A Guide On How To Use Your Antique Pocket Watch


 

When you receive your antique pocket watch you should wind it up and let it run for a day or two before using it. If the weather is cold or the watch has been transported by air you should let the watch reach room temperature before winding it.

If necessary shake it gently to get it started - a delicate swing back and forth to get the balance wheel started is enough. The movement of the second hand offers the best indication that a watch is running. 

 

Winding Your Watch



Crown wind watches are wound by turning the crown clockwise.

Over-winding a watch may cause the winding gear to break. Turn the crown applying enough pressure (from a finger and thumb) and stop when the force required suddenly increases. A keyless watch will generally require around 20 "shuffle winds" or 8 or 9 complete turns clockwise from above.

 

Setting The Time



Crown Wind & Crown Set

Pull the crown out (upwards) – it will click, turn the crown clockwise to set the time and then push the crown back in (downwards) to the winding position, if left out the watch will run slowly because of the extra drag of the setting mechanism.


Crown Wind & Pin Set

Press the pin located to the side of the winding crown (using your finger nail) and at the same time turn the crown clockwise.

Setting the time can stop the watch, so check it’s still running after setting the time. Most antique watches can be turned in either direction without causing damage, but it is advisable to turn clockwise.
