Powered by a 'Magic' Motor
This timepiece was a Meccano 'first'. By the ingenious use of a single Meccano 'Magic' clockwork motor in conjunction with a fusee and spring barrel to compensate for the motor's weakening output as it unwinds, the clock runs for at least 24 hours on a single winding, and for 30 when the passing strike is turned off.
The elegant, ornate framework is based on a John Wilding design and shows the inner workings of the clock mechanism.
20 pages including 18 colour photographs and parts list, plus a separately-stapled booklet of isometric diagrams.
