Question about Watches

1 Answer

I have an out-of-commission German-made Anniversary clock. I would like to try to fix it myself. The thin long spring that is responsible for moving the pendulum at the bottom (Pendulum = 4 balls that rotate in one direction and then in the other) is broken and I am not sure where a new one would be placed or if I am missing a piece on which to fasten it. I could send you a picture of the clock, a copy of which I found on e-bay, should this be of help, or if there is a website that shows the general schematic for a wind-up 400 day anniversary clock, I could probably start from there. Thanks in advance for your time and your help!

I had the same problem; I inherited a clock by that description with my office. I'm not sure if it would help you, but I was able to at least figure out the mechanics of the clock from this site: http://www.clockworks.com/cintro1.html

They claim that you can order the spring there.

There is a very fine spring wire which makes the pendulum go, they often break when people touch or spin them. Replacements are available. Best to get it done professionally, suspension springs shouldn't cost too much

How to set the time on an Elgin Anniversary clock


If there is no special winder for clock hands at the back of clock movement, you have to adjust time by lifting the dome and moving hands by finger. Move MINUTE HAND ONLY clockwise until the desired time is set. In no circumstance touch hour hand.

You were not very specific about you clock description, Many of the German clocks were using auto correct features.

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 to change the hour


Anniversary clock hands can be adjusted directly moving the minute hand clockwise. Do not touch hour hand as this may cause hand disalignment. Carefully move minutes hand with your finger all the way around till you reach desired time.

Do not forget to rate, please.
