Clocks chime the hour
what is the point of having a clock that chimes every 2 hours because you will not know how long it was from the last chime or be able to calculate the time between chimes

Posted on Dec 28, 2015

Testimonial: "I've always had chiming clocks and love them for time management. I have a specific task that needs to be completed every two hours and was wondering if the clock can do that. No reason to ask what is the point because if I'm asking the question, there IS a point!"

    you are like all the rest--you are always short on details but quick to criticize an answer
    you never mentioned that you have a specific reason for the 2 hour requirement but stated that you wanted a 2 hour chiming clock which you won't get and it is as simple as that
    if you have something to do every 2 hours get a timer that rings a bell and set it for 2 hour intervals
    and next time you want to ask a question , think it through and include every detail to get the answer that YOU want---It is as simple as that

    Bill, if you hadn't been so passiely agressive if your original response, this entire conversation would have gone differently.
    This was the first time on this site after googling my question. Stating the obvious that clocks chime on the hour, and then the remark about "what's the point" put me on the defensive with you and perhaps the site. And if I'm looking for a clock that chimes every two hours, then that is my question. I don't have to state the reason, do I? A timer woulodn't due as I wouldn't be in a position to reset it every hit. So, really this hasn't been simple at all. All I wanted to know was could it be set for ever two hours. "It's as simple as that". Happy New Year Bill.
    Regards, Carole

    you obviously do not know how timers work as you set it for 2 hour operations and forget it and every 2 hours it will switch on
    I have to talk simple ---and don't be aggressive with me as like all people with a mobile phone you type and send with out reading your questions and statements to see if it makes sense--- just like your last comment

How do I make the watch stop chiming on the hour?


It seems that most 4 button electronic watches have similar directions. There should be four buttons. Clockwise from top left is the Light button, followed by S2 (Stop), S1 (Reset) and finally on the lower left S3 (Mode). Who knows why they are numbered this way. To set hourly chime Hold down S1 and press S3. When all 7 day flags show the chime is on. When they are off the chime is off. To set the alarm hold down S1 and press S2. Alarm icon will display or go off. Release S1 button and display will return to normal time. Hope this works for your watch

1. From "Normal Time Mode", press and hold "D" (Alarm) and
at the same time press "C" (Date) once. Hourly chime symbol,
( a house shape) appears in "chime" windows to indicate
the hourly chime will beep every hour.

How do i synchronize my chimes on a westminster quartz abacus 401c wall clock


If it is like mine you press the test button until you hear the chime. Wait for the hour chime to go and count it. If it chimes once for 1PM and you need it set to 6PM then you press the test button to reset the chime and repeat press the button 5 times. This will set the chime to 6 PM. If you get lost on the time press until it makes no noise. This means you are 11PM or later and continue to then press until it makes noise again. Count the hour chimes and you are at the count in the AM. Repeat the steps and keep pressing to get to the proper AM or PM hour count..

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.
