|This is the top of the pendulum. It also extends down to the floor below.|
|A set of weights provide the power to
the clock. The gears here form the heart of the
timekeeping portion of the clock. The small 9-inch clock
is used to set the larger clock because you cannot see
the hands from the inside.
The clock is still wound manually, though a small electric motor is used to make the task a little less arduous.
|At the top of the clock is the crown gear. This gear, in turn, drives the four gears connected to each of the four faces of the clock.|
