We created the Automaton Wall Clock series getting inspired not only by old mechanical wrist watches which gear motors seem to us real works of art but mechanical toys which were quite popular among the rich in XVIII in France.

This wall clock belongs to our new Automaton Bite Wall Clock series but the main difference is that here two large gears move smoothly and silently together with the clock mechanism. This beautiful effect of motion doubles because of the mirror back layer. The hand movement is amplified with the rotation of 2 main gears powered by AA batteries. Moreover this Automaton wall clock is much bigger than the other ones.

In horology, a tourbillon (/tʊərˈbɪljən/; French: [tuʁbijɔ̃] “whirlwind”) is an addition to the mechanics of a watch escapement. Developed around 1795 and patented by the French-Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet on June 26, 1801, a tourbillon aims to counter the effects of gravity by mounting the escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage, to negate the effect of gravity when the timepiece (thus the escapement) is stuck in a certain position. By continuously rotating the entire balance wheel/escapement assembly at a slow rate (typically about one revolution per minute), the tourbillon averages out positional errors.
