SOURCE: I just received a Welby

These clock do need oiling every couple of years and should be cleaned at least every 10 years.

One of the winding holes is for the time, one is for the strike and the 3rd is for the chime. These do vary in location from clock to clock so I can't advise any further. It sounds like this clock has 2 differenct chimes depicted by the SIE & EIV7.

I think your best option is to take it to a clock shop and get it cleaned. They should then be able to give you more information on the chimes and its operation.

I just purchased a Heritage Mint Ltd Timepiece Quartz Regulator wall clock but it chimes two hours slower than the actual time. Need to know how to correct it. There is a red push button on the back of...

I have the same clock. Here's what I did to re-set it after changing batteries: After replacing batteries, use the turn dial to set the correct time. Press the RED button 6 times, wait for it to go through that series of chimes, then press the button again to set the time.
Example: Press RED button 6 times. Wait for it to chime. Press RED button the correct number of times for the hour to be set. For 5:00, press the button 5 times, etc.
I lost the directions to my clock, and I am posting this from memory and also just had to re-set mine and it works OK now.
Hope this helps!

Does anybody know which way i'm supposed to wind my cartier santos watch? Options: clock-wise, counter clock-wise, or multidirectional?? thanks

mcdevito75 here, Generally your Cartier watch is wound in a clockwise direction simply, due to how it:s made, in this direction the mainspring is tightened or wound and turning the crown in a counter-clockwise position only free wheels the winding mechanism. I would advise you wind your watch in a multi direction, however not to the very, very end of It"s winding capacity, once you feel the crown getting tension only 4--5 more multi-direction turns should be enough to maintain a good wind to your Cartier watch.

I have just bought a Enfield Bakelite Mantle clock. Exceelnt timekeeper however after abot 22 hours it stopped. Again today after about 8 hours. Is there another problem apart from needing wound up? I...

How old is your clock?

If it is fairly old then it could just need a clean (by a professional!).

Over winding is a strange term which I have never quite understood in all my career as an engineer. I have known a brand new watch to fail when bought fully wound and I think that it may have been wound too hard and the mechanism jammed. I don't think that this is the problem in your case.

Pocket watch seems overwound

If you wound the watch and it ran you would not say you over-wound it.

The only way it is over-wound is if you wound it so Hard you broke the spring or broke off the stem.

The fact is your watch has Stopped running.

Seek professional help.

Hope this tip helps.

The clock time cannot be set on a ''A'' Regulator pendulum clock, the hands move of their own accord when the key is wound anticlockwise. The pendulum does not swing either

You question is a bit non descriptive except that the clock does not work and the hand clutch has failed.


Hopefully this will guide you in the correct direction for a local repair person.

Hope this tip helps

Believe chime springs have been over wound

The idea of "overwinding" is probably the most common myth in clockmaking. A clock cannot be wound too tight, unless it is wound so hard that the mainspring breaks, in which case the spring becomes completely unwound and will not wind up again. What has actually happened is that the clock is fully wound, but does not unwind because it is not running for some other reason. Letting down the mainspring would have no benefit.
You're correct that the clock was made in 1974. This is far beyond the expected lifespan of the clock. It is possible that lubrication by a qualified clock repairer could get the clock running again, but considering its age, it may be more likely that the movement is worn out, dirty or corroded and needs replacement.
The three keys should be wound all the way, as far as they will go, once a week. This clock should be self-starting when wound, so the fact that it has been sitting wound without running for years indicates a previous problem that prevented the clock from starting and running the mainspring down on its own.
