Do you know what this is?

I didn't know what it was until I read the description, but after I did I loved it even more.

"This is a genuine horologic masterpiece, a completely original design by the builder, 100% handmade from wood and brass right here in the studio! No batteries! No motor! The clock is powered by GRAVITY, imagine that! The time is read-out by noting the position of the solid brass numerals on the time ring as it rotates past the ebony cursor at the top of the clock."

This kind of breathtakingly beautiful braininess is what makes me get up each day. Some day, when I have a fabulous, sun-filled house of my own, this thing is going on the wall. See this & other old-world marvels at Chase Studio.
