National Time Large Outdoor Type Clock Movements and Hands 3MR Series


These clock movements are built to your requirements and come complete with the mechanism, a pair of standard hands and the manual reset control switch. All mechanisms use a worm & worm gear drive. To order a clock mechanism, the proper hand size should be determined by measuring from the top of the 12 to the bottom of the 6 on your clock face design. The minute hand length is the dimension from the dial center to the tip of the hand. The hour hand will be proportionate. Shaft extensions are not adjustable in the field. Consult for larger requirements or details not shown. We can provide these movements with longer hand shafts (for up to 10" thick material) priced at about $20.00 per inch.

The 3MR series is a direct drive clock mechanism utilizing a single reversible motor. Hands cannot be manually turned. A standard unit can mount to a dial up to 3/4" thick.
