The white enamel dial of the clock is ornamented with Arabic hour numerals, encircled with a plain chapter ring with minute markers and fitted with scrolling gilt metal hands.

The clock movement is fitted with an incorporated hinged winding key, featuring a shaped handle with lobed fingerpieces.
The door has a rounded thumbpiece to facilitate opening.
