Quartex Brand

Our popular Atomic Clock Movement auto-synchronizes with the official U.S. time in Fort Collins, Colorado up to 5 times per day. Also known as radio controlled, these atomic movements are the most accurate clock movements on the market today. Auto-sets for DST assuring you have the correct time, every time.

Use these atomic clock movements in your next project, or replace your old quartz motors with an updated clock movement that sets itself! A free pair of hands is included with our quartz atomic clock movements. In order to ensure that your radio controlled clock motor receives the best signal strength, we do not recommend using this movement with a metal clock face. Operates in the Continental U.S. only in Pacific, Mountain, Central and Eastern time zones. Use this hanger to hang your clock quickly and efficiently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good At This Price I have built four clock using the Quartex Atomic Clock motor. It has been easy to install, and with a couple of restarts, easy to get it set. It works perfectly. My only complaints are 1) the case is too thick for some of my clock designs, and 2) there needs to be a version with a longer stem for some things I want to build. I have been able to get around both of these challenges so far; it was a real dilemma in the case of the pictured clock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! I wanted a clock that would set itself so I wouldn't have to worry about it once the structure was put together. The Klockit clock works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Bought this to replace a nice looking clock I own that had a broken movement. Installation was straight forward, and it picked up the radio signal pretty quick. I've had this movement for about a month, and it still keeps atomic time. It's slightly larger than a standard movement, so you're going to want to make sure it will fit before purchasing. It was easy enough to install I'm tempted to replace all my analogue quartz clocks with an atomic movement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth even with the Little Challenges Bought two units and had to modify both clocks to get units to fit in housing. The hour, minute and second hands were a little thinner than the originals and the hour hands have a slit in them for attachment. One unit second hand was stopping at the 29 second spot and would stay there for a while and then resume function. Emailed for fix to which the reply was to cut 1/8 inch off of second hand to get a better balance. I decided to try re-balance the hands as I wasn't excited about shortening the second hand. The re-balanced worked. Overall, I am pleased with the units and happy that they are keeping good time which is why the old quartz ones were replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! I bought this movement to replace the one in a reproduction vintage clock that sits on our mantle. The new movement was easy to install, seems to keep excellent time, and never has to be reset for Standard vs. Daylight savings time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DST switch doesn't seem to work on ET Well as another commenter noted, the value of the DST switch doesn't seem to do anything here now that we're on DST. I've just re-synced the clock 4 times which it's happily done, but never to the proper EDT. It forever stays on EST regardless of the value of the DST on/off switch on the back. Temporary solution is to flip to CST but ultimately the movement will need to be replaced. My recommendation would be to just try one of the set & forget movements. I'm not sure the atomic ones are worth the trade off assuming you can set the clock for yourself the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth It Movement installed easily. Adjusted to Colorado Clock smoothly, and has been keeping exact time effortlessly. It does exactly what your description said it would do, and yes, I plan on buying more as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really accurate I bought 5 movements for similar bodies I made as Christmas gifts for my children. I expect that the clocks will long outlive me and that I have given my children a legacy that will keep them on time. LOL. Absolutely no problems with the movements. Lining up the finished clocks, even the sweep second hands were synched.

Does this make the traditional 'tick tick' Sound or is it quiet?

Is this a high torque movement that can operate and take care of my 10-12" hands?

Asked by: jim70
Hi Jim, this atomic clock movement can power up to 7" long clock hands. To power 10-12" clock hands, you'll need to use a high torque clock movement: http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-aaaag.html

I have  a model 88303 sky scan clock.  Will this movement work or would it be better if I mailed you the old part and had you match it?

Asked by: vega
Hi Vega, we are unable to provide a replacement recommendation based off that 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 the proper replacement for your sky scan clock. (1) Thickness of material the shaft will have to travel through including the clock face and any material the face will be mounted to (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 was looking at the total length of the hands on the chart - it said 7/16" - what does that refer to? I measured my hands total length and it was 7".Please advise, I am in desperate need to replace the battery pack/holder/movement? of my FAVORITE clock.

Asked by: TJ Smith
Hi TJ, "Total Hand Shaft Length" refers to the hand shaft on the clock movement. That means from the base of the clock movement to the tip of the hand shaft, that length is 7/16". Look at the diagrams next to the ? icons above, specifically Maximum Dial Thickness to determine which clock movement you'll need. "Maximum Dial Thickness" refers to the thickness of material the hand shaft will travel through, including the clock dial and any material the dial is mounted to. The maximum thicknesses listed below have 1/8" built in to accommodate for mounting hardware. If you have any questions on this information, or need help finding the right length for your project, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548 or klockit@klockit.com.

Asked by: Detlev
