    I have a Tempus Fugit wall clovk that has Citizen Quartz on the face. (Roman numerals) The unit is run by battery. The pendulum moves and i can hear a ticking as normal, but the hands are not moving. Neither of the hands are obstructed. I can adjust the time with the dial on the battery pack/movement box, but that's where it stays, even though the pendulum is swinging and the clock is ticking. It's a beautiful unit, but would love to know how to sort this problem. Cheers Rob.

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.

Tempus fugit German grandmother clock has a very dull sounding strike on the hour. Is this normal?


Bugs in the bells?? The hammers may also be out of alignment and are staying ON the bell rather that doing a "strike." If there are small screws on, at or near the hammers, or the mechanism that attaches to the hammers. make SMALL adjustments each hour or day, writing down what you did to each, until it works properly again.

Good Luck!

Is there a way to turn the chime off?


It depends on what type of movement you have, not all clocks have the silent option. If it does it will have a silent or chime lever on the front of the dial or it will have a small hole marked silent or chime (on the dial again). If it has the hole you will need a small key to turn it.

I want to know how to set the time on a tall grandfather clock. It has a key but I do not know how to set it and I do not want to miss it up. On the front of the clock it says Tempus Fugit Barwick. I...


I have 2 GF clocks....
To set the time, first be sure the clock is wound (weights are in the up position). Next, be sure that the pendulum is operating.... The "click, click" sound should be spaced about evenly. If not, then change the height adjustment of the feet to make the clock level...then the click will even out. Next, using only your finger, gently move the minute hand in a CLOCKWISE direction until you have set the time. You MAY wish to allow the chimes to sound at each quarter or half hour mark as you rotate the minute hand - but it is not necessary. Just keep rotating the minute hand - and the sounders will catch up and chime correctly.

Tempus fugit westminster mantle battery operated clock has 2 buttons under an H and 2 buttons under an M. how do I set the chimes? Amy Howard


I had the same problem but the solution is unbelievably simple. Just set the hands to the time desired by turning the round button on the housing. Now you mmust tell the quartz timer/clock (plastic rectangular mechanism) the same time as you have set the hands. In this way when the hands hit the Quarter hours/half hours and the hours, the electonic chimes will chime the correct time.

Ultra simple. The two hour buttons and two minute buttons represent a 24 hour clock. Example, how to set the clock to 2:50 PM. Easy, change the 2 PM to its 24 hour counterpart, i.e. 14 hundred hours.

Move the hands to 2:55. Push the first button once for 1, push the second button 4 times, push the first M button 5 times, push the second M button 5 times. Move the set button back to run and there you have it. 1455 Hours. Not it should chime correctly. As a tip, use a brand new fresh battery to try this out.

A few days ago the minute hand came off my HM Regulator keywind clock. I put the hand back on and the clock is keeping time, but the chime is not in sync with the time; re: it strikes the hour on the half...


yes
the positon of minute hand not sync with chime strikes.
you fix the minute hand as 15.minute slower and adjust the current time using time adjuster switch not with minute hand ok.
try it and solve it
