Clocks, Watches/ingraham calender wall clock


the date hand is off by 5 hours changes @ 7pm not 12pm how do I CORRECT THIS THANK YOU.

Do you have a method to advance the striking with a wire hanging down below the dial inside the clock? when it trips at 7pm- leave the minute hand there and trip the hour gears with the wire till you get 12-- then move the hour hand itself from 7 to 12 = done

if not, when it trips at 7 pm move the hour hand as above --then move the minute hand clockwise thru the 1/2 hour ( allowing it to strike once-if it does the 1/2 normally)
then bring the minute hand up to 3 minutes before the hour and then back it up to 20 minutes of the hour --it should strike and advance the strike count each time you do this - let it strike and then repeat till you get 12 -- then move the minute hand clockwise thru the 1/2 and then the one o'clock strike.

both methods will re-align the calendar to trip at 12

set the current correct time by advancing the minute hand till you get there (wait for each striking to finish)

or you can stop the clock till one AM and then restart it!
