SOURCE: Setting the hands on this watch

press your "mode" button 5 times until it says on lower display "H-SET". Then press the "adjust" button until it beeps.

Now hold the "forward" button and the minute hand is moving.

Enjoy :o))))

SOURCE: Watch hands don't coincide with the digital time.

This usually occurs when the battery is changed. There should be a process for synchronising the two times detailed in the manual.

To get a manual you go to "http://tissot.ch/" and on the black menu bar at the bottom of the page you will see "product support". Click on this and you will go to a page of instructions. Download yours and find the relevant method for putting your watch right.

Testimonial: "You were right. I downloaded the manual and the synchronisation instructions were there. Still not sure how it happened. But thanks so much!"

I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and the clock is keeping time but pendulum is barely moving. What's the problem?


Hi Pam,
I have a Howard Miller Grandfather clock and the pendulum swings very slowly and from far left to far right travels only about three inches at best. It doesn't need to move any more than that to make the "Verge" move the "Escape Wheel" to rotate the gears to keep the hands moving at the correct tick.

If the clock has a real clockspring mechanism ( with dozens of visible gears), then the problem is likely it needs to be cleaned.and adjusted.

Polaris grandfather clock runs slow need to adjust time up


You have to adjust the bob on pendulum. If the clock is slow, the bob on the rod must be pushed up. If the clock is fast, the bob must be pushed down. Do adjustments bit by bit, day by day till the clock is keeping time. If all this does not work, you may need to replace suspension spring (if there is any). If there are no suspension spring, the clock may need proffessional attention.

Edward Meyer 31 Day Grandfather Clock manual


I recently bought an Edward Meyer clock from Grandfather clocks for less. The clock is beautiful, but it never chimed. I even took it apart and repaired the chimes, the hammers were too far away from the chiming rods, but now that it does chime, it sounds like someone banging pots and pans together, it's horrible. I've been looking online to find replacement chime and hammer parts so I can fix it myself.

Re: Galleria / Metro Grandfather Clocck. W/ pendulum on lower hanger clock runs slow. W/ pendulum on upper hanger clock runs fast. How can I adjust so it will keep correct time, or should I take it to a...


Most grandfather/grandmother clocks have an adjustable screw on the weight to slightly extend it or shorten it to satisfy the equation of pendulum swing. the shorter the swing (arc distance) the faster the clock, the longer the swing the longer the time. Check to see if you can adjust the weight up or down on the hanger.

Coaster model 900723 grandfather clock doesn't keep time


Everybody should know that the coaster clocks discussed here run on batteries. The timing mechanisms, the chimes as well as the pendulum all are powered by a battery. Changing the speed of the pendulum is impossible because there is no adjustment. Besides, it wouldn't matter anyway. The pendulum has now affect on the clock's ability to keep accurate time. It is purely aesthetic. This is a pretty cool looking clock and even has weights, but those are also purely aesthetic and do not move the way a classic grandfather clock weight would move. The moments with these clocks are not designed to be worked on. These clocks are relatively inexpensive (approximately $300) but do add a nice look to your home. Grandfather clocks snobs would say though; this is not a true timepiece. They're right... Sorry._1513.jpg
