Skeleton Clock Collection
The skeleton clocks shown exhibit some unusual feature; an interesting mechanical
design, rare or complex escapement, mechanism, remontoire or frame design. The following
adapted quote nicely sums up my fascination with skeleton clocks and clocks in general
where one can see the mechanical movement. "A well made skeleton clock is
a joy to behold - an elegant confection of brass and steel, wood, marble and glass, its'
mechanicals visible inside its' crystal case, its' clockwork heart ticking away happily as
it takes the pulse of the day."1
