1. I should add “setting the clock” means with the white switch in the set position, move the hands to the desired time. The set chime using the HH MM button is 24-hour format, e.g. for 1:15pm (13:15 in 24-hour time), press the left H button 1 time; the right H button 3 times; the left M button 1 time; the right M button 5 times.) Then move the switch from “set” to “run” To test press, the test button once. Clock should play entire Westminster Chime followed by the hour , 1 strike for 1:00pm. The black switch on the left has 3 positions, “on” clock chimes quarter hour 24-hours/day, “off” no chime, “auto” no chime between 11pm & 6am.

  2. I apologize if this seems obvious. I have the same movement. After setting the clock, you must move the white switch (2nd from left in the above diagram) from the set position (down) to the start position (up).

  3. Looking for instructions on how to set chimes on Tochigi tokei movement with C battery and speaker for the chimes, has numbers 15109 & 2121S stamped under the battery. Battery ran down and when replaced it the chimes are not correct, clock runs good and it will chime at 15 and 45 but not at 30 and sixty. Any help will greatly appreciated. Thanks

  4. I was THRILLED THRILLED THRILLED to find this!!!!! I bought a clock with this exact movement off ebay and had NO clue how to get it working-it works now thanks to this!!!! 🙂 THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this vital information! I spent most of my day trying to figure the clock out, as well as search the internet to find any information at all, but found nothing until I found this! 🙂

  5. I have this exact movement. The battery finally went dead and I replaced it with a new one, however the hands do not move. The clock chimes at the appropriate times and hour chimes advance normally. There is no beep when setting the clock and the test button has no effect. The new battery has a terminal voltage of 1.61 volts when in the clock so it is fully charged. I can’t quite understand why the chimes work but the buttons make no sound.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause this?
