Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clock Movement Quartz Square Antique Black Hand 1/2" Kit (Watch)
This came promptly and worked great for me. I did have to add spacers to the back so the hands would not rub the plastic face cover. The 1/2" designation was nebulous to me so here are some specific measurements for what came to me. Housing 56 mm square sides. 13 mm deep back to front. Threaded shaft diameter = 7.5 mm, Threaded shaft length = 16 mm, plastic part of shaft for hour hand length 4 mm, metal part for minute hand length = 4 mm. Second hand inserts into the minute shaft. Hands radius, that is from shaft center to tip of hands Hour + 72 mm, minute =103 mm, sec,= 101 mm.
These are important to know so you'll know if they will fit into your clock. I could have used a shorter shaft but ordered the longest one knowing I had room in the back to add washers. I had saved the hands from the old unit since the shaft configuration seems standard across every face size I've seen.

Extremely helpful and detailed information. Thank you for using precise measurements in mm, instead of fractions of an inch. I would have loved to order this mechanism but now realize the hands are too long.
