Other questions about "Clock"

Q: "They are working around the clock looking into the cause of crash." I think that this sentence needs a conjunction before "looking". Why is not used any conjunction?
A: @megumi22: Hmm. In this case, "and" makes it unnatural, and actually make it sound like "they are working around the clock" and "looking into the cause of the crash" is not related. If anything, maybe putting a comma: "They are working around the clock, looking into the cause of the crash." Or, if you change "looking": "They are working around the clock to look into the cause of the crash." But this would be like 原因を調べるたまに、ずっと仕事しています This one has more emphasis on ために. But normally, we won't use/you don't need a conjunction there. "They are working around the clock ~ing (something)" You can think of this as a set expression. "They are working around the clock building the new school building so that it will be done in time for the new school year." "She is working around the clock trying to organize everything for the important event that is happening tomorrow."
Q: This is a old clock. It's said that the clock is made in the Edo period. That is still moving. Amazing;)
A: Just a few minor errors. "a old" must be changed to "an old" because the word after "a" starts with a vowel. Next, "the clock is made" should be changed to "the clock was made" because it happened in the past. As for the rest, I would suggest saying "It is still moving. Amazing!" or "It is amazing that it's still working." or "Amazing that it still works."
Q: The clock holded move. does this sound natural?
A: You wouldn't use "holded" and "move" next to each other in a sentence. Instead you can say: The clock held in place. or The clock did not move (this one is most common).
