At least it appears to be non-destructive.

I am glad that on appearance, it does no harm to the tsuba. And it is an interesting way to display; it has my tentative approval!

Need an option to buy and provide your own tsuba though in my opinion

They do warn you below that it is not non-destructible, though, with no glass to cover the hands.

I like some of the guards - but the prices are a bit out-there! Do the clocks still have the $2.50 Chinese clock movement?

You're probably not buying there for their accuracy, Dale.

 

It looks like they've spaced the hands far enough out from the tsuba, so it's unlikely that they'll rub.

 

If they offered the movement without a tsuba, I'd be tempted to buy one.

I have seen some of these in person when I visited there little museum last year. They look pretty good in the flesh, but were a bit out of my price range

I've seen this guy selling these before.  I think he might do better selling the base and movement as a kit w/o a tsuba in it...

You must use a Tokei tsuba, I would think.
