"It's gold-plated. It looks like a large clock cog."
The Gold Cogwheel is a key item that can be found in Resident Evil 2.
This cogwheel is used in the Gear Room in order to open a secret panel in the wall. In Claire's scenario the panel reveals one of the halves of the Jaguar Stone, in Leon's scenario it reveals the Knight Plug and a passage to a hallway in the basement that can only be used in that direction.
