This is a clock that I built over the period of a few months. It was inspired by the work of James Borden. It was a divergence from my regular clock work but very enjoyable to complete. It is spring driven and has a lazy 6 second pendulum. Hope you enjoy. Here is the youtube link

Glad you all like it. This is my largest clock yet. The design only uses 2 gears and an escape wheel. It stands 82” high and the largest gear is 16” in diameter. It is currently on display at the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador Gallery in St. John’s NL Canada.
