English term or phrase: twelve-rod gong
The hight quality 8-day, triple chiming movement plays Whittinton or Westminster chimes on the quarters and strikes the hour on a twelve-rod gong.

Can you help with "strikes the hour on a twelve-rod gong", please?

...und schlägt die Stunde auf 12 stündiger Basis?

Please help - thanks

neutral  xxxTService: Verständlicher wäre "12-Ton-Schlagwerk", "triple chiming" ist wohl "Dreiklang", Basis bei solchen Uhren ist 12 Stunden. Und warum "hängenden" und "Stäbe" mit "ae" ?
12 hrs
