The bildungsroman frame-tale of Flann O'Brien's At Swim-Two-Birds concludes with the pealing of the Angelus, which tells us that the watch the narrator's uncle has just given him in a gesture of reconciliation is 6 minutes slow.  Greg Dobbins has a great piece on this novel and postcolonial "Irish time" in the spring 2009 Novel.  There are echoes from early Christian bells throughout the novel as well.

The bells of St Pancras are quite important in Dorothy Richardson's Pilgrimage - they are bound up with her heroine Miriam's love of the city.
