I’m going out of my head trying to find inserts from 6” to 12”. I can find the little ones all day long. Also do you know where you can get some variety without paying and arm and a leg. I would like to find some 6-8” clock inserts that have a little style and modernism to them. I’ve been to hundreds of sites and keep finding the same stuff over and over.

Once they get to that size Russ, I think they mostly turn to the face, and movements as two separate pieces. However I have got all my clock, hygrometers and such from klockit as well.

You’d think someone would find some variety. Roman or Arabic is all there seem to be. I may have to piece it together, but that takes online work and can be hit and miss and most of the clock faces are grandfather clocks. Man nostalgia is strong in the clock makers world.

You can make your own face, all you need from them is the movement and the hands. They have some mission/A&C style ones. Lots of options on the clocks, lots of options. Heck, most of theh faces are just paper, more or less. You could print up your own design, if you wanted.

I’ve seen those. I prefer a metal with a bezel and glass crystal. I have one of them now, had to buy everything separately. Took me over an hour.
What I’m looking for is something with different face or maybe just some bars for numbers or dots. Something done professionally that’s unique or at least different than what I see out there.
I know there is some small obscure place that has just what I’m looking for.

Try timesavers.com you can get bezels, bezels w/glass, bezels w/glass and dials, dials, etc.
Their online shopping section leaves a lot to be desired. Best bet is to open or download the online catalog (in pdf format). I think bezels and dials are in part 1.
