On both sides of the dial visible soldiers of Haller’s Army, on the left a private soldier with a rifle in his right hand, on the right an officer with a larger range of medals on his chest and a saber at the side.
In the lower part of the clock there is an inscription, the patriotic sentence in Polish “Dla Ciebie Ojczyzno” – “For You Homeland” and “Honor Chwili” “The Honor of a Moment”.
