Hands description

These hands will fit any quartz clock movement from clockworks. The hour hand will have a round hole, and the minute hand will have an oblong hole. The oblong hole just fits over the movements "I" post and than the nut goes on top to hold it down.

So, measure Quartz clock hands by the minute hand only, from the mounting hole to the end. The hour hand comes with the pair, but only measure the minute hand to get the correct size. The hour hand will be proportionate in size. Of course we have many styles and sizes to choose from for quartz hands so please feel free to browse our selections.

How to measure the minute hand

These are sold as a pair with both hour and minute hands. Of course, styles vary depending on length.

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.

Quartz clock hand compatibility

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.

I need a 28mm – 31mm shaft and arms that are less than 2 inches. do you have something that will fit that need? It is for a table box clock that my son built for me in carpentry class. I need the longer shaft to go through the piece of wood. Please let me know.

With the serpentine quartz hands #H1 I just purchased along with a battery operated clock movement, which hand goes on first, the minute hand with the oblong opening or the hour hand with the circle opening with the brass grommet in the hole?

The serpentine quartz clock hands aren’t presently available in 5″ length. Will you be getting more in . I have an older mechanical grandfather clock I want to convert to quartz movement and these hands are closest to the originals. Thanks.

Does the chiming pendulum movement QU22 accommodate a second hand? I was looking at the Serpentine Quartz hands #H1 and it doesn’t mention a second hand.

On the quartz clock movement with pendulum SKU3-316 does it come with the nut to hold the hands on. I think I have the correct hands but not the nut to hold them on
