I had to stick this somewhere far away from anywhere I sit, or sleep.
It's not the ticking, but it's the constant, irregular plastic gears rolling (not ticking, but rolling) sound that usually will drive anybody crazy.
Also, whenever it gets to 53 minutes or so, it flips the hour time to the next hour, which really confused me for a while, until I figured out that it was happening. I'm pretty sure there is a way to control this. There are some mechanical stop element rod on hour flip side that I'm sure there is a way to adjust this. I just don't know how.
I put this on my kitchen and it looks amazing. So, if this thing was quiet, I'm pretty sure they can charge twice as much, and I would probably pay more for it. It's really an awesome way to show the time. Very unique and adds interest to wherever you put it.
EDIT: I'm adding one more star, because:
1. my cat knocked this down to a hard marble floor and all of the pieces with numbers came off. I thought that was it, but everything works still, and it was easy to put the numbers back on.
2. I finally figured out what that little piece of metal hook was. That hook is there to hold the hour flip, so it synchronize with the minute flips. Now the hours don't flip until after 59 minutes.
However, it's still loud. It's not ticking, it's not clicking, but it's this constant, uncoordinated irritable sound.
It's not a very pleasing sound.
the prior reviews about the noise caused by the flip down numbers and gears is true. you can hear every time the minute changes. you can also hear the gears grinding inside the clock. these are all non-issues for me.
it uses a 1D battery. time adjustment is located on the right side --on the minute side of the clock--and its pretty easy to adjust.
+Big numbers, can read from across the room
+I can't read the other kind of clock so I love the numbers, lol ;)
-Kind of cheap materials, the metal is actually just metal-painted plastic, but you can only tell that if you're holding it, so I don't care too much about that.
-Some people might find the noise a negative, but we've never minded it, and we keep it right in our living/ dining room, where we always are. It's a constant, fast ticking, so you have to decide if you would go crazy with that or not. There have been a few times when I noticed it; I put on some music and it was fine.
The noise of the gears is a bit grating but tolerable amongst the work place din - definitely wouldn't be able to tolerate at the bedside.
My only complaint is that it runs quite loud. There's a constant humming, which can be annoying in a quiet room and the smack is a little loud. Other then that it's a great looking clock that I get many compliments on.
It works fine, looks fine, but I would have preferred the one I thought I was getting.
