  1. It isn't clear what hand you are talking about, but it doesn't matter
  2. Set the hand that is working to 12:00
  3. Place the loose hand at 12:00 and gently press it on. It is usually a friction type fit
  4. The hands should line up at 12, that is the goal
  5. good luck, Michael

Need replacement clock hand


Your best bet is to see if the original manufacture of the clock is still in business. If so, they may still have the necessary information for one of their clock makers to make a new hand for you.
The only other solution is to locate a watch maker who specializes in restoration of old clocks and watches. There are many around who are very good. A new replacement hand can be made for you.
In any case, obtaining a hand will not be cheap. There will be a number of hours of work involved to make a new hand. The watch maker will most likely need the clock movement set to him so he can do the exact measurements required.
As for original parts off the shelf for old clocks, these are not easy to find. Many of these clocks were built on a one-by-one individual basis.

I have a Westclox battery operated wall clock with chicken on face. The battery is new. The second hand tries to move but just "clicks" How can I fix this?


Sounds like it is just worn out.
Sometimes you can replace the generic clock works in these type of clocks. Go online and do a search for battery powered clock works, and see if you can match yours. They are removed quite easily after popping off the clock hands, and removing a nut under the hands that holds the clock works in the chicken.
Here's a link to a site that sells the clock movements... http://www.clockworks.com/

Invicta model 3209 watch


Your watch is fitted with chronograph movement 5040D made by Ronda (Switzerland). If you take a closer look, then you will realise that the subdial at 3 o'clock is counting seconds allready. This is your seconds dial, not the big one.
The big seconds hand actually is the chronograph hand (stopwatch) and, when activated, works together with 1/10th counter.
Follow this link and see for yourself:

http://www.ronda.ch/e/index_bedienung.html

Find movement 5040D and click on INTERACTIVE version.

Rate me, please.

Wall clock not working


If you are sure the hands are not touching as they pass, perhaps the minute hand and hour hand are binding together at the hub. Try this: Gently pull on the minute hand by gripping its hub with the nails of your finger and thumb. It should slide forward a little (or come off). Also the same for the hour hand, to ensure it is not binding on the face of the dial.
I don't know the particular clock, but if it has a SECONDS hand, this is often the one that needs to be freed.
If all the hands are free, all should be good. If it has a seconds hand and the clock stops when this hand is going "uphill", try a fresh battery. If this doesn't fix it, remove the seconds hand and use the clock without it. Or you could try to counterbalance the hand by adding a little weight to the opposite side... this could work, but as it increases the mass of the hand also, it still might be a problem.
Another way might be to shorten the seconds hand..!
