We have a Sligh grandfather clock. I mistakenly adjusted

Customer Question

we have a Sligh grandfather clock. I mistakenly adjusted time change by moving the HOUR hand.. Now clock chimes one hour forward- if it is 10 clock chimes 11. What do I do?***@******.***
JA: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Please tell me everything you can so the Clock Technician can help you best.
Customer: I reset for daylight savings time by moving the hourhand. Now clock chimes 11 at 10 etc
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Clock Technician should know?
Customer: Help please. Bill

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. The easiest way is the next time the clock chimes the hour move the hour hand only in a clockwise manor to match the number of chimes then move the minute hand in a clockwise manor stopping to let the clock chime until you reach the correct time. Try this option and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike
