I'm not sure how to make the time start
You have to wind the watch manually after you buy it. there should be a little knob at about 3 o'clock. Turn it clockwise about 40 times. Make sure you wear it enough (8 hours a day) or else you have to wind it every day like this

Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime
I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
*Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
*Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.

I have a Junghans Mega Atomic mantel clock (grey
First, reset the clock to 0:00 hours. The instant the clicking stops, pop out the battery. The second hand stem should be at 0:00 hours. The front cover can only be removed from the bottom. Put both thumbs at the bottom of the font cover and push inward, but not too forcefully (Junghans stopped selling replacement covers shortly after dropping the product line and they are nearly impossible to find). The center should lift up enough to slide a thin credit/promotion/gift card under the center tab on the bottom. Then work the card up either slide to disengage the other four tabs. The five tabs are located at the bottom center, one each on both straight sides alligned with the top of the digital display, one at 7.5 minutes, and the last one at 52.5 minutes. That is easy part. Now comes the hard one
You then need to glue the second hand back onto its stem. Superglue (cyanoacrylate based) works best. The second hand must be attached perfectly level or it could scrape the cover, the clock face, and the other hands as it rotates on a tilt. Practice a few times before applying the glue. You will notice that the socket on the second hand fits the stem very loosely. Once you are ready to glue, apply one drop of superglue on the second hand socket and mount it on the centermost stem and hold it perfectly still and in proper alignment and steady for a minute or so for the glue to set. Once the glue dries, put the battery in and let it run long enough to determine if the second hand is in correct alignment.
Remove the battery again. Make certain the clock face is completely free of dust and dirt before reattachment of the cover. Insert the cover from the top down snapping the five tabs into place. It may be necessary to reverse the removal process. Then you can reinsert the battery.
The process worked for me when mine was accidentally knocked onto the carpet and the second hand was detached from the force of the impact. In fact, I can no longer tell which one I performed the repair on.
