Magnificent Time Machines
« on: January 28, 2007, 08:11:11 PM »
An extensive site that features tower & skeleton clocks with an emphasis on the workings of the mechanisms.  Many of the pages that describe individual clocks include videos of the movements, including a tourbillon that is mesmerizing.

Also included on this site is a 55 page report on tower clocks mechanics entitled, The Evolution Of Tower Clock Movements And Their Design Over The Past 1000 years..  This paper includes a very thorough discussion of the various escapements and driving mechanisms that have been used in tower clocks and is amply illustrated.

There are no wooden clocks on this site, but I have provided the link for its educational and inspirational value.
