Whole Clock Moves As Pendulum (May, 1935)

Whole Clock Moves As Pendulum

AN UNIQUE eight-day clock which is about three feet high and swings bodily to act as its own pendulum has been built in the workshop of an Arkansas man.

An escapement wire running from the central case is attached to a wire fork suspended from the window ledge of the shop. The swinging of the clock causes the escapement to tick one notch with each swing. Each swing is about an inch and a quarter.
