Question about Seiko Mantel Clock
I stopped my clock long enough to move the hour hand back.The chime still chimes w/the old time,one chime too many,,:1:00,it chimes 12 times.
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.
Fix Clock That Gongs Wrong

SOURCE: What ports wind what?
On mine, the center one (@the 6 position) is the one that keeps the pendulum swinging. It is the one that lengthens the most during the week and if I forget to wind it, that pendulum is all the way down when the clock stops.

Try www.klockit.com. You can replace the entire movement for about $5 including new hands. You can select from an assortment of hands that will probably match the style of what you have and use those if the old hands don't fit the new movement. I've bought several movements from them over the years. For a few more dollars you can upgrade to an "atomic clock" movement which synchronizes with the US time signal and even sets DST automatically.

SOURCE: How to syncronize time with
The hands on your clock are probably friction fit, meaning that they can be adjusted, possibly even without tools. The hour hand is usually a firm slip fit over a tube, meaning that it can be slid forward and backward an hour or more as long as you hold the minute hand steady to keep the hour shaft from turning.
The minute hand may be trickier to adjust. Sometimes, it, too, is a simple friction fit, and you can pop off the hand (remove the second hand and pull the minute hand straight up off its shaft) before setting it where it should go. Other times, however, the minute hand is on a keyed shaft and has to go on in one of two directions. It's still possible that someone could have assembled your clock incorrectly, however, making the minute hand 30 minutes out of sync with your chimes.
If neither of these ideas helps you, please describe better exactly how the time isn't matching up with the chimes. That will help us better understand the underlying issue.
