A mundane clock that doesn’t even tell time, in fact, it really wasn’t even meant to keep correct time. This is a Holovar clock, made in Germany especially for jewelry store window displays. The pendulum mechanism is how the clock kept time, so depending on the length of the cord and how many spirals around the post was how long the second was. Pretty to see and watch the movement, but never accurate.
I originally bought this clock in Germany on my first International trip but lost it in a custody battle. After many, many years and missing it badly, I finally found its twin on eBay.
