One of the many commendations you can complete during The Journey to Mêlée Island Tall Tale is the ‘Save the Clock Tower’ commendation. You can start working on the commendation once you arrive at Mêlée Island during this Tall Tale.

If you are just looking to complete ‘Save the Clock Tower’, repair the clock, and set it to midnight, your first step is to purchase the Chef’s Uniform! If you need any help buying the uniform, you’ll want to follow our guide here first.
Once you have purchased and equipped the uniform, you can repair the clock and set it to midnight!
How to repair the clock and set it to midnight
While wearing the Chef’s Uniform, go to the Kitchen in the Scumm Bar. The Chef will see you and leave the Kitchen, allowing you to use the barrel with Extra-Potent Grog.
Equip your Tankard and approach the barrel of Extra-Potent Grog. Interact with the barrel to refill your Tankard and head into the bar.
Find the pirate with the Clock Tower key and pour him the Extra-Potent Grog three times. After the third time, the pirate will pass out, and you can steal the Clock Tower Key.
Fix the Clock Tower
With the Clock Tower Key in hand, head to the Clock Tower in Low Street and use the key on the door below the tower. Walk through the door and climb the stairs to another locked door you will open with the key.
Once inside the Gear Room, walk over to the clock gears. You’ll see that something is preventing them from moving. Unjam the gears by interacting with the skeleton arm stuck in the gears. The arm will fly out and land on the floor, allowing you to use the wheel to rotate the gears.
Use the wheel in the Gear Room and turn it all the way to the left until the two clock hands point at the number XII and the Clock Tower chimes.
