NEW MECHANICAL TIMEPIECES

2017-2018



W1 is a large-scale timepiece that hangs 5' x 3.5' on the wall. Made from the client's choice among local hardwoods & several exotics, this piece will swing in seeming slow motion, gently ticking only once every two seconds.

Of the three that will be built, one edition of W1 remains available.

 


Glass-housed, L1 is a weight-driven mechanical table clock that features a lunar phase complication, indicating the current phase of the moon via a rotating globe made from ebony & holly. A brass bell gently chimes the full moon each month. 

Of the five that will be built, one edition of L1 remains available.

 


B1 is a hardwood timepiece built in homage to the work of Martin Burgess, the primary motive force behind Clock B. This piece will feature a Harrison remontoire, maintaining power, grasshopper escapement, & several giant hardwood gears with Lignum Vitae teeth.

Of the two that will be built, one edition of B1 remains available.
