You have to move the hour hand without the mechanism moving.

Usually there's enough stiction to allowyou to rotate the needle while the shaft is held in place by the gear mechanism. In an extreme case you may need to pull the needle off the shaft and then push it backon in the right position.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Will you be fixing the clock before or after ?
