Metal pendulum wall clock run by AA batteries... does not run... new batteries do not solve the problem.


Hi! the movement must be bad, you can actually have a battery clock movement replaced easily at a watch or clock shop! We charge about $30.00 to 50.00 if the movement is available, you did not mention what type of clock? if you can let me know i may be able to help further. thank you!

I have an antique clock that requires two places to wind it up. Since Daylight Savings Time went into effect, the clock has gone crazy, chiming the hour on the half hour and chiming three hours ahead. What...


With only limited information provided about your type of actual antique clock this symptom has to conclude that your clock is a non self correcting style.

Step one: Ensure clock is striking the hour. during the time of the hour strike quickly move the minute hand to the hour.

Step two: Move to the half hour allow to strike, move hand to hour allow to strike then move the hour hand to align with the correct count.

Step three: Stop the clock until the correct time has been achieved and start clock OR strike ever hour and half hour until clock is set to the correct time.

Hope this tip guides you to a solution for your clock.

Bakelite antique mantle clock just bought, but no instructions of how to get it going. Ive got the key and pendulum but dont know how to set it up. Can you help?


First you have to wind up your clock using the key supplied. The pendulum suspension spring should start to swing quite fast. Stop it swinging with your fingers and hook up the pendulum. When done, push the pendulum to whatever side and release it to start the swing - the clock should start ticking in normal order. If there is no special bar on the back of clock movement for adjusting hands, then hands must be adjusted from the dial side by moving minute hand clockwise. Move the minute hand with your finger clockwise to the desired time, at the same time do not catch hour hand, as this may end up with the incorrect time displayed. Rate me, plz.

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 .

Antique Hamilton pocket watch how to open? I unscrewed the face and see a notch at the bottom and a hinge on top of face. I tried prying upward at notch but it did not want to open. I was applying enough...


Pull the wind knob out...it takes a firm pull on mine. You will hear it click, then you have room to pull the movement out towards the hinge. Then close when done, and push the wind handle back in.

At one oclock the lever is pulled out about 1/4" then you can set the time, when finished, push the lever back in.

Hope this helps...george

I purchased an old Hamilton mantel clock that did not run. I have cleaned and oiled it and now it works well except it losses five minutes per day. This has a German movement, spring escapement type,...


This clock has a floating balance escapement.

Hold the balance snuggly with 2 figures. Take a small screw driver and push one of the 4 legs above and attached to the disk to the "+" direction. Move it about 1/4 turn. Set the correct time and check again the next day. If the clock is still slow, move it again and set the hands. Do this until the clock is accurate.

Disclaimer: If this movement was made in the 1970 or early 1980's (The date is a 2 digit # above the movement model number). Those years the clock manufac. (Hermle) did not do well in quality materials. The may need an overhaul or movement replacement. I can provide more information if needed.
