The Shitan wood case has finely cut moldings, engraved fabric lined frets, front and rear lift-out doors and a decorative ormolu handle.
The rotating dial has a turned sunken center, an elaborately fretted steel-cut hand and an engraved, silvered chapter ring with the traditional characters representing two sets of 9-4. Below the dial are the apertures for the sexagenarian calendar and above is a third aperture that shows one of two characters manually chosen by flicking a small pin side to side.
The one-day movement has turned pillars, elaborate floral engraved circular plates, a brass balance wheel, a fusee on the time side, a going barrel on the strike, a traditional Japanese countwheel and strikes by torsioned hammer on a bell mounted above. The whole sits upon a Shitan wood base with applied moldings and a drawer to keep the key.
