Any side or rear-winding clocks so no winding key holes defacing the dial?

    When I was a little boy, I disliked clock dials having winding holes.
    For some reason I wanted the dial perfectly smooth and the numbers intact.

    Thank you.

    Lots of rear wind clocks were made, I've never seen one with a pendulum though.

    The clocks without winding holes in the dial that come to mind and are easily found, would be Chinese bracket clocks and carriage clocks. Some early clocks, with pendulums wind in the back...

    Here's an early Italian bracket clock movement.

    Some early American clocks like iron-fronts have winding holes below the dial, often hidden by the bezel. Allows for front wind without interfering with the dial (or hands).
