The solid mahogany case has a moulded mahogany glazed door, which can be locked on the left hand side. The original rectangular saltbox is permanently attached to the front and has doors to the side and the bottom.

The silvered brass dial is attached to the case by two spigots, which pass through holes in the outer rim of the case, which are secured at the back by steady pins. It is signed by the maker in the following manner:
Willm Nicoll London.

The time is indicated by a fine pair of period pierced blued-steel hands on a black Roman chapter ring with Arabic five minute and minute divisions.
The spring-driven, eight-day movement has a going train with fusee, verge escapement and short pendulum.
