Chiming clocks have a particular charm but since most of them have been manufactured several decades ago, it is not at all uncommon to experience problems with the synchronization between the chimes played and the actual times shown by the clock. Some clocks are designed with an automatic correction device. In lack of such a device or if it is not functioning correctly, you can reset clock chimes also manually. Simply drag the minute hand back fifteen minutes, then push it forward past another fifteen minutes and so on an so forth until the time matches the chimes.
Once you have wind up both spring motors of the clock, turn the minute hand around til your here the chime. Next, count how many times the chime sounds and set the hour hand to that number. Lastly, take the minute and and turn till the right time is set, start your pendulum and you are set.
