Behind the door, the time displays on a silvered and engraved chapter ring with Roman hour markers, Arabic minute markers, and serpentine hands. The dial center displays subsidiary seconds and month dials as well as decorative scroll engravings. Cast brass spandrels frame the dial nicely. A delightful handpainted moon phase dial is located in the arch.
