The Sligh story began more than a century ago when
Charles R. Sligh began building furniture in a small
Grand Rapids factory with a handful of workers and
a belief in quality.
Select Chimes ........................................... 2
In the years that followed, Sligh became known for their
fine craftsmanship and untiring attention to detail. These
things became tradition at Sligh.

Sligh Clocks are the result of the skills of four generations
of master craftsmen creating the finest clock cabinetry
combined with the time-honored skills of the master
clock movement makers from the Black Forest region
of Germany.
A Sligh Clock is a marvelous timepiece that is much
more than just a keeper of time. It is something special
that will become part of the owner’s home and reflect the
character of the owner’s family.
And, with care, it will endure and bring enjoyment and the
pride of ownership to future generations.
For you, the tradition begins now.

5. Select Chimes
The chime selector switch (Fig. 2) is labeled
as follows:
O = Chimes shut off
W = Westminster Chime plus hour strike
The chimes may also be silenced or the
volume reduced for a period of eight hours
each day (i.e. while you’re sleeping), using
the switch marked with the sun and moons.
Chime silence or reduction will begin after
the switch is moved from the sun position to
one of the moon positions, and continue for
eight hours. The half moon position is for
volume reduction, and the half moon with a
slash through it is for silence. If you want the
chimes quieter from 11PM until 7AM move
the switch from the sun to the half moon
position sometime between 10:45 and 11PM.
The chimes will automatically become quieter
each day from 11PM to 7AM, until the switch
is moved back to the sun position (Fig. 2).
8. Troubleshooting Chimes
Fig. 2
Volume Control
Set the clock to proper time by turning the
minute hand in either direction, or use the
setting knob on the back of the movement.
NEVER move the hour hand when setting
the time.
Volume of chimes can be adjusted with the
circular knob in the upper right-hand corner
of the movement. Chime volume does affect
battery life. The louder the chime, the shorter
battery life you’ll have. You can also select to
hear chimes only at the hour, and not at the
quarter hours. This switch is indicated by the
two notched circles on the lower left-hand
corner of the movement (Fig. 2).
Time Set
For the first hour after setting the time, the
chimes may not be synchronized. They
should correct themselves automatically after
the first full hour of running. If the chimes
begin to play continuously or have a blurred
sound, check your battery; low battery power
may be the cause.
9. Timekeeping
Quarter Chime
Night Silent/
Reduction Switch
Timekeeping is controlled by a quartz crystal,
not by a pendulum, as with mechanical clocks.
The accuracy is set at the factory and cannot
be adjusted. If your clock begins to lose time,
replace the battery with a fresh one.
A/B = Ave Maria Chime plus hour strike
Chime History
Care of Your Sligh Clock
Westminster Chimes
Care of Clock’s Wood Finish
Arranged from George Fredrick Handel’s aria, “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth,”
and best known as the chimes of Big Ben, this four-bell chime is the most widely
used chime in modern clocks.
Sligh Clock’s beautiful hand-polished finish
will last for generations. Regular dusting with
a soft, lint-free cloth such as cotton, flannel,
terrycloth or cheesecloth will help maintain
the wood’s original luster. Using a slightly
dampened cloth will cut down on friction,
avoid scratches, and help reduce static
electricity that attracts and holds dust.
Hour Chime
1/4 Hour Chime
The beauty of the clock case can be maintained
by periodically using a self-cleaning furniture
polish. Soap and water is not a thorough
cleaner for wood products. Self-cleaning
furniture polishes contain both wax and
solvents which maintain luster and provide
adequate cleaning under most circumstances.
If a more thorough cleaning is necessary, use
odorless mineral spirits.
1/2 Hour Chime
3/4 Hour Chime
Ave Maria Chimes
In 1825 Franz Schubert wrote seven songs based on the poem, “The Lady of the
Lake,” by Sir Walter Scott. The poem is set in the woods of Scotland in the early
1500’s, where Ellen Douglas lived in hiding. King James V had banished the entire
Douglas clan because Archibald Douglas, Earl of Angus, had imprisoned the child
king during the early years of his reign. The song was Ellen’s prayer for safety for
herself and her father as they hid in the woods. It has become part of the standard
repetoire for sopranos under the title “Ave Maria.”
Always protect your Sligh Clock from conditions
of excessive heat, cold, dampness, and
strong sunlight.
In the event of small mars or scratches, use
a touch-up stick or scratch remover, available
from most paint stores.
Hour Chime
Care of Brass Parts
1/4 Hour Chimes
Fig. 5
The fine brass accents of your Sligh Clock
should only be handled with soft cotton
gloves or a soft cloth. Dust with a fine, soft,
clean cloth.
NEVER use an abrasive cleanser, permanent
damage will result from its use.
Cleaning Glass
Avoid getting cleaning products on brass
surfaces. Spray glass cleaner on a soft
cloth and then wipe glass surfaces. Never
spray directly onto the cabinet or brass
finish (Fig. 5).
Always spray cleaning products on soft
cloth, not directly on surface of clock.
