Clocks have been used for thousands of years to measure and display time. Many things can contribute to the way a clock keeps track of the time - from water, to electricity, basic mechanics, and even the sun. This course deals with both electric and mechanical clocks.

Quartz clocks take very little maintenence, and tend to be simple to fix. Generally, they require only a battery replacement every now and then. Occasionally, they may need a new movement installed when battery replacement doesnt make them continue to work, but this tends to be a simple fix as electric clock movements are usually sold as complete pieces.

Mechanical clocks can be very simple or very complex, with moving parts to control movement of the hands, chimes, and other mechanisms that are used to indicate the time. Taking this course will teach you how each moving part of a mechanical clock movement works together to keep the clock running and keeping perfect time. You will learn a variety of repairs and adustments that are commonly needed to keep clocks in working order, which can be applied to more complex mechanisms in the future.
