Mystery Clock

Or what time is it really?

This five foot pedestal clock came with the house I am sitting here in Melaque. One of the last things the owner said as she walked out the door was - "you get the puzzle of setting this clock".

Since I really don't care what time it is the challenge means very little except I keep seeing this not inexpensive time piece sitting around waiting for 'day light savings time' to either come or go.

This is neither a plug-in or solar clock .. so I assume batteries. How will we ever re-start time if those batteries go. Why do people buy things they have no idea how they work

That clock is correct twice a day ;-) Pull the battery and replace when one of those times is correct - no messing with hands or dials.

Correct twice a day if it's stopped but right now it's running on winter time.

There are a couple of screws at the bottom of the face but you'd think a hinge on the top or somewhere.

Oh well ... like Chicago said - "Does anyone really care what time it is?"

I have asked that last question in the context of many a failing romance.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
