    Very nice, thanks for sharing, love this piece.

    You're welcome, I have but one question, how does the "set" work, is there a lever or push pin to differ from wind?

    Kerry, There is an setting arbor located in the center of the hands that the key fits on. Then you turn the key to set the time.

    Kerry, I have added a photo showing the key on the setting arbor. I hope this will answer your question.

    Neat, wasn't even thinking that the key worked on the face side, pretty neat.
