1. Getting to the dial There are many case designs and styles and there is no telling what way your clock case is made to get to the dial (face) of the clock. Sometimes it is very easy to get to the dial and hands, other times the dial is covered with glass and may require you to figure out how the clock case was put together, so you can take it apart enough to get to the dial. You may have to remove some screws, or if there is a bezel it maybe required to bend the bezel tabs some to get it off. Once your at the point where you can remove the hands and also the back of the quartz unit, your good to start replacing the unit.
2. Removing the hands If there is a second hand on the clock, it only needs to be grabbed with the thumb nails and pulled straight off of the clock to take it off. There are two styles to the minute hand, the kind that has the nut holding it down and the kind that is only on by friction fit with a round hole in the hand. The friction fit with no nut style just pulls straight off like the second hand did. The other style (the kind we sell) has the nut on the top of the minute hand to hold it down. To take this off, hold the minute hand still as you turn the nut to the left with needle nose pliers to loosen the nut so you can take it off with your fingers. Next is the hour hand, this is only a friction fit with a round hole in the hand, the tube its on is tapered fatter as it goes down into the movement. Just twist the hand and pull it toward you until it comes off.
3. Removing the hex nut Then you will see a hex nut (six sided nut). use the same needle nose pliers to just turn the hex nut some to the left so it can be unscrewed with the fingers. With the hex nut removed the quartz clock movement will just fall out of the back side of the dial (face).
These are the assembly instructions for the time only quartz clock movement into the clock case. Read More »
