The dial size stated in the catalog is the measurement edge to edge (A). The time ring diameter is measured from the outside edge of the time ring (B).

Note: The diameter of movement hand shafts vary as well as center holes on dials. Check the diameter of your movement hand shaft to insure that the shaft will fit through the center hole in your dial selection.

what if it just says so many inches and doesnt specify edge to edge or the face of the clock size? I have a lot of trouble buying a living room wall clock because they mostly say 15 inches, 11 inches, etc... Is that the whole size of the clock or no?

Asked by: Confused in NJ
It does sounds like that would be the size of the whole clock, not just the clock face/dial. We have some tips and tricks on this measurement, and will reach out soon via email.

I have a clock that I made and the numbers are 3" from ctr. I needed a long shaft mechanical box in which I order 3/4" seems like the time is a little fast. Is there something I can do?
