The Tompion exhibit included two tower clock mechanisms. As with all the time pieces in the exhibit, it is fully functional, having undergone a 'Patek Class' restoration... i.e. good as new.

Obviously there are no clock faces or hands. You can't appreciate the mechanism if there is a big dial blocking half your view And the distance the weight travels will probably only give you an hour's operation.

I was told the shipping crate for this was custom made and is 'incredible'...

I'll post some more pics of some of the rest of the exhibit.
