QiYi Magnetic Clock
The QiYi Clock is a magnetic clock by famous speedcube manufacturer QiYi MoFangGe. This exquisite new clock is fully magnetic, featuring 204 small magnets embedded in the gears and 4 large magnets inside the pins. The exterior of this new clock is designed using intricate inlays instead of traditional printing. For the user’s comfort, QiYi rounded the wheels of the clock to be easily usable without scraping the fingers. Fascinatingly, the QiYi Clock can be tensioned by adjusting its four screws. The QiYi Clock can also be easily opened for lubrication and maintenance.

I'm an old cuber (an old geezer at 27) and I missed out on the Rubik's Clock when I first got into speed cubing and twisty puzzles almost half of my life ago. I feel like it was a more widespread puzzle back then but I never got the chance to purchase one. So when I saw this newly released Clock, made with an elegant design including magnets, I knew I had to finally experience this puzzle.
This Clock is beautifully manufactured with a sleek color scheme: black and white and hints of red. My biggest concern when purchasing was not being sure if the plastic bottom was an attached piece, or a separate stand. I really wanted it to be a separate stand, and indeed it is a completely separate piece only used for displaying, such as on a shelf. The movement of the gears is very smooth, with the magnets adding a nice feel and (I'm guessing) improved gear alignment for the push pins in the middle. I noticed a piece of dust under the clear plastic front so I took it apart to see if I could clean it out. All you need is a small Phillips screwdriver. While it did kind of explode all over the place when I separated the inner two frame pieces of black and white, I had a blast putting it all back together, sans piece of dust. The magnets are not loose, they seem to be snug in their places without being able to loosen and fall out.
When I was a kid, anytime I got a new puzzle I would rush to watch the tutorials on youtube. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I wanted to savor the feeling of exploring new puzzle territory completely blind with this new Clock. I scrambled it up and have had a great time trying to learn this puzzle so far. And it can't be ignored that the beautiful build quality lends a lot to the experience! So far, I think this puzzle will never need lube, but if I felt it needed something in the future, I think something like Traxxas 50k would work perfectly.
I recommend this puzzle to old Clock fans and new Clock fans alike!
The clock is amazing. The pins move very smoothly and never get stuck. The dials turn smoothly, too. The dials out of the box were too loose for me to be able to solve with, but you can adjust tension. After some adjustment, I'm able to get 8-10 second solves, like usual. I like that the clock comes with a stand to display it when you aren't solving it. My one dislike is that it is that on the black side it is a little hard to see the the two red lines that represent 12 o'clock. Overall, I would recommend this clock to anyone who want to get a good clock that won't get stuck all the time.
This clock lived up to my expectations and more. It's incredible out of the box with no setup and allowed my to cut my PB by a whole 30 seconds on my first solve
At first I was thinking, oh cool, another clock puzzle to disappoint me. I've been hoping for a good one, that doesn't require excessive modding and for the first time ever this is it. Out of the box I'm demolishing all my records by large amounts and I'm enjoying clock as an event now, this is amazing!
Here are the good things about the puzzle. There are actually magnets in the dials, so there is feedback on every turn you do. This means that you never get any lockups due to the pins not being exactly aligned with the hour markings, because the magnets prevent that from happening. The turning resistance is still there when there are 3 or more pins up (and you're turning the corresponding dials), but compared to other clocks on the market, it is much much less especially doing the turn. Only the force required to get the dial spinning is comparably resistive. When doing long sessions with this clock, you don't get nearly as tired out or exhausted compared to other clocks. This is mostly due to how relatively light the actual turning is over. And finally, out of the box this clock is perfect and ready to go. This is literally unheard of for any other clock.
Some bad things. The sides of the plastic casing isn't flattened out, like the shengshou, so you can get some rolling when setting it down. The turning is a bit too light, so you can overshoot. However, the biggest drawback is that the pins are too light. You can get them to swap sides by just shaking the clock a bit forcefully, and you can accidently push them down during inspection.
In summary, this clock is amazing and you will not regret buying it. Out of the box it is literally lightyears ahead of any other clock, and you don't even need to set it up. The first solve I did out of the box was a 6.96, and I averaged mid 8 with the shengshou. My ranking of all the clocks on the market would go like this: Qiyi > magnetic lingao > shengshou > lingao
