The Chimes can be turned off with the lever on the front facia. However, the hourly chimes do go out of snyc if the time is adjusted manually and the hands moved too quickly but is usual for these types of clocks, so care must be taken when setting up the correct time. The clock is currently running with the hourly chimes in sync. The Oak Case is in good condition and the clock face is showing a very small amount of age related wear.Theres a lovely bevelled edge glass front to the case. The latch on the rear door is functional but is a little stiff. We have many other collectable items for sale at affordable prices, please feel free to take a look.
