Which hands go on first on a watch?
You should check first the hour hand. It should be as low as possible without coming into contact with the dial. Pay attention especially to the center of the dial; the rest of the hand can be away from the dial while the center of the hand is in touch with the dial.
Can watch hands be cleaned?
Clean watch hands with detergent. Remove any heavy corrosion using a glass scratch brush. To remove paint you can use acetone. Polish hands on a leather buff stick with rouge to remove any scratches.
Why is the second hand on my watch not moving?
When the hands are stopped completely, there is a possibility of the rechargeable battery being out of charge. If this occurs, please recharge it by a window by exposing it to sunlight for 5-6 hours before using it again. In case the watch is used before a sufficient recharging, it may stop again.
