2. Description
The clock has a small spring driven lever movement which is housed in a circular metal case, 2.5in. in diameter and 1in. in depth.  It is fitted with a projecting lever for the purpose of starting, stopping and resetting.  The action of resetting the hands of the clock rewinds the spring.  The space required for fitting the clock is 3.25in. by 2in. by 1.5in. approximately.
