This is a nice clock,I do not think it looks like metal I guess others do. The color is ruby red not at all fire engine red. Over all I really like it good for using in kitchen will be easy to clean. Glad I ordered it.
Overall, i really like the clock. It looks great, but it's just a thin plastic surround. I had assumed it would be a bit more "sturdy" feeling than that. All in all, it looks great, works well, and it's just going on the wall so the material is not a huge deal.
My assumption was that this clock was metal, but it's actually plastic. I like that the second hand kind of moves fluidly as opposed to a tick movement. Overall, it is aesthetically what I wanted and if it keeps time like it should, I will be pleased.
