Visual Description : Gold-coloured metal French Atlas clock with a white-coloured face and an attached rectangular glass case. The front top edge of the case has a small metal latch that, if pulled down vertically, allows for the removal of the front section of glass. The internal mechanical components of the clock are not covered or encased. The clock itself is circular in overall shape and has three legs that connect to the base. The bottom front of the base contains a small circular glass compartment with fluid and an air bubble. It appears to be a leveling tool. The bottom of the base has three legs with black rubber ends, two of which are adjustable for height. At the very tip of the clock is a thin hair-like strand of metal connected to a meter or gauge mechanism with a plus and minus sign. The strand touches the top interior of the glass case. It is not certain what this mechanism measures.
