MCM / MID-CENTURY STYLE CLOCK MOTOR & HANDS KIT
This is our standard clock motor and hands kit that we use on all of our wall and mantle clocks, and is generic enough to work with most other clock brands as well. It includes a set of corresponding Midcentury/MCM style hands, offered in our unique blend of colors. Note that we offer this in both our Mid-Century (Broad) and Modern (Narrow) hand styles.
This clock kit includes a silent continuous-sweep movement, which means the clock hands move smoothly without any ticking noise. The high torque motor ensures accurate time even with heavier hands; it can support our standard 4-5" clock hands, our oversized 7" hands, and even larger custom hands if needed. It is powered by a single AA battery (not included.)
If you are buying this as a replacement motor for one of our existing clocks and you still have the original hands, we will still include a new set of hands with each motor just in case your old hands don't fit perfectly or they get bent or broken as you are replacing the motor.
Please Note: This motor and hand set will work with just about any clock body (just needs a face with a hole!) so it can be used on other brands or DIY clock projects, for all you handy Do-It-Yourselfers out there!
