I had this clock on my wedding registry and receieved it as a gift at my bridal shower. I loved the look of it. It is exactly as the picture shows. However, mine never kept time from the very beginning. I returned the clock, and searched for reviews online... which all seem to be good. So maybe mine was a lemon? Since I have the hole in the wall already for this clock, I'm going to try it again. Fingers crossed the new one will keep time.
