Starting PHASE A
Ideas for design : Sundials, navigation devices, victorian archeology
Cool .. + ... nautic navigation stuff etc ... at the end you come out with a non movement device.
More ideas: gears, and FLYBALL!!!
Yepp.. I think I did not promise too much as the "Brain Rain" also starts upon your heads. too.. much potential to live your creativity... fun rules :) by the way perhaps you find a picture of a 3 axis cardan, a heliosphere or an old gyroscope.. or just google for Euler Hand which is a kinematic model taken out of modern robitics but perhaps it has an older origin.. similar to a gimbal for cameras (the early hollywood equipment.. old cameras......
Much of Brass lenses and fine wood stuff perfectly to use

Ok ... Thought you could build the flyball mechanic somehow from the hands. Miyota also offers retrograde movements but those are quarz. So the torque on the hands is rather weak compared with an analog mechanical watch.
I like the ring shaped hand as a first start, but I'm not sure how the audience will interprete the flyballs
The color scheme is confusing !!
actually the balls are fix spherical supports for the upper ring
