5 Major Clocks Chimes Now Available to Listen to at 1-800-4CLOCKS Website

With the addition of Schubert’s Ode to Joy and Beethoven’s Ave Maria Chimes, one will soon be able to listen to most all of the clocks chimes currently available.  These two newest clocks chimes add to the historically more famous, or at least utilized, chimes, which are the Westminster Chimes, St Michaels Chimes and the Whittngton Chimes.

It is worth noting that almost all of the quartz clocks playing either of these chimes give the Customer an opportunity to have not only the more traditional Chimes noted above, BUT ALSO to listen to the Ave Maria and Ode to Joy Chines on each quarter of every hour vs. hour only, which is the way Grandfather Clocks play these two newly added chimes all the time (currently, at least).  Take a look at several of the Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks to hear the different chimes.

Howard Miller Clocks and Ridgeway Clocks, in particular, offer many clocks with the Ave Maria Chimes (frequently in concert with the Westminster Chimes) and Ode to Joy Chimes.  Look around, listen, and enjoy!

    I have a DUFA Grandfather Clock. It is a simple two chain German clock circa 1920. The chimes do not match the time on the face of the clock. When the hands say 1:00, it chimes 5 times. When the hands say 2:00, it chimes 6 times. The chimes are consistently 4 hours ahead of the hands. There is a string hanging down from clock works to the left of the pendulum. When I pull that string, the chimes will sound. I do not know the purpose of this string other than to sound the chimes.

    Dear Jose,
    I also have a DUFA grandfather clock that sounds similar to yours. When I first acquired it the hour chimes were one hour out — but with mine the hour hand seems to only be held in place with little resistance. So carefully moving the hour hand around to match the chimes was the simple fix. Since then and a slight adjustment to the pendulum it has been keeping incredibly accurate time.
