Not being familiar with the chiming type of clocks, I would imagine that based on the military time method, 2400 would be mid-night the same day, while one second after mid-night would start the next day. 00:00:01. You could use the links below to see the official US or Universal time and just see which chime begins the new day. Of course you'd need a computer close to the clock you're using and make sure the clock is in sync with the online official time. Good Luck! Sounds like a good way to make this a scientific investigation.

The first moment of the day is midnight. Remember that the first number is zero, not one. We all recognize this reality when we observe the start of a New Year at midnight, not at one second after midnight.
