I have a Waltham Regulator Wall clock. It chimes 4 minutes late on the hour and 1/2 hour. How do I adjust it to chime on the hour and 1/2 hour? I've tried moving the minute hand with no luck.

Try this,remove batteries,set clock to 6 o'clock,reinstall batteries,then clock should chime,turn adjuster till you are at the right time,make sure your on am or pm,it doesn't chime at 10 pm- 5 am,so that will tell you if your at am or pm.When adjusting it will chime everytime you go past the hour.You can never go backwards,if you do then you will need to remove batteries and start over,use your phone's time to set.

SOURCE: Strausbourg Manor Wall Clock chime adjustment

It is normal for the average wall clock. Of course, this can be adjusted, but without watch/clockmaking knowledge it is impossible, because first you need to find out which part of the movement is causing early chiming - and there are plenty of them.
Super fine adjustment can be found only in top of the range clocks. Hundreds of hours of craftsmenship are spent to adjust and fine tune them. That's why they cost a fortune.
If you can not live with that early chiming, you have to bring your clock down to the watch/clock repair shop and ask for help. Be ready to pay quite a money, as this job takes the skill and a lot of time.

Rate me, please.

I have a Regulator Waltham wall clock. When I wound the chimes, it just kept going until it wound down. How do I set it so it chimes on the hour.


Hate to say it, but it is time to get it to a clock repair shop. You could learn to do it yourself but that would take years and then you have the costs of the tools you would need, take it to a shop.

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.

I have a forestville wall clock with the pull down weights. when it chimes it is behind in time. example nine oclock chimes seven oclock, it is a made in germany clock but what year i do not know. there...


Stop the pendulum of the clock exactly at any even hour. Lets say at 6.00. While clock is steady and not working, pull off the minute and hour hands off the pinion, but do not brake them. You have to pull without any twisting action. This will leave pinions exactly in place they were when you stopped the clock. When it is done - push the hour hand back onto the pinion and make sure it is pointing at 4 (not 6, as it was when you stopped the clock). When hour hand is back in place and pointing at 4, push back minute hand as it was when you pulled it off - pointing at 12. Make sure hands will not catch when passing each other (you can bend them slightly if needed). Now swing pendulum to start the clock and adjust time (clockwise only). Never adjust time when clock is chiming. Rate me, plz.

Chimes are nine minutes slow


Take the minute hand off and turn hand over. There is a brass bushing that attaches to the aluminum hand. Take a small screw driver and place in the square hole of the brass bushing. Turn either direction and test on the minute post of the clock. Keep adjusting until the clock chimes right on the 1/4 hour position. Make sure to put the hand back on the right 1/4 hour.
