Clock Mechanisms

Clock Mechanisms

Our clocks use quartz mechanisms that are both CE marked and RoHS Certified.

Our larger clocks are now supplied with a European made high torque mechanism. The arrow shaped minute hands (21cm long measured from the dial centre) and hour hands (12.5cm) are made from metal and have a matt black finish.

What is the CE mark?

The CE mark is applied to products to indicate that they conform with the relevant EU directives on health and safety and/or environmental protection.

What is RoHS Certified?

Since 1st July 2006 clock movements and hands sold with the EU have also had to be RoHS approved. It related to the Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
