The QiYi Clock is a magnetic clock puzzle by popular speedcube manufacturer QiYi. For a long, long time, LingAo and Rubik's dominated the Clock market. It wasnt until 2020 that ShengShou also came along and released a factory magnetised clock.
We now proudly introduce the first QiYi clock to be readily available in the UK. With over 200 individual magnets, the QiYi clock is by far the most complex of all 4. Out of the box it is smooth and fast with a considerable magnetic feel.
Unlike other clocks on the market, the QiYi Clock uses a 'nut and bolt' method of tightening down the outer shell, this allows the QiYi Clock to be tensioned and opened for easy lubrication. It doesn't matter if you love Clock, or hate Clock. Everybody needs one of these in their collection.

It’s a nice puzzle and very easy to handle, rotating softly. Good work.
This puzzle is sick out of the box. Best clock ever! Highly recommended!
I got a request to review this from Kewbz but that's not so easy since it hasn't been delivered yet. It seems that they probably just send out the review requests a week after ordering. I think I'd better check that the puzzle has actually been despatched... I may come back to the review when I can say something about the clock puzzle...
QiYi teased the release of this puzzle for over a year and so you may ask, was it worth the wait?
I can say with absolute certainty that YES is the answer to that question!!
Out of the box the dials of this magic clock turn incredibly well with no adjustment required. The pins are very light and provide a very satisfying click when pushed and held in place by the magnets.
The one single slight criticism is that the pins are perhaps too light and could be caught accidentally mid-solve but I haven’t personally encountered this.
I wouldn’t consider myself a Magic Clock aficionado but I do have a Shengshou Clock and the QiYi Clock is worlds ahead of that in comparison.
At full price, the QiYi Clock is 3 times the price of the Shengshou but I can honestly say that it’s easily worth the extra and so currently on offer at £23.50, it’s an absolute bargain!
If you’re just starting out or you’re a more experienced Clock solver, the QiYi Clock just has to be tried, trust me when I say you won’t be disappointed!
I have nothing to compare it to, but I like the puzzle. It has clicky turning (from all of the magnets probably) and the pins move very easily and don't get stuck (which is what I've heard from the LingAo and ShengShou ones).
Only complaint, not about this individual puzzle but clocks in general, is that the puzzle is extremely easy to solve, even if you don't have a tutorial.
