When High Torque Movement Clock Hands are Crucial

High torque movement clock hands are, basically, those that are as well heavy and/or too wish for an average motor to turn adequately. Typically, (min) clock hands requiring a high torque movement are longer than 5 inches. The measurement is conventionally made from the center of the mounting hole to the pointer.

But high torque clock movement minute hands are available from vendors as long as 18 inches. This indicates that the diameter of the matching dial is over 3 feet across. Now that's a huge wall clock!

There are, of course, many, lots of clocks much less than 1 foot in diameter. Certainly, there are many that the majority of minute hands are well under 6 inches in size. For this reason, the 5-inch restriction for minute hands that can be transformed using normal movements is not a serious detriment for the majority of clockmakers.
