This totally updated model is the only quartz pendulum mechanical Bim-Bam on the market today! Additional setting controls have been added to the back to make set-up easier. The threaded shaft is now 1/8” longer, so the maximum dial thickness is increased to ½”. A second hand function has also been added. This is still the only ‘D’ cell battery operated mechanical Bim-Bam on the market today and now it’s better than ever. It still has the full rich sound of a mechanical Bim-Bam movement, with the convenience and accuracy of a modern quartz clock movement. The best of both worlds!
This Bim-Bam movement strikes two different copper rods on the half and the hour, with an hour count on the hour. A 16″ adjustable pendulum is included upon request, but it can also be operated without a pendulum. The arc in which the pendulum swings is 1” back from the front of the clock movement.

**When choosing the proper batteries for your clock, please consider the following information: There are many brands of alkaline batteries available on the market today, but there are several brands out there that just don’t perform well in clocks. We recommend using Rayovac or Duracell brand. Other brands, such as Energizer, have extra plastic coating on the negative end of the battery, which can cause clocks to malfunction or not work properly at all. Alkaline batteries are the only type of battery that should be used in clocks. Lithium powered or re-chargeable batteries will cause your clock to malfunction, or not function at all. Lithium and rechargeable batteries are meant for “high-drain” devices, such as digital cameras, etc. Alkaline batteries are best used in “low-drain” devices, which includes clock movements.
