Title: Device for regulating the minute hand of a clock having at least a minute hand and a second hand

Abstract: An arrangement for setting the minute hand of a timepiece which has at least minute and second hands 29, having a setting stem 1 which can be moved axially out of a normal position into a setting position. In this case, upon movement of the setting stem 1 out of the normal position into the setting position, a zero setting drive of the second hand 29 can be driven such that it moves the latter into its zero position and the seconds stem 28, which bears the second hand 29, can be driven via a seconds-display drive mechanism 30 of the movement mechanism of the timepiece. The seconds-display drive mechanism 30 has a blocking device which can be actuated, by virtue of the setting stem 1 being moved in the direction of the setting position, such that the seconds-display drive mechanism 30 is blocked before the second hand 29 is moved into the zero position.
