Quartex Brand

The Quartex® High Torque Quartz Clock Movement (12 or 24-Hour) is a powerful quartz clock movement capable of running the longest clock hands on the market today. Extra-long clock hands (sold separately) are perfect for use with these high torque clock movements. This clock motor will drive hands from 8" to 17-1/2" in length. This clock movement features an encapsulated gear train that's designed to keep foreign matter out of the gears for years of trouble-free operation.

The 12 hour clock movements are similar to our standard quartz clock movements, but offer high torque power. The 24 hour clock movement offers the same high torque power, but the time keeping is from midnight to midnight and is divided into 24 hours, which is indicated by the hours passed since midnight from 00:00 through 23:59; also known as military time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power I've bought three of these movements in the last few months and they're all working like a champ even with the extra long hands I used
Date published: 2016-01-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great! Don't let the compact size fool you, this little movement will handle the big hands (10.5 inch) without any problems. I bought two for retro look clocks I made. Price was good and delivery was right on time. I will order again for my next big clock project. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed review First, the good stuff. I purchased this movement and long hands (14") and had no problems attaching the movement to my clock, and attaching the hands. The movement was strong enough to move the large hands around the face. However, no matter how I "tweaked" the hands, they kept getting hung up on each other and I was unable to use them. Klockit sent me shorter hands and with a LOT of bending, I was able to make them work. I don't really know the solution - perhaps more space on the shaft between the hands? I do want to mention that Klockit worked with me until I had a set of working hands, and I would definitely order from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly I purchased this with extra long clock hands (letter I) to repurpose an old wire spool. I chose the longer shaft so I could mount it easier on the spool. I clamped it with an overflow drain cover (from lowes) and coated all with black spray paint . @refurnished.co

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When things go wrong Things do go wrong from time to time and it what the supplier does about it that counts. In this case the mechanism stopped working after two weeks. I changed batteries etc still no joy. I called the technical help line and they were absolutely wonderful. Asked me what I had tried and then without any hesitation told me they would send a completely new unit straight away. It arrived a few days later. Once installed it has not missed a beat. You would never get this sort of service from an off shore supplier. Its worth paying a little extra for this sort of service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I was working on a DIY wall clock, the kit that I bought was cute but cheap.... The hands and mechanism were cheap. Klockit had exactly what I needed to complete my project at an affordable price! Love you Klockit!

I am making a 30" clock. My hands are 12". I want a high torque,continuous clock movement. My dial is 3/4" thick. What should I use?

Asked by: Bebe
Hi Bebe, #10115 above is the closest option but only will be able to travel through 11/16" worth of material. Your material would have to be thinned in order to use this clock movement. If you have any questions on this information, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548.

How does the second hand attach? Does the shaft have an internal thread?

Asked by: Paul1111
Hi Paul, the second hand has a stem that's pushed into the center of the hand shaft.
Answered by: Klockit
Date published: 2016-09-23

Does this support a second hand?

Asked by: Paul1111
Hi Paul, yes it does (Group A), but we don't recommend it. The longest second we currently offer is 5 7/8" long and will be much shorter in comparison to most of our extra long clock hands.

do these have a back on them or do I need to purchase one?

Asked by: Serdy
HI Serdy, the back of this clock movement is enclosed by the case, except for the battery compartment (see image above). We recommend #10084 movement cover if needed for your project: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-10084.html.

I would like to mount this behind a piece of wood. What is the thickest piece that this will handle? What hands would you reccomend?

Asked by: rabaut
Hi Rabaut, # 10115 can go through a maximum of 11/16" thick material. We recommend using a pair of our extra long clock hands with this high torque clock movement: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-66255a.html.

Do you have units with 1/2 and 1-1/4 inch threads?

Asked by: Old man Wade
Hi Old man Wade, #10160 has 1/2" threads and we don't currently offer a clock movement with threads of 1 1/4" in length. The closest option is #10161 which has a total shaft length of 1 3/16" and can go through a maximum of 3/4" thickness.

I was wondering what thread is used on the very tip of the shaft where the hour / second hands are?

Asked by: Josh
Hi Josh, this clock movement does not have threads on the very tip of the hand shaft where the clock hands are attached. We'll reach out to you via email with more clarification.
