Quartz Clock Movement Thread 12mm


In Stock: More than 100 available


This 12mm thread quartz clock mechanism features a smooth and continuous sweeping motion. Thanks to this design, you won’t be annoyed or distracted by the sound of ticking hands. Instead the hands move around the clock in a smooth gliding motion.

Product Features:

  • Silent, continuous sweep clock movement
  • Thread Length: 12mm   
  • Shaft Length: 19mm
  • Battery Size: AA (not included)

Each clock movement comes with a metal nut, and metal and rubber washers (as pictured).

Choosing the correct size movement/mechanism

To choose the proper shaft length measure the thickness of your clock face and allow approximately 3mm  for the nut, washer and hanger. Choose a thread length that will accommodate the total clearance.

Assembling your clock

  1. Drill an 8.5 mm hole through the clock face to insert the movement shaft.
  2. If using a hanger, place this over the raised collar.
  3. Place the rubber washer onto the shaft.
  4. Insert shaft through clock face from the back and ensure it is positioned correctly.
  5. Thread the brass washer onto the shaft, followed by the brass nut. Tighten until finger tight.
  6. Gently press the hour hand onto the shaft and position at 12 o’clock.
  7. Then press the minute hand onto the shaft and position at 12 o’clock.
  8. Press sweep hand gently onto the pin inside the shaft (optional)
  9. Make sure there is clearance between the hands. You may need to bend the hands slightly to ensure that they do not catch on each other or on any design elements.

Very Good customer service
Bought a Clock movement from Ceramicraft to replace my old broken classic looking clock. The item is exactly as described ( the measurements were accurate ). There was a delay in receiving the item. However, it is expected during the global pandemic. But, whenever I write an email asking for an update. I have received a swift response. Hope to shop more with you in future.

battery operated wall clock mechanism
I bought similar item from two other sellers before buying this one from Ceramicraft. This is the only one that worked properly. People are easy to deal with, product is perfect. Thank you.
