The pendulum swings, releasing the escapement. Stored energy is transmitted through the gears. The hands move forward.
The pendulum returns, the mechanism shifts. The clock moves, a physical manifestation of the passage of time.
The modern world is regulated by this simple sound. A sound reaching back to the first mechanical clocks in the 13th century.
Each tick is uniquely human. It expresses a yearning to bring order to the chaotic passage of events. An attempt to break the unfathomable eons into moments small enough to be understood.

I found the stl files to 3D print this clock.
Fine, we will wait when printed and assembled.
On the other hand, in an old-fashing pocket watches ( Rosskoph ) you Always find a romain digit 4 ( IV ) on emailed cadrans as ( IIII )
This is realy an option for this clock !
I'v tried to change it with Shetchup to 'Face_Back_3_to_5_IIII.stl' but without result.
Has anyone an idea or suggestions ?
To be continued ...
I will devellop a half- an hour 'bel' as an extension to this clock.
BELGIUM ... and mechanical clock collector ...
Aside from the wood frame pieces, you can pretty much get the hardware needed from a regular (metric) hardware store. It's mostly screws and nuts. The bearings I used are 623ZZ from vxb.com. They are 3mm ID X 10mm OD X 4mm wide. The list of kit parts is found on the assembly page http://www.makerbot.com/projec...
(Oh, and I recommend going through the assembly instructions carefully to figure out what hardware is needed. For example, if you don't have the lasercut wood pieces, you don't need all 17 of the M3 screws and nuts to put them together...)
