Most 400 day clocks have a round brass base that is polished and lacquered.
Some nickel-plated 400 day clocks were made. These are uncommon, and I see only 1 or 2 of these per year in my repair shop.
I recently repaired a copper plated Schatz 400 day clock! It is the only one I have ever seen.
The photos above show 3 examples for comparison: a Kundo standard with nickel finish (uncommon), a Schatz standard with copper plated finish (rare), and a Kundo standard with brass base (the most common 400 day clock)
