This clock should be useful project for anyone who has made at least one clock or for a model engineer who is considering making a clock as a diversion from models. It has been designed to meet the following criteria.  Skeleton construction with a clearly visible and eye catching escapement . Use of a relatively short compound pendulum to give a stately periodic beat of 1.1/2 seconds. Clean uncluttered lines. A maximum height of 12". A duration of 8 days. All components to be capable of manufacture on a Myford ML10 or similar lathe. The escapement and compound pendulum are front mounted for maximum effect and to allow one to clearly how a gravity escapement works. The gravity escapement has been inverted from its normal layout to reduce the overall height of the clock when using a compound pendulum. The clock was well received when it was displayed on Crafts for Four Seasons stand at The 1997 Harrogate Show.
