Amazing Clockwork Workmanship...

Recommended Posts

Skip's topic, "Amazing Workmanship!", blew me away. So, when I saw this video, I knew it belonged next to his.

Enjoy!

Thanks for posting Tony :goodpost: , it is amazing what craftsmen were able to do back in that time, as mentioned in the video we are just now in the last 10 to 20 years able to replicate some of what was done back then, a lost art that for sure.

Thanks Skip.

It's amazing how, using 72 cams, this watchmaker was able to get this mechanism to draw pictures and write poems, in script writing no less!

Translating all those movements into those cams must have taken years.
