silver orlog
Look: Closed: The silver orlog, now closed, is a fine mechanism about the shape and size of a large apple, with a hinged metal cover that protects the works inside. On its burnished front cover is an allegorical engraving of Time's Chariot.

On the back you notice instructions for its use.
Open (running): The orlog's round face has words and figures around the edge, from "Midnight" at the top, then the numbers 1 to 11 down the right side to "Noon" at the bottom, and 1 to 11 ascending on the left.
The hand on the orlog is between [hour1] and [hour2], [before/after] the meridian.
Open (not running): It appears the orlog has stopped.
Read: You turn the orlog over and read:

Congratulations on your purchase of a precision Perobler
timepiece. For best service, follow this simple advice:
Be sure to wind it regularly by turning the key with the
orlog or pendant in hand. If it should stop running, it
can be restarted and reset by winding it.
Always close the cover before putting it away to protect
its delicate mechanism. For all repairs, don't trust to
luck: Perobler's of Mer'Kresh now offers courteous, fast
and trustworthy repair service.
