Set up & Care

Setting Up

All clocks are tested and set up before they are delivered.  You do not need to assemble them.

All clocks are delivered with clear instructions - in English - on how to safely install the clock.  It is important to read the instructions and follow them.

Please DO NOT unpack, hang the clock and then pick up the instructions!

Should you have any questions, we are more than happy to help.

 

Mechanical Clocks

All mechanical clocks run on weights or are key wound. They do not require any batteries and winding keys are supplied with the clock.

One day mechanical clocks will require the mechanism to be wound once a day.  You can wind more frequently, this will be a personal choice, but failure to wind once a day will result in the clock stopping.

Eight day mechanical clocks will require the mechanism to be wound once a week only.

 

Quartz Clocks

Quartz and radio controlled clocks are driven by batteries.  Batteries are supplied with the clock.

 

Warranty

All clocks sold on homeclocks.co.uk have a one-year warranty minimum unless otherwise stated.  When you receive your clock, we recommend that you retain all packaging and instructions. 

In the unlikely event that you should have to return the clock, this will minimise the likelihood of any damage being caused in transit.

 

How to maintain your clock ?

Mechanical clocks will not require any maintenance or repairs for at least 10 years.

Quartz clocks will require change of batteries.

However, it should be ensured the clock is kept where minimal dust can get into the mechanism.  Dust will impact on the lubrication and this can lead to damage many years down the line.

If you require to do any works in the vicinity, then move the clock to a more suitable location or cover the clock.

An effective tool in removing dust are cans of compressed air.  This will be very effective in removing the dust from hard to reach areas.  Please do not blow too hard inside the case or to close to the bellows.

When positioning the clock, it is important that the weights are allowed to run freely.  Some clocks will be quite heavy and it should be ensured that they are secured to the wall firmly.
