The circular aperture shows an exquisite enamel painting of Adam and Eve under the apple tree; the serpent in the cut-out circles the couple once every second. To the left, a window elaborately ornamented with gold tendrils reveals the three-armed brass balance. The white hour dial is positioned in the lower part of the watch and is flanked by two graceful ladies with flower baskets.
