Types of movement
This type of movement is best known by everybody, a reliable movement that gives a little ticking sound. The step movement is available with a short shaft and a long shaft. The size of the shaft is crucial and depends on the dept of the case.
This sweep movement is not making a ticking sound! For this reason it is suitable for all rooms including bedrooms. If you need to replace your movement you can recognise a silent movement to it's red wheel on the back.
Radio controlled movement
This type of movement is especially for Radio Controlled clocks (often referred to as RC or DCF). The movement is set to an atomic clock by radio signals This ensures that your clock always displays the correct time and you do not have to change your clock to summer- or wintertime anymore. The Radio Controlled movements are controlled by the DCF77 atomic clock located near Frankfurt in Germany. This atomic clock gives a signal within a radius of about 1500 kilometers. Our clocks represent the Central European Time (CET). Note: England is not in this time zone.
This type of movement is used for clocks with a pendulum. The pendulum is decorative and, other than with mechanical movements, is not from influence on the time keeping of the hands. The pendulum can hold a maximum weight of 90gram.
Some clocks need special movements and are not standard available in our webshop. In some cases replacement is to complex and not possible. We, like no other, know that a clock can have high emotional value so you can always contact us to see if we can help out.
