I got this for my dad for Father's Day a few weeks ago. When I went to visit him last weekend, he had it hung up on his back deck. I asked him how he liked it and he said it's an attractive looking plaque, but the thermostat doesn't work. We were outside in Florida in the heat of the day when the temps were in the mid-90s, and sure enough the thermostat read 79. It was nowhere near 79. Moonphase and time worked fine, but I'm rating it low because I wanted all the elements to work properly (since I assumed they would), and they don't. Overall not happy with the purchase and wouldn't recommend.
This is a very nice clock/thermometer/moon phase piece, unfortunately the thermometer part has stopped working :(
Sharp time and moon clock, keeps temperature accurate.
The time piece hands were loose and crossed so hand would not move. The moon dial didn't work at all. The tide dial worked perfectly. Great item if all parts were functional.
This hangs in the living room so always know the phase of the moon
This was truly the perfect father's day gift. Sleek design, easy to read, and made to withstand weather. Love it!
I bought this for my office. I needed an easy to read/see clock, the temp gauge is nice but I have not been able to adjust it - it seems to read about 5 degrees lower than the thermostat registers, and the moon phase dial is just a fun addition. I thought it would have some method of standing on its' own, however, it's really designed to be hung from a wall. The back is open, though the various mechanisms are covered in water tight enclosures. It is hung by a flange on the temp gauge. The material used to hold everything and that the gauge faces are printed on really looks like slate, and appears to be very sturdy. It is a simple and clean design; my only change would be to create a stand that would allow it to be used on a desk, and to look good doing so.

I love the concept of this piece, I just wished all parts worked as well as the clock. Great design - all things I need to know at a glance. The thermometer needle has not moved since I got it, though temperatures have been yo-yoing all week. The moon phase is moving a bit more quickly than the actual moon, but it still looks cool. If accuracy is desired, this piece is not for you. If you want a cool clock, go for it!

I wanted a moon cycle clock. This clock, thermometer and moon cycle wheel was the perfect answer. It is a simple, clean design, made from recycled stuff in the UK. It was well packaged in an attractive box (perfect for gift giving)but I bought it for myself. Double check the dimensions. It is NOT designed to be read from far away. It is designed to hang, or be propped-up. I have it on a cork board at my. It has 3 separate movements, batteries are required for the clock and moon cycle. Read the simple directions first. Do NOT move the moon cycle by hand. There is also noted a web page where you can see an accurate monthly moon cycle calendar.

I love that this is a three in one clock.
