9-to-5 is a mechanical maze. The spherical part in the center can be rotated, but only in specific directions. The part has a dial. The frame has the number of a clock. One side is AM, i.e. morning. The other side is PM, i.e. afternoon/evening. The dial starts at 9 AM. The goal is to navigate the maze such that the dial ends up at 5 PM. In that state, the clock can be shifted apart and all four parts can be separated. There is a small cavity inside, just enough room to hide a tiny diamond or so. The theme of the puzzle is the working day, starting at 9 AM and finishing at 5 PM. The 9-to-5 theme is also famous from the Dolly Parton song "Working 9 to 5
