Question about Elgin Travel Alarm Clock

# I have an Elgin anniversary clock (battery operated) with no manual. How do I set the chimes to match the clock? It has a red button and a black button on the rear of the clock. The black button beeps when you push it.

I have the same problem. I hope someone answers this some day. Mine also has a revolving pendulum which only spins for a while if I twist it. It's looks like an Atmose type pendulum.

I have a 20 yr old Elgin Anniversary Clock with the Magic Eye battery operated. It chimes 15 mins after the hour. How do I correct this?

There are two steps to setting the chimes, although I am really not sure if step two is needed. Here is how I set mine:

When I set mine, the time was 9:31 a.m.

Step 1- Press the red button (H) 9 times.
Step 2- Press the black button (M) 31 times.

I have the solution. set the clock hands, using the little wheel on the back, moving the hands clockwise, to 4 or 5 minutes before any hour. Put the battery in and let the clock run till it chimes at the hour. Count the chimes. Let's say you set it to chime at 10:00. If it chimes six times push the BLACK button 4 times. Be sure it beeps each time you push it. As soon as you finish pushing the Black button the correct number of times then push the RED button once. Now set the clock using the wheel and turning the hands clockwise, to the correct time. Place the dome back on and enjoy. You can leave the battery in during all this setting procedure.

### 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.
