This rare clock model features this triple chime feature and automated Planisphaerium dial . Also to add is the clock benefits from a day and date calendar. All of the Planetarium automations run in accordance with the movement with various moon phase and sun dials, zodiac signs and symbols. See movie..Also months of the year and to add 17 world cities around the outside so you can see the times in different cities with the hand locator to centre. The dial has a selection lever on the front right hand side of the dial to choose for any one of the 3 different chimes to include Westminster, Whittington & St MichaelsAlso a silent option, however I cannot imagine why anyone would want to turn off the sound from this (see movie).Small scratch on the dial just above to the left of the day dial. The 8 day movement has a balance wheel escapement and is striking on 8 rods in total. The quarter chiming musical chimes every quarter of an hour on 8/4 rods and the hourly strike on 3 rods on the hour after the musical chimes have finished playing. When chiming at half the hour in Whittington & St Michaels mode the last hammer nearest the door to hit the rod sticks just before it is due to drop, and then drops on the rod around 5 mins later on it's own just before the next chime is due at a quarter to the hour. It does not do this when it is in Westminster mode. I have been told that it may be dirt that makes it stick, with the slightest touch with your finger it then drops.. This is simply down to dirt, wear or a simple adjustment with the right equipment or a local clock maker should you not be familiar who can also clean and service it at the same time..
