I, too, am curious about the movement. I have been trying to find the small solid brass bezels but all I can find anymore are the plastic bezels which really don’t do justice to a handmade clock with wood such as walnut or cherry.

Great little clock and an interesting looking skeleton/chapter ring dial. I would recommended any one who does not know them to try Meadows and Passmore for clock bits and pieces, and movements – they ship world wide.

Beautifully crafted clock, Gary! I’ve not seen Bubinga in real life. Which picture best depicts the finished color?
PS: I kinda liked the ‘C’ and heart topper!
Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

Sweet clock, Gary. I’m sure it raised some healthy donations for the cause.

Great looking clock! I’m sure it fetched a nice sum at the auction!
