This is my version of a G&G style clock. First time I attempted this style so I learned some things that will help me on the next batch. It is made of a curly looking QSWO with ebony pegs. Analine dyes, hand rubbed tung oil finish and polished out with black wax. Etched hammered copper face and pendulum. I put a secret compartment in the bottom. There is a button underneath that you push which pops up the false bottom. Hermle mechanical movement. Thanks for looking!

Nice piece. I am also planning a GnG clock but, my intention is to place one of my own (wooden wheel) movements in a GnG style ‘skeleton’ case. I’ll post soon! Max

Beautiful G&G clock. Your customers must have a really hard time picking a clock, they’re all exceptional.

This is my favorite of your clocks. If I had a million dollars I would give it to you for this clock. (maybe not all of it). It is beautiful.
