8 DAY WATER WHEEL INDUSTRIAL BALL BEARING CLOCK Here is the mystery Water Wheel Industrial Ball Bearing Clock you have been waiting from us. It comes with an 8 day movement, not 30 hour or 4 day. It runs fully 8 days and keeps very good time!! This water wheel industrial clock has a big paddle wheel on the right side which hold a a set of small steel ball bearings. The weight of these balls is propelling the clock. Please note the time shows a thin glass dial with Roman numerals. Every 60 seconds, a small ball drops down from the water wheel onto the track where the steel ball rolls to the left side. The bucket catches the ball and move it up one by one. Every 60 seconds, a ball bearing drops from the left bucket on the channel to the waterwheel. Then the bucket drops down and go around to catch another ball bearing. The loops goes on as the clock keeps on running. The buckets chain is made of brass and nicely done, unlike other cheap imitations with ugly soldering spots. The power is received from an 8 day fusee movement inside the wood base, which has beautiful Red Ash veneer. And the clock has a pendulum on the back to regulate the timing. The whole animation of this clock is just like a waterwheel except it's ball bearing "flowing" through channels and there is a clock on the big water wheel. The clock is protected by a glass dome. It measure 17-3/4" tall, 17-3/4" wide, and 8-3/4" deep including the glass dome. The original one is made in 1971 by Peter Bonnert. This is a clock that usually sell over several thousand dollars and the old one costs you an arm and leg. And you probably don't even see anything similar in your local clock store. I'm sure this clock will upscale any clock store and/or make your collection more interesting. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. And make sure you ask them before the auction ends. Please note this clock we offer comes with full working guarantee, unlike other cheap imitation, which the seller claims adjustment needed after delivery. The fact is because of poor craftsmanship, his clock will never work. If you plan to spend a good amount of money on an unique clock, make sure you get one that works.
