The clock movement is likely powered by a quartz crystal oscillator, known for its accuracy and reliability in timekeeping. Quartz movements are popular for their precision and low maintenance.
The term “sweep movement” refers to the continuous, smooth motion of the clock’s second hand. Unlike traditional ticking movements, which move the second hand in individual steps, a sweep movement provides a silent and seamless motion.
Needles, or clock hands, are included in the kit. These are usually made of lightweight and durable materials. The hour and minute hands are typically longer and more substantial, while the second hand is often more delicate.
