Take the clock and key carefully out of the carton.
Carefully remove the protective packaging such as foam rubber, corrugated paper, rubber bands, etc. You will find these mainly where the hammers, gongs or bells are located, inside the back of the clock. Open front door and remove the plastic safety bushing. Save the packing in case the clock needs to be returned.
Please wind your clock fully every 7 days for optimum performance (the clock will actually run about 8 - 9 days on one winding). To wind the clock use the enclosed key. Turn key clockwise until it stops. The left winder is for the striking and the right winder is for the time.
If striking is not required, do not wind up the left winding square (some models have a strike shutoff lever located inside the back of the clock).
Move the minute hand (long hand) clockwise or counterclockwise to set the clock to the correct time. The clock will strike the number of each hour, and will strike once on the half-hour.
If the clock is striking the wrong hour, move the hour hand (short hand) to point to the hour that the clock just struck.
To make the clock go slower or faster, turn the regulating screw that is shown in the upper left of the picture below.
To make clock go faster: turn screw clockwise
To make clock go slower: turn screw counterclockwise.
Showing the regulator for adjusting the timekeeping. The screw at the very top left is turned with a screwdriver. Make only a small adjustment each time (about 1/16 of a turn).
Clockwise = faster
Counterclockwise = slower
