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.

I have a Sunbeam Westminster Quartz mantle clock I bought approx 17 yrs ago and after replacing the battery and setting the time again the clock stops after an hour or two. Any ideas of what the problem...


mcdevito75 here, Even a so-called new battery doesn"t really mean it"s NEW!! NEW!! in other words your NEW! battery could have been laying in a store for months before you bought it. Thes ebatteries have a shelf life of a few months, about 1 year with use in a clock / watch.---- Try another battery, also the quartz mechanism could be starting to wear., also double check the battery is installed correctly.

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.

How do i turn back the hands one hour


The analog clock hands on the Casio 2747 will only turn in a clockwise direction, but there is a way to speed them up when you have to move them far around the watch face.

1. In Timekeeping mode (i.e. Date is shown in the digital display), push button "C" (bottom-left) 6 times to enter Hand-Setting mode.
2. Hold down button "A" (top-left) until the digital time starts to flash.
3. Press button "D" (bottom-right) to advance the analog time by 20 seconds, and hold down button "D" for High-Speed.
4. Alternately, for High-Speed, press button "D" (bottom-right) and button "B" (top-right) together at the same time, and then let go. The hands will continue to move automatically. Press any button to stop them BEFORE they arrive at the desired time, then press button "D" several times to arrive at the time of your choosing.
5. Press button "A" (top-left) to exit.
6. Press button "C" (bottom-left) if you want to return to Timekeeping mode.
