There is movement of a secondary figure on the pendulum as it moves, very neat.Not sure if this is pre 1980. I think it's vintage.
Wear and imperfections from age, use, and being moved. Sold as decorative. However, it did run for more than 24 hours and was chiming today. It chimed twice at 2 pm and seems to function properly. However, I have not tested it beyond these observations.
