Yes, you handled it correctly. In regard to some of the things that the observer said, it was correct. On others, he was out to lunch.

Yes, someone should have kept an eye on the clock.

No, you couldn't leave the clock at 1.3 when you didn't know it wasn't started correctly. That was a reallyu stupid comment. How can you make a judgment about time if you didn't know it didn't start properly.

Yes, the official that noticed the clock didn't start properly could have started a hand count. But he shouldn't wait more than a couple of seconds before he stops it and makes the necessary corrections.

No, you don't estimate. It's definite knowledge or nothing.
