There was a crowd of us all waiting for the 12 o'clock gong and the procession of figurers. The time was well past 12 o'clock before it chimed/gonged with some accompanying music. However there was NO procession of figures which was a little disappointing as...More

Fascinating clock, so pleased to see it was working accurately. It worked all day and was good to work out when the characters were gong to change.
