Question about SkyScan 86709 Atomic Wall Clock

Salton Chiming Wall Clock is chiming inconsistently

We have a Salton Quartz Chiming Wall Clock that bongs the hours on the hour and then plays the Big Ben melody. Occasionally, the first few bongs on the hour are many times louder and more annoying than the normal bongs. This is a battery powered clock with fresh batteries. Are there electronics within the clock/chiming mechanism that may be faulty?

After spot cleaning mantle clock with German movement (circa 1960), the clock chimes properly on the hour but does not chime on the half hour.


I am hoping that you oiled it also? One trick I have found is to gently lift the hammers and release, sometimes the hammers will release and strike the chimes/gong. Do this 4-5 times and hopefully it will get it chiming for you again.

How do I get it to chime on every hour


most chiming clocks only chime on the hour from 6 am to 9 pm
if it is a digital clock with a chimer the set it to 12 hour and not 24 hour
make sure that the chime has a good battery in the chime circuit and it is set to chime on the correct hour
If the statement made to you was correct then it would be chiming at night instead of the day

My clock chimes the correct amount of chimes on all hours except 7. At 7 it chimes 5 times


In a quartz movement clock, with a problem like this, the chime box (or whole movement) will need to be replaced. Timesavers.con carries a large selection of chiming quarts movements.

Strausbourg Manor Wall Clock chime adjustment


It is normal for the average wall clock. Of course, this can be adjusted, but without watch/clockmaking knowledge it is impossible, because first you need to find out which part of the movement is causing early chiming - and there are plenty of them.
Super fine adjustment can be found only in top of the range clocks. Hundreds of hours of craftsmenship are spent to adjust and fine tune them. That's why they cost a fortune.
If you can not live with that early chiming, you have to bring your clock down to the watch/clock repair shop and ask for help. Be ready to pay quite a money, as this job takes the skill and a lot of time.

Rate me, please.
