Description

The Old Clock Tower mini-model by Ugears brings a charming medievalatmosphere into your home or office. This beautiful DIY wooden clock tower modelis a mechanical mechanism in the form of a tower with clock face, moving gears,a moving pendulum, whimsical characters, and a weather vane on top. Scroll thelarge gear to set the hands of the clock, the pendulum, and the weather vane inmotion. The weather vane is a trumpeter holding on to a banner blowing in thewind. For comic effect, a man is suspended from the clock's spinning minutehand, holding on for dear life. Another man climbs a ladder below theclock—perhaps a cleaner or clock repairman? Behind the clock asuspicious-looking figure enters a hidden door—a thief storing his loot in theclock tower, or maybe a hunchback, bringing his lunch back? Invent your ownstory as you spin the gears and watch the mechanism come to life.

Clock towers occupied a central place in the life of medieval and RenaissanceEuropean cities. Invented in the 11th century, clock towers could sound thealarm in case of emergency; call people to worship, weddings or funerals; putthe wealth or importance of a city on public display; and more prosaically, lettownsfolk know what time it was, in an age when most people didn't own a watchor have a clock at home. Clock towers often featured interesting decorativeelements and innovative engineering in the clockworks. Most medieval andRenaissance clock towers have been lost to time, war, or modernization, butthere are still a few that survive in European cities—for example the Torredell'Orologio in Venice's St. Mark's Square, the Prague Astronomical Clockwith its procession of twelve apostles, or the Zytglogge in Bern,Switzerland.
