Takane High Torque Mini Quartz Clock Motors 

 For Large Clock Hands  (5 " to 17 3/4 ")  Long

 See Large hand page for selection of Long clock hands.

 Made in USA

     Our compact Takane “AA” battery powered mini quartz 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” mini quartz clock movement series 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.

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.
  • Select clock hands from hand page.


    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.
