This is a very accurate timing skeleton clock. Within 8 days, the clock won't miss one minute in every 24 hours, but actually this clock can continuously run for 8 days. The glass frame on this skeleton clock is made of crystal glass for its outstanding clarity. You can read the time clearly from the dial, yet still able to see through the clock. All the gears and parts are made off solid brass, so it can stand for lifetimes. And it stands on a heavy marble base. You can only find the pin wheel escapement on our rare exclusive glass skeleton clock. The pin wheel escapement was invented by Amant of Paris in 1785. The original mystery glass skeleton clock was manufactured around 1835. Now we have brought it back to life exclusively. It has never been available in the market before, and don't settle for other cheap imitations. This clock also features a porcelain dial ring. The complete clock stands 18" tall. This clock is driven by three major gears, which are vertically on the same line. The winding is from the front, and the spring barrel is uniquely mounted together with the glass frame, so the barrel doesn't stand out. Thanks to this smart design, the spring barrel is almost invisible from the side, just like the original one, which you can find on the last photo on our auction. It's a scan picture of Derek Roberts Skeleton Clock, which contains the picture of the original mystery glass skeleton clock. The glass frame is only about 3/4" thin and made of crystal glass, so it has the best clarity. This rare mystery glass skeleton is definitely not want to be missed by any true skeleton clock collectors. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. All winding clocks come with their key. Domestic SHIPPING Method: All domestic shipment will be sent via UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail.
