Retro Digital Flip Down Clock, Internal Gear Operated

One of my favorite things in my living room is this cool, retro looking clock.

I received it as a gift for the holidays about a year ago. I did have it in my bedroom originally, but the flipping minutes were a bit loud at night.

It’s one of those things that people ask me about when they come over.

I love the look of this. Is the shiny part metal or plastic?
