How to make the clock chime when its supposed to.

First we need to know, the clock chime is correct no matter what it says the chime is, it's right. We only need to have the hands point to where the clock thinks it is, or where its 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 chimes that it's 3 o'clock, put the hour hand to the three and the minute hand to the 12.

If the clock minute does not point exactly to the 12, do this: Find the circle spinning setting knob on the back of the movement. Hold this still with your fingers so it will not move. At the same time you stop this from moving, point the minute hand to the 12. Let go of both.

Do you have to use the red minute hand with the Non-Pendulum Seiko-Chiming Battery Movement or is that optional?

Movement is 2 1/2′ x 3 1/4′ x 1 1/2, most likely it will be a winner.

Sounds like the hands came loose or the battery jumped out.

Reinstall hands so the hour hand is tight, be sure batteries are set in right.

Replacing a hermle 2214 quartz chime. Do you have a seiko movement that will replace it?

The 2215 pendulum units, and the 2115 non pendulum units are now obsolete and no longer made. Same with 2214 and 2114. There was some problematic issues with these units and they are now discontinued.

We do have a couple alternate units however.

1. QU30 pendulum or non pendulum unit. This one still plays two songs, has volume control, its made by Seiko instead of Hermle, and it can have a pendulum also.

2. QU40 pendulum or non pendulum unit. This one has four chime options and the sound quality is most equivalent to the Hermle units. It has the Westminster and Ava Maria options just like the 2215 / 2115 units.

Both of these units can be found at this link
https://clockworks.com/clock-movement/quartz-specialty-clock-movements.html

However the hand shaft (The shaft that the clock hands go onto) is measured differently than the Hermle units. Instead of a long nut that mounts the movement from the front dial side, these instead have a threaded post that will go through the dial from the back to the front of the dial.

You only need to determine the thickness of your clocks dial face material, and get a post length that is longer than that thickness.

Here is a chart to help you.

If you measure the Hermle quartz units hand shaft length in MM, these are the compatible post lengths that will fit your clock case and dial.

Hermle Hand Shaft Length // Replacement units post size needed
16mm = 5/16 inch post length
21mm = 9/16 inch post length
26mm = 3/4 inch post length

Another thing to mention is you need new hands also with your new clock movement. This is because the Hermle hands do not fit easy on these units. If you insist on using the Hermle hands, sometimes people are able to make them work by filing them some. The hands will be offered to you upon checking out on the website with the new unit.

One more thing to mention. The Hermle units are shaped in a unique way and the replacement units I am offering to you are not the same dimensional. Please be sure to notice the measurements of these units and check your clock case to be sure it will fit into it before ordering.

Reply to  Bruce Budd

Yes, there is a speaker holder on the back of the movement that can be unscrewed, you then screw it wherever you like in the clock case. Speaker is on wires to reach to where ever its placed
