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
• 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.
