Currently watches with the Elgin name are manufactured by M. Z. Berger & Co. I found the company web site and found information regarding how to obtain instructions for an Elgin brand watch the company manufactured.
try a brand new needle. Could also be threaded incorrectly--make sure the needle faces the correct direction. Possibly the machine is out of time (needle reaching the hook at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread). Search for: sewing machine timing
I am unsure wha you mean by "fix the pendulum". If you mean it stopped swinging, there are two reasons: first check the battery and contacts. Remember, even a new battery can be bad, which is why new things come with warranties. The other thing is quartz movements usually don't last too long. If the pendulum is not swinging, and is correctly attached to the movement and the battery is good, then the movement has gone bad and you need a new one. Most all clock shops keep quartz movements on hand. If you are a do-it-yourself type, you can get them off the Internet. Be sure to remove the old one first and check how thick the dial is, that's how they sell them by dial thickness.
I thought I had some instructions on that Elgin clock, but it was for a mechanical wind up unit. There were many different models of these programmable clocks manufactured and the instructions differed. And they are just not readily available. I received a sports watch in a trade (with no instructions)and after 3 months I am still trying to determine how to program it!
It might be that the "H" stands for hours and the "S" for set. So how do we set the minutes? I will pose this question to my Internet Clocksmiths Group and see if anyone knows. If I do receive some instructions, I will get back with you.
That's the battery number for the watch also known as the #377. It's the most common watch battery in the world. Your model number is located at the bottom of the dial (face) below the six-o'clock position. You will need a 10 power jeweler's loupe or magnifying glass to see it and read it. Jot down the number and contact Elgin directly (MZ Berger Co,) for the extra links.
mcdevito75 here, Elgin, a fine, fine watch, If the name on the dial says Lady Elgin it could be worth more, but the fact it"s an Elgin counts alot also. Older Elgins are also worth more as they are collectables, Let"s say your Elgin is 20 years old and in fine . fine shape, no scratches, tarnishing and is keeping great time it"s worth could be $100.00 -- $150.00 Of course this depends on many factors as mentioned. If your Elgin is say only 5--10 years ols it"s value in my opinion is approx.$75.00 -- $100.00 Bset Bet, visit a few jewelers in your area, many will give a free apraisel on the value of your Elgin.
