The front chasing is in front of a solid brass sheet which in sun light just shines out showing off the detail a real cracking clock. The Movement The movement is an eight day time only; the movement has been fully ultra-sonic cleaned had a new spring fitted, hand polished serviced and oiled so keeping good time over the eight days via the original restored cylinder.
