Reset time on pocketwatch
Ok this can be done by GENTLY pulling out the crown till you hear or feel 2 clicks. Sometimes the crown has to unwound first, as you have not mentioned a specific model I am trying to be through.
Then you canjust rotate the crown and the hands should move and you can get it to the desired time.
When you have finished simply rescrew the crown back down.
Hope this helps?

Pocketwatch runs fast
Such a fast gaining usually is caused by dirty or magnetized hairspring, resulting in uneven coil amplitude (some of the coil rows are sticking together or touching each other). This causes the watch to run unbelievably fast.
To get the watch properly fixed you need to give to the watchmaker.
Alternetively; you can fix it yourself, but it will not last long.
For this you will need:
Dust blower (resin ball with nozzle),
Lighter fluid (ZIPPO),
Dropper (like one in eyedrops package).
Do as follows:
Open watch caseback,
Check for the fastest moving part in watch movement and you will see the hairspring fitted on it (pulsing outwards and inwards very fast).
Fill the VERY CLEAN dropper with lighter fluid.
Put ONE drop of lighter fluid on hairspring (DO NOT TOUCH IT),
Wait for a 10 seconds,
Dry out the lighter fluid with dust blower by vigorously squeezing it and pointing the nozzle on to hairspring from approx. 2-3 inches away.
Lay the watch on the table (dial down) and cover it with a clean, dustless cup. Leave for 15 minutes.
Fit the caseback on and enjoy your watch again.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Need instructions for an Elgin FG7080 semi
DO NOT "POP" THE BACK OFF! You need a tool to unscrew the back. You may be able to find methods on YouTube to find out how to unscrew watch backs without proper tools. I'm not a watch repair professional but I do know that if you strip the threads you're gonna cause yourself more problems than solutions.
