This total mechanical clock has a very noticeable large square glass dial, with 2 hands pointing to the time with Roman numerals. The glass dial is completely see through with no visible mechanism of any kind, yet the hands correctly indicate the current time. The glass dial is securely housed by an ornate gilt frame and supported by a post connected to the lower base. The 8 day time movement is located inside the black base. Without revealing the mystery behind how this clock works, I will stop the basic description of this clock here. Lastly, this clock stands 14" tall and its base measures 7-3/4" wide and 5-3/8" deep. This extremely clock is in full working order. The glass dial has a little chip on the upper right corner, however, it doesn't effect the proper working order of this clock at all.
