    How to remove clock hands?

    Hi *, It might be a basic question, but for me the hands are a nightmare, both removing and putting them back again. So my question what are the ways to remove the hands of the clock without damaging/bending the dial and the hands. What tool shall I buy? I have seen Mark to use those levers with a plastic bag but in case of the clock you can see on the video it would not work because the minute hand is just too far from the dial. Or a bigger levers would do the job? So much to learn. I hope you ppl don't mind to ask me this. Best regards, Lui VID_20190314_220557.mp4

    main spring got loose

    This accident happened when I tried to test the clock at the end of the cleaning and re-assembly process. I try to always let the spring down before I start with a clock. (I only touched a few watches so far because I am a beginner.) It was really painful because I was so proud that I fixed the broken mainspring (heated it up and created a hook and a lose end) then at the end of the process I ruined it. This is not a valuable clock but I just cannot stand this.

    travel clock identification

    Unfortunately the UV light trick did not help. I am going to put the clock together (once i can replace a broken screw) and will post a picture here.

    main spring got loose

    Hi *, Now I understand how can the mainspring damage the movement. First hand experience because I made a mistake at the end of the cleaning and oiling process. 3 o'clock in the morning. I felt the teethes bouncing of my chest. Needless to say I was and I am still very sad. Best regards, Lui

    Hi *, Could anyone ID my travel clock? Its a swiss made 8 days travel clock but I cannot read whats written above the "8 days" text. Not even with magnifier. Best regards, Lui

    broken mainspring

    Another mistake.. bent the spring the wrong side... i had to cut it off and bend it again however it seems that I fixed the mainspring and the clock started to work. Yes it is shorter now by 10-15 mm but it works. I am really happy. VID_20190221_231500.mp4

    broken mainspring

    I see i still need to file some edges and probably not the best mainspring repair ever, but as my first ever try I am more or less satisfied. Hopefully it is going to work in the clock.

    clock stops if i put it back to the case

    It's sorted now. The glass was not in place entirely as I noticed it after having a close look. If you compare the picture i post now to the previous one you can see that the edge of the glass sticks out this time, the glass is the highest point. Now the glass was not in place as the glass surrounding frame did not let it somehow after turning the frame 90 degree a couple of times and nudging the glass and the frame they settled. I guess this is the beginners mistake I did not regret to post this though as I like the comments and the willingness to help on this forum.

    clock stops if i put it back to the case

    Yes, yes in order to remove the top screw I had to release that level what you use to stop the alarm and the stop button too. Actually the top screw goes trough the outer case and the inside frame. The inside frame was also bent, so it was actually enough to put the top screw in and tighten it to stop the clock. I straightened up the bent and now the top screw is not an issue anymore. Hopefully I can sort this out, thanks for both of your comments.
  15. Hi *, I am a new with clock repairing, however I have successfully stripped down a few cleaned them and oiled them. This is what happened to this one too, however it stops when I put it back to the case and tighten the screws, if i take it out it runs well and keeps the time. It took me a while to realize it wasting hours to investigate the parts etc etc believing that I did something wrong. It still can be the case. Now i think that there is a tension here which slows down the clock and stops it but I don't know what can I do to resolve it. Did I put it together incorrectly? Best regards, Lui
