Well Melissa, you have about a hundred parts or more in the watch. If anyone of them is dirty, broken or whatever your watch will not run. You need to go talk with a watchmaker (not a jeweler) about your watch. If your watch hasn't been "overhauled" in the last ten years then that is most likely what is indicated. Watch oils and greases evaporate or turn to a scummy mess which may be the problem. Or you may have a broken balance staff. Or you may have rust and dirt built up to the point the watch can't overcome it.
Westclox clocks--and, at one time, watches--were once made in the United States. However, especially since the purchase of the Westclox brand and assets by a holding company in 2007, and the general disorganization that followed that acquisition, it's likely that all production has been moved offshore.
From about 1919 through the early 1980s, Westclox products were also made in Canada at their factory in Peterborough. Westclox also had a large factory in Scotland that manufactured over 50 million clocks between 1948 and 1988.
mcdevito75 here, The stem on your westclox has 2 positions, First pull the stem out to set the time of day, keep cycleing the watch until you come to 1 day before the day you want. NOW! push the stem back in. NOW! slip a finger nail just under the crown and gently, gently kift the crown to it"s first position, it may take a little practice so be patient, once in it's first position you can change the DATE easily, change the DATE to 1 DATE before the DA you want, push the syem back in and pull the stem back out and set the day/date and time of day. Your watch is set and will change on time a little past mid nite.
Sounds like it is just worn out.
Sometimes you can replace the generic clock works in these type of clocks. Go online and do a search for battery powered clock works, and see if you can match yours. They are removed quite easily after popping off the clock hands, and removing a nut under the hands that holds the clock works in the chicken.
Here's a link to a site that sells the clock movements...
Usually these clocks are assembled using clip-on type of assembly. Sometimes metal staples, pins or clips are used. You have to unbend or extract these(depending on what type of clips are used). If clock parts are made oft brittle plastic, it may crack,so, you should be carefull.
If the clock hands came off, try to find out if you can get the glass off without dismantling whole clock.
Hands mostly are friction fitted (push-on).
To align hands correctly, pull them off hub and then push them on pointing exactly at 12 o'clock.
Love my watch, Was placing it on wrist, time correct, pressed button to test pulse and everything went blank. Pressed reset button, with no effect. It has a high pitched whine when placed at ear.
Does this mean I need a new battery, and where is that done, so I don't mess it up.
Appreciate any help as I don't have the instruction book either,
