Troubleshooting Sky Watcher Tourbillon Table Clock Assembly
When assembling Sky Watcher Tourbillon Table Clock, please make sure the following is done:
- All parts of the tourbillon are fully pressed and there are no gaps
- Burrs between the teeth of the gears, as they can prevent the gears from rotating
- Parts #130 and 131 are installed correctly
- All metal washers in the tourbillon are installed correctly
- Excessive paraffin on the parts can be removed with a toothbrush

Hello my clock kinda works but kinda doesn’t, if I put the levers in a specific way it works for like a few minutes but it doesn’t take one minute to go around once if I’m correct if one the second arrow points where the first one started one minute should’ve passed but it takes longer than a minute and changing the second lever doesn’t change anything from the speed either and no matter how I set lever A it doesn’t spin till the charge is empty I’ve waxed every part the right way and I’ve built it exactly like the manual with every part where it belongs
I came across the same problem with the tourbillon-spring.
I solved this by attaching a very tiny peace of under the second adjustable lever so the spring could not slip out of it.
Furthermore I wound the spring up one turn and I slid the end of the spring into the second lever with the now attached tiny peace of wood glued underneath the open side. Now the problem of the spring was solved.
I now have but one issue still to resolve: the clock halts every hour or so in exactly the position and will not run any further unless I swing the tourbillon-wheel. Did you also encounter this problem? And if so, didyou find a solution?
Be happy to hear from you.
Hello, I bought this product a couple of months ago and I recommend putting another piece 132 between h5 and 133. I have followed the documentation and sometimes it stops. The J part and h5 collide slightly and that deceleration may be enough to stop the clock. It happens when h5 is 45° down going up because both parts moves slightly but unfortunately not both at the same time. It is a pity that the documentation is missing and now I am afraid of breaking a piece disassembling it. A pity because everything is perfect except that, it is frustrating when it stops. Except that, perfect!
