Seiko's Ultra-Thin Clock Movement.

This quartz clock movement features step second motion which is a 'start-stop-start' motion that precisely measures the time in one second intervals. Accurate to within +/- 15 seconds per month. 

Special Features

  • Quartz Accuracy - Stabilized quartz crystal assures high accuracy to within ±15 seconds per month.
  • Reliability - A minimum number of parts (17 in entire motor) reduces wear within the motor and assures trouble-free operation. The motor is completely enclosed in its case, so dust and dirt cannot get into the motor.
  • Compact Size - The motor is approximately 2-1/8”x 2-1/8” x 1/2”.
  • Battery Life - The motor runs approximately two years on a fresh “AA” battery, not included.
  • Step Second Motion - The second hand, if used, moves in exact one second steps.

These Seiko motors will operate a second hand, but second hands are considered optional. See the bottom of the motor page for the link to our selection of second hands. Seiko motors require a .034 - .035 diameter second hand bushing as shown below. This hole size is too large for many other motors..All models have a 5/16" shaft diameter so a 3/8" mounting hole is the correct size to drill in your case.

High Torque Mini Quartz Clock Movement - "AA" Cell 

Made in USA 

Our compact “AA” battery powered miniquartz clock motor model was designed specifically for use with today’s new larger clocks. They are the most powerful quartz clock movements on the market today for larger clocks-hour and minute hand spacing!

Our new “HT” series clock movements were designed specifically for use with large clock hands. The distance between where the hour and minute hands are installed has been increased! This increased distance will help to prevent longer hands from binding and leaves enough room to accommodate the counterweights that are commonly used on large minute hands. 

Seiko Double Electric Chime Clock Movement Pendulum

With just a flip of a switch, our electronic double chime movements offer either Westminster or Whittington melodies.

The chimes sound every 15 minutes with the full melody and hour count on the hour. The pendulum model is supplied with an adjustable (up to 20”) single hook rod and 2-3/4” or bob (please see pendulun/bob selection for other size choices).

American Made-Quartz Pendulum Clock Movement

This is our smallest pendulum clock movement and has been "standard" in American manufacturing for years. We have changed the back of the movement so it is better able to sit flat against a wall. You can choose from 4 shaft lengths and 3 sizes of pendulum bobs. All pendulums consist of a 16" adjustable pendulum with your choice of 3 pendulum bob sizes. You can easily trim the pendulum rod to any length under 16".

This quartz movement is manufactured in Germany by Hermle, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of both mechanical and battery operated movements and is known to have the finest sound of any battery powered movement available. 

When you select the Westminster chime mode, the chime will sound every 15 minutes and play a part of the melody. The full melody is played on the hour plus the hour count. The bim-bam mode sounds on the half hour and hour plus counts the hour.

Recordable Chime Clock Movement

Westminster / Whittington / Recordable Chime/Non-Pendulum

 We permanently programmed an hour only Westminster and Whittington chime with hour count, then gave it a remote 2" speaker for good sound quality, and an increased the volume level so that this is now the loudest chime movement we have.

The recordable chime feature is totally unique. Whatever 10 second sound you record will play every hour on the hour. The model has a built in microphone and a 1/8" jack if you would like to use a higher quality microphone for your recording, or patch into another device The connecting wires are 12" long.


Synchron clock movements provide for a sweep second hand and split second accuracy for either consumer, industrial, or laboratory clocks and other time keeping applications.

The type "C" movement is a brass movement with smooth continuous hand movement. Active lifetime routinely exceeds 20 years. Self-resetting is an option with the "C" movement for customers who need to synchronize multiple clocks to a single master clock.
