I have a Waltham battery operated wall clock. I love this clock but it doesn't chime the hours correctly. 11:00 only chimes 3 times, 12:00 chimes correct but 3:00 chimes once.

If you manually set the time, the chimes will be off unless you wait for the chiming to finish before continuing to turn the hands.

Press the TEST button to get the correct number of chimes in synch with the actual time.

SOURCE: i have a forestville wall clock with the pull down

Stop the pendulum of the clock exactly at any even hour. Lets say at 6.00. While clock is steady and not working, pull off the minute and hour hands off the pinion, but do not brake them. You have to pull without any twisting action. This will leave pinions exactly in place they were when you stopped the clock. When it is done - push the hour hand back onto the pinion and make sure it is pointing at 4 (not 6, as it was when you stopped the clock). When hour hand is back in place and pointing at 4, push back minute hand as it was when you pulled it off - pointing at 12. Make sure hands will not catch when passing each other (you can bend them slightly if needed). Now swing pendulum to start the clock and adjust time (clockwise only). Never adjust time when clock is chiming. Rate me, plz.

SOURCE: timex westminster anniversary chime clock doesn't chime correct number

Take the batteries out from the base, where the chime mechanism is. Wait till it gets close (20 seconds till) to a specific hour time, like 8:00 or 9:00, replace the batteries for the chime mechanism. And then count the chimes at the hour. If they are correct, you are set. If they are incorrect, turn the time back 15 minutes before the hour and bring it right back and monitor the chimes again. Hopefully this should fix it. Please post the results.

I have a Regulator Waltham wall clock. When I wound the chimes, it just kept going until it wound down. How do I set it so it chimes on the hour.


Hate to say it, but it is time to get it to a clock repair shop. You could learn to do it yourself but that would take years and then you have the costs of the tools you would need, take it to a shop.

How can I get my clock to chime the right time? It is always one hour too much.


  • First see if changing the time with the battery out changes the time without changing the cycle on the chime - I could just imagine somebody adjusting the clock for daylight savings and the clock doesn't change it's chime cycle correctly with the battery a certain way - in or out - maybe it's the opposite and you have to take the battery out and somebody didn't now you have to leave it in.
  • Check the internet for the original manual if you know the model.
  • Look for clues to setting the chime on the back? is there a separate knob - are the batteries both good?
Still not working after playing with it? Here is the mechanical way to fix it:
Sounds great, but it still is chiming the wrong time after playing with it? This will fix it:
  • Set the clock for exactly at the chime - I suggest 3 o'clock chime - the hands will be wrong (2 or 4 or whatever)
  • Remove the battery(s) - I do custom imprinted clock faces and it seems to me that 3 o'clock is the easy place for me to put the hands back.
  • Take the clock apart - usually it is tiny screws on the back, or you will see 3 or 4 v shaped wires. push the v wire out of one side - they are springs that some clocks use to hold the rim instead of the screws - they are easier than they look - just pull one side and remove.
  • Gently pull up each hand off the shaft. I hope you have fingernails.
  • Replace the hands back at exactly the time that they are supposed to be (3 o'clock in my example) - you start with the hour hand and gently push on the spindle make it look level and all the way on - then the minute hand at 12 also level
    • Remember to play with the time first so you'll be happy that you put the hands exactly where the chime should start.
    • Remember to make that time be exactly on the hour with the small hand and exactly on the 12 with the big hand so the hands line up correctly.

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

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.

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.
