- "It was a beast of a clock, with a big fat brass face orbited by four smaller dials tracking the months and the phases of the moon and the signs of the zodiac and God knew what else, all framed in plain, uncarved dark wood. The words must have been hellishly complex, the eighteenth-century equivalent of a supercomputer."
- ―Description of the Clock Portal
In the 40th Timeline the clock belonged to Christopher Plover and the Chatwin sibilings used it as a portal in their first journey to Fillory. In 2016 Quentin and Julia Wicker saw it in a house where, later when Eliot Waugh was exiled from Fillory by Ember he and Quentin found it with a lot of memorabilia from Fillory and Further series.
