The pictures and video of this wonderfull shop display were send to me as it is owned by Jonathan Frais from Newcastle Upon Tyne in the UK. I never did see one before and that is the reason why I placed it on my site. It is in a wonderfull condition and showns the working of the famous ball bearing roter.
The clock sits on a cream colored alumnium electric moterised base with a platform wich turns 360 hoizontally. It also sits on 2 rollers on the end of the arms wich slowly rotates the clock 360 vertically and winds the mechanism. as it turns horizontally. The winding crown sets the hands. The clock is fully working automatic,fully skeletonised movement, made of Acrylic,steel and brass with massive jewels. It is 12 ” in diameter. It has Made in Switserland stamped into the acrylic plate on the back with a movement refenerence no: 1104 – 4 W 25.
