Choosing Between a Quartz or Mechanical Clock Movement

Choosing Between a Quartz or Mechanical Clock Movement


One of the basic decisions to make when building a clock is the type of movement to use. Both quartz and mechanical movements offer several advantages for particular types of clocks.

You'll want to consider several factors when choosing a movement for your clock. Cost, accuracy, and mounting procedures will all play an important role in your decision.

We offer a full line of quality quartz and mechanical clock movements, and we're sure there is one to match your clockmaking needs. Whether you're building a clock from scratch or replacing the movement from an old clock, you can be assured that the movements offer by Klockit are of the highest quality. And you'll find these movements to be among the most affordable in the industry. See our How Do I... link for measuring instructions to assist you in your choice of movement. Or visit our How Do I... link for specific information on Selecting a Mechanical Movement.
