    Hi Colin,
    Welcome to the message board.
    I have plans for a striking Lantern Clock by J.M. Wild that was published in the 1975 Model Engineer magazine. While this may not be the exact one you are looking for, it may provide some information that will help you figure out the Japanese design. Send me a private message if you think these might be helpful.
