Question about Watches
Problem started since the clock once stopped spontaneously one month back when it was fully wounded
More than likely, there are springs that activate the levers for it to chime, or bong, they may have got jammed up, you can open it up, and see if you see anything like that, if not, you will have to take it to your local jewelry store, or watch/clock makers to have them take a look. You never indicated what type of clock (make or model) so I can\'t be certain. Maybe a ships clock? They may want to charge you for a overhaul of the movement, but you can tell them to just "make it work" if it was running fine before (keeping time well) then an overhaul probably isn\'t necessary. It sounds like something may have got jammed.
I hope this helps !

Testimonial: "i will try this. thank you so much"
You were not very specific about you clock description, Many of the German clocks were using auto correct features.
You may not have this function.
Move the hour hand to the correct hour.
Hope this tip help you.

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.
