Wooden Clockpunk Pocketwatch

Although this was not constructed as an example of Clockpunk but it is nonetheless a good example of Clockpunk. The Clock was constructed in 1900 in Russia and is made entirely of wood. Consider the excerpt from the Watchismo blog (found via BoingBoing).

The case, the hands, and the gears, all from a tree – a living material that also marks time with it’s rings – natures own clock and a profound medium for a watch.

    is there any indication that at any time it actually worked, or was even intended to work?

    I would consider robbing a bank to get the money to buy this.

    (BTW, you misspelled “wooden” in your heading.)

    This is a fascinating blog. Who are you?

    dinogrinder: Actually Da Vinci has a lot of sketches of inventions which were never built in his lifetime but were built hundreds of years later and these actually worked!

    Janice: lol Thanks for your catching this. I will fix the link now. Thanks! I am a sci-fi fan.
