel is too loose, just use a pair of needle nose pliers to squeeze it together. That enables it to stay on the pin without falling off. These second hands are optional on all mini movements which means the clock can run with or without it.

Hi all! I just installed a new Electronic Quartz Movement, model #U40p to replace worn, broken movement in my 25 year old Herman Miller Chime, Pendulum wall clock.( It comes with speaker in a black plastic box to mount in case, for reference). I finished install and it sounds wonderful…like real tubular chimes. Even on full volume, it’s not too loud tho. My older unit was actually louder!
My question tho: I installed the second hand by pushing it’s pin into the hole in shaft tip. Trouble is: I rotates WITH the minute hand! And it shouldn’t! Anyone know why? Thank you.
