Instructions for Hermle Quartz Anniversary Clock with Chime Movement W2322


Westminster melody at the full hour

Hour strike

Night shutoff from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

One battery for time (in back of clock) and two batteries for chime (in base)

1) Unpack the clock carefully

2) Starting the clock

Take off glass dome (on a metal case clock you have to open the back door), open battery cover by using a screwdriver. Insert an AA Duracell battery according to the symbol on the battery cover. Clock is now keeping time.

3) Set the time

Turn the hand setting knob at the back side of the clock, either clockwise or counterclockwise.

4) Chime Setting

Turn the clock upside down and note the "TEST" button on the base. Press the TEST button once.

Insert 2 Duracell AA batteries (observing the orientation shown on the drawing). Push the TEST button once and the clock will strike 6:00.

Count the number of hours from 6:00 a.m. until the last full hour of the actual time, and press the TEST button that number of times. Your chime is now programmed.

Example: Actual time: 2:30 p.m. Set the hands to 2:30. Press TEST button once before inserting the batteries into the base. Insert the batteries into the base. Press TEST button and the clock plays the Westminster melody and strikes 6:00. Full hours between 6:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. = 8 hours. Press TEST button 8 times - clock strikes 2:00. The next full hour the clock will strike 3:00.

Attention: The clock has automatic night shut-off. If everything is set correctly as described above, the clock will not chime from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

5) Pendulum Lock

Take off transportation safety lock under the pendulum carefully (cardboard insert or plastic clip).

(Some of the models could have a screwed-in transportation safety lock. Unscrew knurled screw counterclockwise in the base until it stops so that the pendulum can rotate.)

Start pendulum operation by gently rotating pendulum one turn to the left or right. Be sure that the bottom of the pendulum is centered in the cup.

6) Put glass dome on or close the door

7) Weak or dead battery

If the clock loses time or the pendulum stops, please replace the battery in back. If the chimes stop, replace the two batteries in the base.
