Setting Westminster chimes in bulova mantel clock


The next time it chimes multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it chimes signaling 15 minutes after. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 3 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.

Howard Miller Christopher Quartz mantel clock chime adjustment


Try pulling the batteries out, set the clock to 5:45 then put the batteries back in. Set the time to 6:00 and count how many times it strikes. If it strikes 6 then your good. If it strikes a different number say 5, take the batteries back out, and set the clock to 4:45 then put the batteries back it, set clock to 5 and count the strike. Most quartz clocks reset their chimes to 5:00 when new batteries are installed regardless of the time shown on the face. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

mcdevito75 here, There should be a F/S on the back of the clock, if so place it in the middle, if not, check out a small watcg repair shop in your area.

The time and chimes are out of sync for our tempus fugit wall clock by 4 chimes does any know how to adjust it


Turn the minute hand until the 16 westminster chime operate and then the hour strikes. Remove the minute hand and simple put it back on at the 12 o-clock position. The chimes should now be in sync.

I purchased an old Hamilton mantel clock that did not run. I have cleaned and oiled it and now it works well except it losses five minutes per day. This has a German movement, spring escapement type,...


This clock has a floating balance escapement.

Hold the balance snuggly with 2 figures. Take a small screw driver and push one of the 4 legs above and attached to the disk to the "+" direction. Move it about 1/4 turn. Set the correct time and check again the next day. If the clock is still slow, move it again and set the hands. Do this until the clock is accurate.

Disclaimer: If this movement was made in the 1970 or early 1980's (The date is a 2 digit # above the movement model number). Those years the clock manufac. (Hermle) did not do well in quality materials. The may need an overhaul or movement replacement. I can provide more information if needed.
