I purchased this clock as a gift last Christmas. The woodwork is very nice and the clock is just the right size. I'm glad I went with the 7 day version, although the weights are heavy it is more convenient to only reset them once a week as opposed to daily. It took a few days to get the timing right. The leaf on the pendulum has to be moved up and down to get the right timing and the bottom of the box has to be placed right so there is proper balance for the pendulum. You will notice there are two "pins" on the bottom corners to help keep the clock in place.
The recipient has been very pleased with the clock and it looks great. It does sound on the hour with the number of the hour and gives a single sound on the half hour. This is all mechanical.
I was in Germany a few days ago and wanted a clock I found that they were asking a bit more than I wanted to pay then i would have it shipped and worry about damage/Return issues. This was easy adn i had it next day in perfect condition, I also knew that Amazon would back me if there was a problem.
This was a Christmas gift for our daughter. She was very excited about receiving it. The clock she was replacing was the same exact style clock bought by my mom & dad over 50 or 60 years ago. She has it up and is extremely happy with it. Quoting her, "I would highly recommend it." J.H. St. Charles, Mo.
