The Shengshou (Sengso) Magnetic Clock is, based on the traditional Rubiks clock, which is not manufactured anymore. The pins are held into the up/down position with magnets. The side "wheels turns gears to move the clock pointers. The gears are very stiff out of the box, but will loosen with time or you can lubricate this.
The Clock is a two-sided puzzle showing nine clock-like images on each side. The aim of the puzzle is to set all nine clocks to 12 o'clock (straight up) on both sides of the puzzle.
There are four wheels, one at each corner of the puzzle, each allowing the corresponding corner clock to be rotated directly. The corner clocks, unlike the other clocks, turn on both sides simultaneously.
There are also four pins located between the clocks which span both sides of the puzzle. The state of each Pin (in or out) determines whether the adjacent corner clock turns together with the three other adjacent clocks on the front side or on the back side: thus the configuration of the pins determines which sets of clocks can be turned simultaneously by rotating a suitable wheel.
Out of the box this clock doesn't turn well but if you open the case, loosen the screws a bit and apply lube on the inside face it is much better. The pins sometimes get stuck if a clock is in an inbetween position but this is what you'd expect. I got to sub 30 after a couple of days so I guess the clock works fine.
Out of the box, this cube (or should I say this clock), is alright. The pins move fantastically and easily beat a set-up Ling Ao's! However, this is where everything goes downhill, but only slightly. The clock's ridges are extremely tight, almost immobile. This is where set-up comes in. Once following Kit Clement's set-up tutorial I found the clock greatly improved! It is now my main clock. The pins move fantastically and the ridges turn smoothly, however, I still have some occasional lock-ups. In conclusion, I would recommend this clock to anyone looking for a new main or first clock, and even if you dislike it, it's only $13.50! A fantastic price for a great clock.
