The minute hand is loose and just rotates with the direction u move it.how do I fix it


Well, it is time for your lesson in "watch repair, 101."
Most all watches and clocks have the hands press on the various stems that stick out from the face.
There are usually 3.
The smallest diameter is also the longest, and is for the second hand. Next largest is between the middle shaft and the outer shaft, and is for the minutes.
The largest diameter shaft, usually the shortest, is the hour hand. Usually each hand presses on the correct shaft.
You'll likely need a magnifying class and a gentle touch.
God bless your efforts.

REGULATION TIPS FOR THE 400-day and 1000-day clocks


CLOCK REGULATION TIPS FOR THE ROTATING REGULATOR
These Regulations tips are useful for regulating the rotating regulator. This is to include most 400-day and 1000-day clocks.
The following information is copied from SCHATZ (tm) OWNER'S HANDBOOK.
Time Regulation Tip:
On the top of the pendulum is a disk on which numbers are engraved 1 - 16 and two arrows marked F - S. The small indicator hand will be pointing to a number on the disk at which the clock was regulated before leaving the factory. Should you find it necessary to regulate the clock, observe the number to which the indicator hand points. The distance between each number is equivalent to 1/2 minute in 24 hours + or -.
FRROM MY PERSONAL SHOP NOTES:
If your clock loses two minutes per day [24 hours] and the indicator hand points to number 8 on the disk - move the disk in the direction of the arrow marked F until the indicator hand will point to number 1.
NOTE:
Before attempting adjustments to the regulator disk, first lock the pendulums by using the lever located on the front of the base. By so doing, you will avoid damage to the delicate suspension wire while turning the regulating disk.
Keep A Regulation Record:
Keeping a short Record of regulation and maintenance on your clock will make it much easier for you to keep it well with in its optimum time-keeping ability. We have found that using the guideline below helps.
Date: +/- in min: How much adjust in Degrees +/-: Personal Notes:
We recommend logging only the times the clock was wound, and any time the clock is regulated or reset.
Times of regulation will include any time the clock has exceeded a 3 to 5 minute error.
Use only ONE form of time references for this, a QUARTZ clock that is known for keeping good time is recommended.
Over time you may find the clock needs only slight regulation; for example, if it has run for approximately 3 weeks and the error rate is under 3 minutes adjust regulator only slightly or simply RE-set.
TEMPERATURE and SEASONAL CHANGES
Temperature fluctuation can affect the time-keeping abilities of your clock.
Never allow direct sun light to come in contact with your clock. This will over heat the clock and it will not only affect the time-keeping qualities, but also dry out the oil and cause premature servicing requirements.
SPECIAL NOTES: REGULATION TENDENCIES
It is very difficult to look at the hands of an analog clock and still determine if the clock is running correctly, therefore I recommend allowing the time error rate on the clock to remain UN-touched until the error rate has exceeded + or - 3 to 5 minutes. This is because 1 minute is very difficult to observe and calculate effectively.
One little known fact about the Rotating Regulator: After the clock is restarted it can take up to 3 or 4 hours for the pendulum to settle down into regular beat rate. Example: If the pendulum is under rotated the clock will run fast and will take some time to bring it up to speed. If over rotated it will run slow. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE: Look at the actual clock time and reset it as closely as possible to real time after the clock has run for about 3 to 4 hours but don't disturb the pendulum. ONLY RESET THE CLOCK IF the actual clock time is off by 1 or 3 minutes.
If you must reset the clock every 3 to 4 weeks, and it is FOR EXAMPLE always slow, Slightly RE-Regulate the clock to compensate for this rate of error. Simply reset the clock several times just to make sure that no mistakes are made.
How to Calculate the Adjustment:
Calculating how much to turn the regulating nut on the rotating pendulum by using the following calculations.

Hope this tip helps.

Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph's minute chronograph won't reset to 60 (the default it should be) when I reset it, and according to the manual. Is there a fix for this?


Similar to above answer - pull out crown (two stops) hold top button (firmly) you need to allow it rotate several times to move the minute hand (slow job) - and when the minute appears zero'd it seems to move slightly backwards when the crown is pushed back - it took several attempts to completely zero it - but it worked and is now perfectly in line (thank goodness)

TW Steel unable to reset minute chronograph hand (small upper left dial) I know how to reset second hand crown out push upper button etc but how do I rest minute recording hand


If the reset procedure still fails on time and date set crown positions together with chronograph buttons, and the minute counter doesn't move even when the stopwatch runs, the following can be tried:
The minute counter's motor may be stuck. Swipe a magnet hence and forth in different directions close to the back of the watch until the minute counter moves. The other hands may also move, but they can be reset later. Continue swiping several times to loosen the motor. A sheet should be placed behind the back of the watch to avoid scratches. Once the motor is loose enough, it can be further loosened by using its reset button which will spin it around when depressed.

I have a Breitling SuperOcean A17360. How does the rotating bezel work and how does one use it?


The bezel rotates (manuall) so that you can set the time you have to dive, next to the minute hand. Then as the minute hand rotates, you can see how long you have left before your oxygen runs out.

I've recently found an old Elgin pocketwatch (Hunter Case, 1904?)


If you wish to return this watch to a working condition you need to find a skilled watch repairer who is willing to take on a challenge.

It could prove to be very expensive is parts have to be made to replace anything that is worn out or broken.

Good luck!

Analog clock not in sync with digital clock


This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.
