German Euroshaft Step Clock Movement By UTS (16mm Shaft)
German Euroshaft Quartz Clock Movement With Fittings
This German Euro shaft quartz clock movement by UTS features a stepping (ticking) movement with all necessary fittings to assemble. Please read all of the information in the description below carefully to ensure the movement will be an appropriate fit prior to purchasing.
The movement has a total shaft length of 16mm and is compatible with clocks that have a dial thickness between 4-8mm.
Please Note: Hands are NOT included with this movement by default, however we do have compatible hands which are available to purchase seperately HERE.
If your hands are larger than 160mm in length, you will need to purchase a different high torque movement- available to purchase HERE.
What Is The Difference Between Euroshaft Movements? (Standard, Takane & German UTS)
The main difference between a standard Euroshaft movement (which also includes Takane Euroshaft movements) and German made UTS movements are the dimensions of the minute shaft, which correlate to slightly different hand hole (collet) dimensions in the minute hand. In German UTS Euroshaft movements, the minute hand dimensions are slightly smaller (3.5mm x 2.8mm), as opposed to a standard or Takane Euroshaft movement (4mm x 3mm). The hour hand dimensions are the same across the different Euroshaft movement types that we supply.
In addition, a German UTS Euroshaft movement uses a centre fixing nut to secure the movement to a clock (which requires a slightly larger dial hole and thickness), whilst a standard Euroshaft movement instead uses a hex nut and a brass thread. For these reasons, it is important to measure your existing hand hole dimensions, the diameter of your dial hole, and the dial thickness prior to purchasing, to ensure the movement will be a suitable replacement. There are instructions on how to obtain this information further below in the description.

This movement is a direct replacement for many older German clock movements. Some of these movements include: Older U.T.S models, Hermle 2100 series, Junghans 737, 738, Kienzle, Hechinger movements.
This movement may come stamped as ‘UTS’, ‘HERMLE’, ‘AMS’ or ‘JUNGHANS’ - they are all identical movements made in Germany.
The Importance Of Getting Correct Measurements
In order to find a correct replacement, you will first need to gather a few measurements and information from your current movement. A model number alone does not provide enough information to replace a movement- you will also need to determine the following:
1. Type of movement/hands you are replacing (press fit, euro shaft or high torque)
Your current minute hand will be able to easily indicate what type of movement you have. Simply examine the hole in your minute hand.
- If it is round or has a hexagonal looking eyelet, and if the hand pushes onto the shaft then your movement is a press fit movement
- If the hole has two straight sides and a rounded top and bottom, then your movement is a euro shaft movement
- If your minute hand is over 160mm in length then we strongly recommend that you use a high torque movement
Please note, your minute hand hole should be visible. If there is anything protruding from your original minute hand then you may have removed the minute shaft with the hand by accident. To separate this shaft from the minute hand you will need to unscrew the hand nut on the front of the hand.
2. Hand Hole Dimensions (Shaft Diameter Of Hands)
As the shaft diameter for all hands varies significantly, your original hands may not be compatible with the replacement movement that you select. It is important that you measure the hand hole dimensions to confirm whether it is a match. If not, you can order replacement hands that will be compatible with your replacement movement. In addition, the total length of the hands are measured from the centre of the hole to the tip, not from end to end.
3. Total Shaft Length Of Your Current Movement
Measure the total shaft length of your old movement by measuring from the face of the movement to the very end of the shaft. This measurement is the entire shaft length when the movement has been removed from the clock. It is important to get accurate measurements especially if your clock has a lens. We also recommend measuring your dial thickness to ensure the replacement movement will be a suitable fit.
4. Follow Our Guide
