||24 Hour High Torque Movement|
We are pleased to introduce a new 24 hour high torque movement. This AA battery powered movement has an hour hand that rotates once every 24 hours and a minute hand that rotates every hour. We also have two new polypropylene clock dials made specifically for use with this 24 hour movement.
Our new MVT24HRSTEP-HT has the American "I" shaft configuration for the hour, minute and second hands, so this movement will operate any of our standard hands. It has a "stepping" second hand motion for optional second hands. A choice of free hour and minute hands under 5" is included in the movement price. All second hands and hands over 5" are available at an added cost.
While this movement is rated as a high torque movement, it is very important that the minute hand of any pair of hands 8" or longer be balanced. Because of the "stepping" second hand motion, we do not recommend that a second hand longer than 5" be used with this movement. We do not recommend using minute hands that are over 12" because this movement does not have as much torque as the rest of our high torque movements, and this movement does not have the "extended minute hand shaft" feature found on our other high torque movements. This can make it difficult to properly align the hands if over 12".
