The Zen Timepiece is an electronic clock (with hourly chime feature), alarm clock, countdown timer, and interval repeating timer in one unit. The real brass gong bowl resting atop the unit is struck to create a long, sustained gong sound that fills the space with positive energy.
Whether using the Timepiece as an alarm or timer, the ringing of the gong follows a progressive sequence, which can be interrupted by pressing the button to the right of the digital display. The Timepiece runs on two C-cell batteries (not included), so you need not worry about a power failure interrupting the alarm clock. Depressing the button next to the display will briefly light the display so you can check the time. All the remaing function buttons are located on the front of the unit for convenience.
Please Note: This item ships to the U.S. and U.S. Territories Only. Fixed Shipping charge is via US Postal Service Priority Mail.
