Quartz Battery Chime Clock Movement Info


Dual Chime (Advanced, Seiko Type)

Dual Chime Quartz Movement Instructions

Please Note: The movement will not chime the quarters when the time is being set, only the hourly chimes. The quarters will start when the clock is done being set and about 90 minutes after being left alone to chime on its own.


Seiko clock movement instructions

Push the HOUR hand onto the post at the 6 o'clock position.

Place MINUTE hand on 12 o'clock and tighten minute hand nut.

Press SECOND hand onto the shaft at 12 o'clock position (if you are using one). Your hands are now set to the CHIME of the motor.

Using the hand setter, located on the upper right side of the movement, turn the hands clockwise to the correct time of day.

Insert one C-cell battery. The motor will be running and set for the correct chime and time of day.

To listen to 24 hour chime and strike, place the AM / PM switch in the LEFT position, for night-time silence (between the hours of 11:00PM and 5:45AM) place the AM / PM switch in the RIGHT position.

The song switch on the left side of the movement is to select Westminster or Whittington. It is denoted with a 1 or 2. Slide the switch to whatever song you want the clock to chime.

Now the clock is properly set up


Making it chime on time

Firstly; we need to know, the clock chime is correct. No matter what the hands say the time is: the chime is correct (figuratively speaking). We only need to have the hands point to where the clock thinks it is, or where it is chiming, in other words. And then set the clock to time.

So to point the hands to where the clock chimed we need to remove the hands, and put them back on the clock where the clock chimed. In other words, if it chimed out that it is 3 o'clock, put the hour hand to the three and the minute hand to the 12.

IF the clock minute hand doesn't chime exactly at the 12: Find the circle spinning setting knob on the back of the movement and hold this still with your fingers, so it will not move. At the same time, while you stop this from moving, point the minute hand to the 12 where it was supposed to point to when it chimed. Let go of both, and it will be correct from then on forth. This adjustment may take a couple of tries.
