Normally, a manual wind watch should be wound once every day.

Not sure if first attempt went through so i will try again. We were moving a sligh grandfather clock and the brass weights fell and the weights inside came out which weights go in which brass?


with most old clocks the weights were a means of moving the gears in the clock instead of using a spring
If I am right , to wind up the clock you pulled one lot of weights down and the weights then slowly changed positions from one up to one down
normally the lh weight is the wind up weight and is slightly lighter the than the rh weight
your problem will be determining the correct weight for the rh side as too heavy and the clock will gain time and too light will loose time

Need replacement clock hand


Your best bet is to see if the original manufacture of the clock is still in business. If so, they may still have the necessary information for one of their clock makers to make a new hand for you.
The only other solution is to locate a watch maker who specializes in restoration of old clocks and watches. There are many around who are very good. A new replacement hand can be made for you.
In any case, obtaining a hand will not be cheap. There will be a number of hours of work involved to make a new hand. The watch maker will most likely need the clock movement set to him so he can do the exact measurements required.
As for original parts off the shelf for old clocks, these are not easy to find. Many of these clocks were built on a one-by-one individual basis.

Does anybody know which way i'm supposed to wind my cartier santos watch? Options: clock-wise, counter clock-wise, or multidirectional?? thanks


mcdevito75 here, Generally your Cartier watch is wound in a clockwise direction simply, due to how it:s made, in this direction the mainspring is tightened or wound and turning the crown in a counter-clockwise position only free wheels the winding mechanism. I would advise you wind your watch in a multi direction, however not to the very, very end of It"s winding capacity, once you feel the crown getting tension only 4--5 more multi-direction turns should be enough to maintain a good wind to your Cartier watch.

Why is there two places to wind a Seth Thomas Corsair E537-000 clock? Any description on the proper tension for winding?


Two winding arbours are in clocks with chiming, because there are two separategears in one clock and each one is driven by separate mainspring. Description for winding is: Wind each spring as long as you do not feel significant resistance. As soon as you feel the winding goes too hard - stop winding.
Rate me, please.

How do i wind an old seth thomas pocket watch? mfg. 1894, montgomery ward model


mcdevito75 here, I believe you"ll need a special winding key to wind your Seth Thomas Clock, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they may be able to order a key for you, have all info regarding the clock with you. Winding keys may also be on ebay under Vintage Clocks/watches.

Don't know how to properly wind Elgin 400 day anniversary clock


Wind the clock until there is a sudden increase in resistance (it is then fully wound). So not apply a great force, as older clocks may be weaker and overloading the spring may break the termination and result in a new spring being required.

If you think it is becoming too stiff, just stop winding and see how long it runs for. I have often heard the term "over winding at clock" but have never quite understood the term. As a retired engineer I think that springs that break because of overenthusiastic winding are probably near the end of their life anyway.

How often do you need to wind up a watch, and do you just turn it in one direction/


Its advisable to wind up the watch at least once 15 days to make sure none of the spares inside doesn't get jammed.

Usually, its just one direction, clock-wise! :-)
