The clock was updated to electricity, probably in the 1950s, including the striking on the hour.
The mechanism was again altered in 2010, when the technology was brought into the 21st Century. Due to needing manual alteration each March and October, and each time the power failed, a computerised system with battery back-up was installed. The clock face does not betray the change.
