Minute hands are measured from the tip of the hand to the center of the mount hole. Refer to the Minute Hand Measurement diagram.

If you have a dial and need to determine the length of hands you need, measure from the center hole of the dial plate to the outside edge of the time ring (A). It is, in other words, half the diameter of the time ring. This measurement will give you the needed minute hand length.

The size of the hour hand will correspond to the length of the minute hand. It is NOT necessary to measure the hour hand. If there is no time ring, measure from the outside edge of the numerals or markers. With some dial styles, longer or shorter hands look fine, depending on personal taste.

Asked by: Mikey
Hi Mikey, we are unable to provide a replacement recommendation based off the 12888 reference. Can you please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 or klockit@klockit.com with the measurements below? We'll then be able to help you find a new movement. (1) Thickness of material the shaft will have to travel through including the clock face and any material the face will be mounted to, or threaded portion of hand shaft (maximum dial thickness) (2) Total length of the hand shaft on the movement. Please measure the entire length of the shaft from the base of the movement where the shaft comes out of the movement to the tip where the hands attach to (total hand shaft length) (3) Your movement's case dimensions (4) Minute hand length from the center mount hole to the tip

I have a Howard Miller wall clock. It has a 12in minute hand. I have not been able to get a large enough movement to be to maintain the correct time.
