This is a very, very creative clock. As I understand it, it's all gold-plated and worth a great deal ... however, it's not the most accurate clock and needs to adjust itself now and then.

A novelty way to tell the time. Clear and easy to see on street corner. A large time piece that is free to see.

Don't waste money on a tour to see the clock. It's on King's Parade and impossible to miss. It is interesting but ultimately disappointing that it isn't entirely mechanical.
