The star of this clock is a repurposed vintage early brass resistance box. Resistance boxes allowed the owner to have any number of resistance values without having to have the individual resistors. This one is all brass, solid wood and Bakelite. So If you like hand crafted copper and Bakelite and brass this is the clock for you. The lights that illuminate the brass connectors are all slow cycle RGBs leds just to make it more interesting.
This is a solid heavy clock. This is the second one of these Ive ever built and I believe it turned out better than the first. The darker the room the more intense the lighting becomes. You can choose to turn the lights off if your clock is in a bedroom. If you want a unique cleverly repurposed clock this is it.

When items are made from copper they are not perfect. There are dents and tool marks from either the construction or the original piece of copper plate that was used. These items arent made on a machine, they are hand made. I have recently had a negative experience with a very unreasonable, nitpicking person that this concept was completely unable for him to understand. If you expect a genuine handmade authentic steampunk clock, then you have found the right place.
While it is true that I appreciate feedback good or bad if there is truly a need. If you were going to comment on some flaw in my design or if youre going to offer me 1/3 the price of my products please keep your comments and offers to yourself. I Have built over 600 clocks with very few problems and if you notice my Feedback it is at 100% satisfied customers. I put a lot of thought and heart into my creations.I have a wife if I need correction and trust me she is not shy when there is a need. Back to my normal introduction. Thank you for taking the time to consider my product. Ive had an interesting life full of hobbies like wood carving, blacksmithing and copper work this experience is reflected in my one of a kind creations. I sell a high quality clock designed in Switzerland and have sourced NOS tubes. With the artistic help of my wife staining and beautifying the enclosures we now have a quality product that I would like to own and that I can sell with confidence. You can have a clock hand built in the USA from parts that are decades old but are new and being utilized for the first time in their lives. The clock has a battery backup that keeps time to + or - 1 minute a year. However from my observations I would say it is much more accurate than that. This is coming from a person who is a perfectionist and has CDO (thats OCD but in alphabetical order). That level of obsessive precision goes into the building of your clock.
The design is a 6 digit display that every minute if you wish will display the date for 5 seconds and then scroll back to the time. The only word that works for a description is. All the functions are set with one simple button. There are too many variations to describe here but be assured you can have this clock Your Way.Tube life is lengthened by a blanking mode which you set when you are away and also an Anti Cathode Poisoning Feature that keeps the filaments clean and adds to the overall life of the tubes. Inspired by the SteamPunk movement Ive incorporated elements of copper and brass all handmade and unique to each clock. Each clock is a work of joy.
I find myself watching the clock instead of TV. Never had the passage of time been so fun. If there is a problem contact information is provided do I can quickly and efficiently take care of your needs.If you read my feedback youll see I have happy customers and would certainly like your business as well.
