This style of clock works on a stamp system that is part of the mechanics of the clock. When the birds are shipped to a race, there is a rubber band with a number on it that is placed on the bird's leg. This is called a counter mark. At shipping, all of the clocks are lined up and examined by the race secretary to be sure they are all synchronized and in good working order. At that point, the race secretary seals all of the clocks so that if they are opened or tampered with they will know. When the birds come home from the race they are caught by the owner and the rubber counter mark is taken off the leg and put in a small capsule. The capsule is put into a small opening on the clock and a handle is turned that activates a mechanical stamp that imprints the exact time on a tape.
