    Uhrenmuseum, Vienna - modem destroyer

    In February my girlfriend and I visited Vienna. The trip was notable for a number of things, mainly the fact that we got engaged, ate lots of Sachertorte and enjoyed the beautiful city of Vienna. We also went to the excellent Uhrenmuseum. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.

    These are called 'Bilderuhr' or picture clock. The clock on the tower is a proper working clock. I've fallen in love with these things :)





    An interesting alarm function:


    Shiney, shiney wheels!





    English pocket watches:

    I was in Vienna last year and wandered into the same museum. I particularly enjoyed the clock run by ball bearings - I wonder if I've got a shot of that one stashed somewhere.

    Nice pictures!
