The object of the puzzle is to move the gold metal arrowhead at bottom through the rings to end up at the inner horizontal slot at the center.
Note that there 5 rings. There are metal bars that blocks passage within the rings and rotating gold bars that throws the arrowhead back to the start.
I find that the easiest way for me is to use point and click within the rings rather than keyboard or arrows at bottom right.
Position the arrowhead at the open spot at bottom.
Move the arrowhead using left click on the place you want it to go.
Click on next ring when the rotating bar just passed. Time each click on the next subsequent rings when the rotating bars are far from where you click.
At the 4th inner ring or the one second to the innermost, position the arrowhead close to the blocking bar at right so that you can get to the inner ring as close as possible to the horizontal slot at center. Then move the arrowhead inside the slit. Good luck.

Dial I = The progression of the numbers is: 1 + 2 = 3 2 + 3 = 5 3 + 5 = 8.
Turn dial 1 to 8.
Dial II = Add the left column and the sum is 9. Add the middle column and the sum is 9. If the blank third number of the right column is 1 the sum will be 9.
Turn dial 2 to1.
Dial III = Going on a spiral starting at 21 the difference between 21 and 18 is -3 18 and 16 is -2 16 and 15 is -1 15 and 12 is -3 (starts over) 12 and 10 is -2 10 and 9 is -1 and 9 and 6 is -3 again. So it is a repeated -3, -2 and -1 pattern. By the progression, the next number following 6 should be 4 having a difference of -2. (Thanks Rushes!)
Turn dial 3 to 4.
Dial IV = The difference between 10, 8 and 6 is 2 the difference between 3, 7 and 11 is 4. The only available progression with a difference on the bottom row is 1 so the middle blank number is 3.
Turn dial 4 to 3.
