The last hour struck can be repeated by pulling the cord at the bottom of the case. The alarm can be activated by a pull winding a small spring and setting it by the alarm pointer.

The brass case is surmounted by urn finials and a handle on top of the bell. The sides and back has doors. the whole is raised on turned feet.
