Works and keeps good time
on February 15, 2014
For Pete's (whoever Pete is) sake don't throw away clocks you like. These little gizmos are easy to swap out. Just pull off the clock hands one at a time (it might take a bit of elbow grease), and voila! it all just comes apart for you. In my case I wanted to keep my original hands as this unit had hands that were an inch or two longer than I needed. My old hands slipped right onto the posts for this clock. Works like a charm. It looked like there were three things to ensure when purchasing this thing:
1) that the post for the hands was round (in my case) vs the oblong shapes I've seen on other clocks.
2) that the post length wasn't too long to fit under the crystal of my clock (it was slightly, so I put the crystal back on but didn't snap it completely back in place, thus giving the post and hands a bit of headroom).
3) that the unit allowed for hour/minute AND second hands vs just an hour/minute. In my case I wanted the second hand movement too.
