Question about Watches

Open Question

I am looking for the operating manual for a Meister Anker 988 Quartz wall clock. If no manual is available then just a description as to how to use the various knob/switches on the side of the clock movement would be of great help. Thanks.

SOURCE: can't get my croton watch to work.

There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:

  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

SOURCE: i have a quartz

These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.

  • Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
  • Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
  • Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
  • Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
  • Close the front access door if required.

    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.

    I do not know. I also am not familiar with the process of "sauter". If you want to solder them then check the manual or look at one like it.

    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?

    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 .
