Since 1971 Clock Parts has been a manufacturer of mechanisms, inserts and dial faces. Our specialty in clock movements and motors coupled with all the necessary replacement components bring our customers the highest quality, advanced technology and affordable wholesale pricing.
As a family owned private company located in Culver City, California, we have maintained a tradition of excellent customer service and quality components. Our quality is a result 40 plus years of experience of being one of the top rated manufacturers in the world.
This experience has guided us in the designing and engineering of all of our components. Our customers look to us to bring to them new and inventive products that made their projects stand out.
Our Auto Set movement is an example of this type of innovative approach. This movement has eliminated the need for atomic movements. One reason high torque atomic motors were used was because they automatically adjusted for the spring and fall time changes.
The problem with the atomic movements was their reliability to receive the spring and fall time changes and make the proper time adjustment. Atomic movements’ reliability has always been an issue. Our auto set motor solved this problem.
This motor allows our customers to build clocks that can be placed anywhere without the need for the movement to receive a time broadcast to display accurate time. The Auto Set motor has the daylight saving time changes programmed into the motor so it occurs automatically. There is no need to receive a radio broadcast.
Our approach as a company goes beyond good engineering and design. A main focus point for us as a company is customer service. We are always concern on how well we provide customer service to our patrons.
Our customer service starts with informative videos on our website to help and assist our customers in the proper selection of motors, hands and dial faces.
Our blog section on our website provides additional information for our customers to read. We couple these informative blogs and videos with technical telephone support.
