On hearing the beautiful music of Chinese lute, we usually describe it as “pearls falling into a jade plate”, and now the bead clock can also remind us of that famous Chinese poem. When the clock works, two beads in different sizes will then brighten up to indicate the time. Be careful not to mix up the two beads! The bigger bead in the outer circle stands for the hour hand and the smaller one in the inner circle symbolizes the minute hand.
