Topic tags/keywords: clock movements question

I visited a local Hobby Shop and found quartz clock movements for $7. Not terribly expensive, but not what I was thinking they would be. I found a place online that sells the movement and hands separately and it would be about $3. I’m not sure that I’ll find it cheaper, but wanted to get input. Price is not king, I don’t want a piece of junk that will flake out in a few months, but I also don’t think the most expensive on the market = best quality either. Thanks for your thoughts, considerations, and ramblings.

I second Klockit . I have bought a few movements and dials from them. They have an employee (Chris) who answers questions in their forums, if you have any.

Those are impressive Charles, but I’m looking for the 3” quartz clock movements for wall clocks.
