Jack Heller mentions two similar passages re a woman compared to a
"German clock." There's also Otter's speech about his wife in Jonson's
EPICOENE 4.2:

She takes herselfe asunder still when she goes to bed, into some twentie
boxes; and about next day noone is put together againe, like a great
Germane clocke: and so comes forth and rings a tedious larum to the
whole house, and then is quiet againe for an houre, but for her
quarters. Have you done me right, gentlemen? She falls upon him and
beates him.
