Put your thinking cap on, because you’re going to need it to decipher the time of The City Clock. Yes, it’s a clock, and not a dollhouse, but you’ll have fun assembling it all the same. So, how do you figure out the time? Think of the windows as vertical rows, and, when certain windows are illuminated, use binary clock technology to know the time. If you know what that means, you can watch the video below and figure it out. If you’re still scratching your head, just watch the video and see if you’re up for making your brain work harder:
“The time is read based on the illuminated windows in the house: each window in the vertical rows corresponds to a number starting from the first floor: 1, 2, 4 and 8. When the numbers in each vertical row are added up, the time is determined based on a digital time setting (military time format). Example: Starting from the left, the first floor window is lit (1), in the second row the second floor is lit (2) equally 12. Third row, the third floor window is lit (4) and the last row, the top floor is lit (8). So the time is 12:48.”
