How to adjust the antique clock</a>

Antique pocket or wristwatch can be easily adjusted, because their mechanism consists of a spring and a pendulum.

You will need

  • - any other watches
  • - flat screwdriver
  • - a figured screwdriver
  • - Loupe
  • - toothpick

Instructions

1

Pull the head of the winding toward you, and then start rotating it clockwise. When the hands show the current time, press the crown, and then rotate until it stops.

2

Synchronize time on the antique clock and on any others. Put them face down and leave for a day.

3

After a day, check the time on both hours and write down how busy or lag the custom clock is.

4

Check how well the back opensWatch cover. If it is screwed, it can easily be opened by turning it counter-clockwise. If there is a latch or you could not find the protrusion - then it is necessary to pry off the lid with a flat screwdriver.

5

Use the magnifying glass to locate the clock control. It looks like a tiny arrow, fixed over the spring.

6

By default the controller is in the center of the clock mechanism, and on the sides there are the signs "-" or "S" (ie slower) and "+" or "F" (ie faster).

7

Using the toothpick, carefully move the arrow-pointer toward the "+" or "-".

8

Again, measure the current accuracy of the ancient clock. Sometimes, to achieve the final result, you need to twist the regulator a few times.
