SOURCE: i have a quartz

These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.

  • Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
  • Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
  • Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
  • Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
  • Close the front access door if required.

    SOURCE: Elgin Westminster Quartz Chime clock won't work

    IF I GATHER CORRECTLY , YOUR CLOCK HAS TWO BATTERIES, ONE AT BASE AND ANOTHER ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT. THE ONE ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CLOCK'S FUNCTIONALITY AND I THINK THE BATTERY AT BASE IS FOR THE ROTATING BALLS ( PENDULUM ). SO OPEN UP THE BACK IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, AND REPLACE THE BATTERY. CAREFULLY THOUH AS THERE RE TWO SCREWS ON TOP AND A SNAP AT CENTER BOTTOM WHICH YOU COULD EASILY BREAK IF YOU DO NOT DO IT WITH CARE. OPEN UP THE SCREWS FIRST AND GENTLY USING A SCREW DRIVER PUSH BACK ON THE SNAP HOLE TO FORCE IT UPWARDS AND INWARDS. IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE THEN WE ARE LOOKING AT TWO DIFFERENT CLOCKS.

    HOPE THIS HELPS.

    SOURCE: Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime

    I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
    *Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
    *Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
    If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.

    Do new James Michael pocket watches come with a battery?


    Yes, if it is of the battery type

    Movement Type
    The movement, or inner workings, of a watch are what make up the main timekeeping mechanism. This mechanism measures the passage of time and displays the current time and other information including date, day and month. These movements can be entirely mechanical, entirely electronic or a combination of the two.
    Mechanical movements, such as hand wound or automatic watches require winding in order to run. An automatic watch uses the force of gravity to constantly wind itself. Automatic watches have a greater consistency of power and therefore can be more accurate.
    An electronic watch employs the use of a tiny quartz crystal that vibrates in the presence of electricity. This type of watch is powered by a battery and their time is regulated by the tiny quartz crystal. This is why most electronic watches are also called quartz watches. Solar powered watches convert energy from light into electricity which is then stored in a rechargeable battery. These watches do not need to have the battery replaced as long as they are regularly exposed to a fairly strong light source.
    Kinetic powered watches use a combination of mechanical and electronic elements. Usually a weight rotates with the motion of the wearer?s arm which turns a generator to supply power. It is similar to an automatic watch except that electrical power is generated by the mechanical motion.

    I own a Ajanta Quartz odc 170 wall clock but have misplaced the operating instructions. Can someone please help me with the setting instructions. Many thanks. Joshua


    There is a sliding button on the back side to the right of inner frame. The slider has "Normal -> Time -> AL SNZ -> CountDown->Timer" marked on it.
    You need to move that button to time basically to the right side and then user up and down buttons to adjust the time.
    Hope this helps.

    I have an Elgin Westminster chime quartz wall clock (with pendulum). It uses a C-cell battery. It will not work at all. Please help if you can, since it has sentimental value to me. Don't know if...


    I'm afraid you have to visit clock repair shop, as without close inspection it is not possible to say what's wrong with your clock.

    Should i pull the crown to save battery if i store my quartz watch for a few months


    I don't think storing a watch with the crown out accomplishes much. That I am aware of, pulling the crown out does not break the electrical connection between the battery and the watch. At least in looking at quartz movements, I don't see any electrical apparatus that insulates the crown in any way so that it could act as a switch. I think that in quartz watches that hack, pulling the crown out mechanically disengages or interferes with the drive train, but it doesn't stop the oscillator or stepper motor from running.
    With quartz movements, at least those I have seen the internals of, (most ETA and ISA designs, some Rondas, a few Seikos), pulling the crown to the setting position does one of two things:
    1) On better, jeweled movements - it breaks contact between the coil and battery, thus stopping the motor. The oscilator continues to be powered, but most of the current consumption is from the motor. These pulling the crown out does save battery life. Or,

    2) On cheaper non-jeweled movements - it blocks the rotation of the second hand gear, and stalls the motor. These are observable by a "twitchy" second hand when the stem is out. This method actually kills the battery faster, as a stalled electric motor draws more current.

    I just replaced the battery and now it won't let me set the watch, how do I do that?


    mcdevito75 here, If you replaced the battery yourself you may have moved the quatrz movement and mis-aligned the buttons the thier contact spot on the quartz movement. You"ll have to open the back nd check by pushing gently on each button 1 at a time to make sure each button is makeing contact at the right spot on the quartz movement, also even if the battery is new it can still be weak or dead as they have a shelf life, also you may need the exact battery number Casio recommends, a small watch repair shop in your area can advise. The 2 buttons you need to set your watch are MODE and SET. --------- Press and maybe hold in the MODE button, 2--3 seconds, MODE button usually on the right side of watch caseing, see the display flashing, now press set to set each function, (hour, minute etc.) press MODE after ecah function is set, (hour, minute etc.) once everything is set, press MODE again to see steady display.

    mcdevito75 here, The quatrz movement could need a little quartz oil or the quartz movement could be going bad, but foirst check make sure you have the correct battery and that it didn:"t work loose Return to whoever changed the battery to have it checked.
