I liked this Chinese clock when I saw it, the case is beautiful with banded veneers The bezel and face are outlined in red. It is a day and date clock and displays them under the 12. Above the 6 is an openning that displays military time. The movement door has a place for the key and the pendulum bob. It chimes on the half and on the hour and keeps great time. Now if I can figure out how to set the day and date I will be doing fine. There is a small arbor under the military time opening that I am thinking will allow me to set some part if not all of it. I think the key is not original, I believe the original was a two headed key. I guess you could say I have a fetish for calendar clocks.

    Amazing. The clock has a recessed area in the door for both the pendulum weight and the key, which I've not seen before, and someone still manages to lose the key.

    This is the first Chinese clock that I have ever seen that is all original and great looking to boot! I really like it! I am accustomed to seeing Chinese produced clocks put together with gum and a myriad of parts that came from who knows where! Thank you for sharing this one~

    Hi

    I had one of these clocks, though it was in Japanese or Chinese and sold it on eBay. I like the idea, but your one is in English which is easier to follow. Nice to see another one.

    Thanks for sharing.
