On the black body of the cast-shaped form, a white markup of clocks and minutes has been made.
At one end, the “abdomen” serving to display the time is the head in which the stroke controller is located with the oscillating balance wheel. Eight segic feet are attached to the abdomen on hinge fasteners. At the other end there is a clockwork drum, the energy of which leads to a movement mechanism with an eight-day stroke. Feet can be deployed to put ARACHNOPHOBIA on the table or, on the contrary, pull it out if the clock is designed for the wall. Front legs are also drawn forward, while six others remain in a standing position – so that the spider is measured in the threatening rack.
