SOURCE: I purchased an old Hamilton mantel clock that did

This clock has a floating balance escapement.

Hold the balance snuggly with 2 figures. Take a small screw driver and push one of the 4 legs above and attached to the disk to the "+" direction. Move it about 1/4 turn. Set the correct time and check again the next day. If the clock is still slow, move it again and set the hands. Do this until the clock is accurate.

Disclaimer: If this movement was made in the 1970 or early 1980's (The date is a 2 digit # above the movement model number). Those years the clock manufac. (Hermle) did not do well in quality materials. The may need an overhaul or movement replacement. I can provide more information if needed.

Correct technique definitely is CLOCKWISE ONLY. You are unbelievably lucky person if did not damage striking mechanism within 25 years while adjusting hands anti clockwise. If I'd have such a luck, I'd try to play lottery. :))

Is it spring wound or weighted with pine cones? I have a feeling the movers wound it up for you and over wound it. you can release the tension on the spring by carefully letting the key unwind while you hang on to the catch, I just got a clock from somebody, it was way over wound, took about 10 full turns out of it and got it running, it has been going for about a week without touching the spring. I haven't got the chimes back yet.,,, Now if it is a weighted mechanism, the chain may have jumped the track. Check that out. Other than that, I can't see why it shouldn't work. Hope this helps.

  • Place your Seth Thomas atomic clock face-down on a table or desk and locate a series of buttons labeled "PST," "MST," "CST" and "EST" on the back of the clock. Press the appropriate button to set the time zone.

  • 2

    Turn your attention to the small lithium battery-powered digital clock display on the back of your clock. With the correct time zone set, the digital display should accurately reflect the current local time.

  • 3

    Locate the AA battery compartment on the back of your clock. Put two new AA batteries into your clock's battery compartment.

  • 4

    Set the "Mode" switch on the back of your Seth Thomas atomic clock to "Run." Wait for it to adjust to the correct time. The automatic time-adjustment process can take up to 45 minutes, but is usually completed much sooner.

    Have old Seth Thomas Metronome ,only key turn about 1/4 turn.Is that normal for vintage one.


    It is not normal. Metronome should wind almost the same as a clock. The cause for this 1/4 turn of a winder is that the driving spring do not unwind completely. That means there are mechanical or oiling issues. Show your metronome to any clock repairer (not the watch repairer) and he/she should be able to fix that.

    You can not unwind the clock yourself, because this requires proper clock makers tools and skills as well. Clock is stopping because it has not been serviced for a long time and the oil in clock has collected dust particles and getting sticky. This does not let the spring unwind freely and is a problem for all cogs and moving parts. Find your nearest clock repair shgop and ask for cleaning, oiling and adjusting. BE AWARE: If you are gonna try to unwind it yourself, you will damage the clock's movement, but most important - you can even brake or loose your fingers, as the clock spring is under unbelievable tension and once released, it uncoils lightning fast and is sharp as a razor.

    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.
