I'm fascinated with clocks, especially old complicated pendulum clocks, but can't really afford to own any. I've built a few wooden clock kits, which are kinda cool, but haven't succeeded in getting one to work reliably yet, my mechanical skills being pretty poor, and lacking the necessary patience to get it right.


My fascination clock is part and parcel of my fascination with old machines, and especially Automatic Music Instruments not to mention Athanasius Kircher who famously exhibited a sunflower clock when he first came to Rome.
