Where you will find this:

Another unusual feature that Morbiers have is that they strike twice on the
hour: for example, at 6:00, the clock strikes six times, and at 6:02, the
clock strikes six times again. My understanding is that the first strike was
a call to prayer and the second strike was to indicate when to begin prayer.
The clock also strikes once on the half hour.
