Here is the 7th clock in my gallery of clocks, M7 – ‘Brown Sugar.’ I made this one for a retired Xerox exec who wanted a special gift to celebrate his 40th wedding anniversary. He was inspired to pursue this project after seeing my M3 clock on display at Rochester Museum and Science Center, Rochester, NY. It is constructed entirely of hardwoods including – Peruvian Walnut (gears), American Walnut, Figured/Birdseye Maple, Holly and ebony details and Jatoba. It stands about 70” and runs for two days on a single wind. It is accurate to within +/- 2 mins/wk. But, I believe it will settle in after a few months in it’s current home and, with consistent humidity and temps, will be more accurate.
