Pièce unique

This model was first made by an Englishman, William Strutt, about 1830, and it has a number of interesting and extremely unusual features not found in other clocks. Its 8-day run, spring driven train is epicyclic (planetary gearing) and the motion work is based on the Ferguson Mechanical Paradox instead of the normal 12 to 1 gear train. This allows individual setting of the hands.


Clock is made from brass and is partially rhodium plated.

In personal collection.
