How to set moon phases on a quartz clock

How do I set moon phases on a Feinuhrmacher Maier & Söhne - Helvetia 1898 -?

The watch has a Quartz clockwork date of the month (1-31) and status of the moon(moon phase).

The crown has two positions. Position one sets the date and position two (pull all the way out) the time. But I do not know how to set the moon!

SOURCE: re-set quartz chronograph sweeping second hand

Easy Soultion worked for me. Believe Me I was worried only had the Seiko Sportura for a week now. My second dial for the stopwatch was re-setting to 5 seconds instead of zero. The Solution is
1. pull the Crown all the way out ( In the position you take the crown to set the time , second click ).
2. To set the minute face of stop watch , keep pressing the top button untill it is zero. To set the second needle to zero keep pressing the bottom button untill it reaches zero or where you like it to re-set each time. Depend on you.
3. Once all neddles of stopwatch are at resting postions ( usually zero) secure the crown back to its normal postion. Test your stop watch , hopefully it will go back to zero when you press the reset button. C

Glad to help. ashfaque.r@googlemail.com

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.

SOURCE: in reading the movado 800

The time should only stop when the crown is pulled all the way out in the third positiion... In the second position the 2nd hang should continue to tick and you should only be able to move the hour hand on the watch

Nowhere in the little operations manual that came with my watch does it give the accuracy of the timepiece. Where can I get that information? I have a movado ESQ bracer chronograph.


Interesting question. I know little about watches but, as you would know, your watch does have a quartz movement, so, from Wikipedia, 'Quartz clock':

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.

If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.



Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?

mcdevito75 here, Once the battery leaks it destroys the quartz mechanism. Even if you find a replacement quartz, you"d need special Jewelers tools to remove and replace the quartz, even with that you could destroy the new quartz if you can find one. Best Bet, see a small watch repair shop in your area for a quartz replacement approx. $75.00

What is the main internal assembly of the Casio forester watch called? Replacing the battery does not work.


mcdevito75 here, The Internal workings of all watches and clocks, Quartz and mechanical is called the movement. You may have a weak or even dead battery, even if the battery is new. If you"ve dropped your watch, got it water logged, you could have hurt the Quartz movement. It'll take special equiptment to check the Quartz movement to see if it"s burned out. I would try another battery or at least double check this batteries instalation in your watch. For more info, here is Casio"s contact number, 800-435-7732 9AM--5PM EST.

mcdevito75 here, Even a so-called new battery doesn"t really mean it"s NEW!! NEW!! in other words your NEW! battery could have been laying in a store for months before you bought it. Thes ebatteries have a shelf life of a few months, about 1 year with use in a clock / watch.---- Try another battery, also the quartz mechanism could be starting to wear., also double check the battery is installed correctly.

Does anyone know where to get a replacement 'movement' for the Michael Graves's Alessi mantle clock.


Yep - I know a clock repairman in California who still has some of the original Hechinger Quartz Movements for the Alessi pendulum clock . Definately worth repairing .
