It's Victorian. It's mechanical. It's anachronistic for the building it will be placed in.

But who cares. It's good!

The clock tower was damaged by lightning during an electrical storm on November 12, 1955, permanently stopping the clock at 10:04 pm. Local scientist Dr. Emmit Brown was performing weather experiments in the clock tower at the time.
