Do you need to know how to measure a dial with a glass bezel? This week’s helpful hint will explain how to measure properly.
Take a quick look at the diagram below. The measurements show the diameter of the dial, including the bezel, from (A) to (B). When measuring for an opening, remember that there is about 1/4″ between the nail holes in the dial and the outer edge of the bezel ring.
Once you have the measurements for the clock case opening (C), it is time to order! We recommend that you order a dial about 1/2″ larger than the clock case opening. This will keep the dial from sliding into the hole and also allow sufficient material to attach the dial to your clock case.
