A project after my own heart. A “real” mechanical clock that ticks….I despise quartz movements.
I have made several. It is great to hear them chime and once adjusted they are very accurate. A couple are posted in my projects.

Nice work, the centering of the back panel grain with the pendulum bob is great and the eclectic design on the door window is unique.

Be aware that mechanical movements need to be cleaned and oiled (with clock oil) about every 3 to 5 years and they will last a century or more. Clock oil is relatively none volatile so it doesn’t evaporate as quickly as other oils.

Yes, I do love a mechanical clock. My kids don’t understand.. Hell, they have never owned a wrist watch..
It keeps stopping.. think it does need clock oil.. but yes, love the bells ..

As a budding clockmaker, this is a stunning piece of work. I’m using two Hermle movements – a balance wheel and pendulum. This movement is deluxe!
