SOURCE: Chimes are nine minutes slow
Take the minute hand off and turn hand over. There is a brass bushing that attaches to the aluminum hand. Take a small screw driver and place in the square hole of the brass bushing. Turn either direction and test on the minute post of the clock. Keep adjusting until the clock chimes right on the 1/4 hour position. Make sure to put the hand back on the right 1/4 hour.

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.

You will need to do a mechanical adjustment to the hand.
Loosen the hand nut and adjust the hand the tighten.
Hope this tip helps to solve your problems

Testimonial: "i will try this. thank you so much"
SOURCE: How do you set the
Please be guided by this rule:
1. Use the minute hand only
2. Never move the hour hand by itself to set the clock
3.Never move the hand while the clock is chiming or striking.
These are the instructions. Please be guided too that It will take up to twelve hours before the chime sounds completely synchronize with the correct time.
1. Open the clock door to gain access to the clock hands.
2. Set the day/night lever all the way up --the strike position-- if applicable. Also, if your clock has automatic chime sequencing, turn it off. Setting the time with the lever set on "auto" may damage the chime mechanism.
3. Move the minute hand backward to the correct time. Do not move the hour hand--it will move as you adjust the minute hand. Moving the hand backward removes the need to wait for the chimes to sound when you pass each quarter hour. The chimes automatically synchronize with the time. It can take up to 12 hours for the chimes to sound properly and in sync with the time
I hope these will help you in your setup while patiently waits until the chime sync with your time.
Thank you for using Fixya.

IF I GATHER CORRECTLY , YOUR CLOCK HAS TWO BATTERIES, ONE AT BASE AND ANOTHER ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT. THE ONE ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CLOCK'S FUNCTIONALITY AND I THINK THE BATTERY AT BASE IS FOR THE ROTATING BALLS ( PENDULUM ). SO OPEN UP THE BACK IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, AND REPLACE THE BATTERY. CAREFULLY THOUH AS THERE RE TWO SCREWS ON TOP AND A SNAP AT CENTER BOTTOM WHICH YOU COULD EASILY BREAK IF YOU DO NOT DO IT WITH CARE. OPEN UP THE SCREWS FIRST AND GENTLY USING A SCREW DRIVER PUSH BACK ON THE SNAP HOLE TO FORCE IT UPWARDS AND INWARDS. IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE THEN WE ARE LOOKING AT TWO DIFFERENT CLOCKS.
HOPE THIS HELPS.
