Chronograph
The Chronograph is a hand made wall or mantel clock constructed from individually designed and engineered components mounted on a beautifully engraved wooden plaque. Minutes are displayed on one dial, whilst gears are employed to drive the intricate hour display. The moving pendulum is reminiscent of early clock designs that featured mercury temperature compensation.
Designed to be reminiscent of Victorian engineering, the Chronograph is a wall or free standing clock. It's constructed from specially designed and engineered components mounted on a beautifully engraved and individually numbered wooden plaque. From its many gears, brass ball chain and metal screws and rivets, to the laser cut hand painted ball bearing and coil spring, the Chronograph employs a range of interesting and visually stunning parts. The combination of metallic finishes make it really eye-catching. The design even includes a pressure cylinder and coiled copper pipe, a necessity on any self respecting steampunk machine! • When hung on a wall, the Chronograph is 23cm wide by 28cm high by 6cm deep.  • If free standing, using the optional wooden stand, it is 29cm wide by 31cm high by 10cm deep. • Each one has its own individually engraved number. • Minutes are read off the right hand dial while the left hand gear indicates hours. • The Chronograph is very accurate as it employs a quartz clock movement. • The clock movement requires a single AA battery. I designed the Chronograph in an effort to produce a much simpler and less involved functioning steampunk machine. It quickly became complicated and involved! I make no apologies though, as I love the aesthetics of the pioneering Victorian machines which relied purely on mechanics and engineering ingenuity to achieve their goals.
