Automaton clocks and rotating clocks

rotatingclockWhile the curiosity factor in an Atmos clock is purely cerebral (you may or may not be aware that there is something quite unusual and ingenious about the clock itself), Automaton clocks are visually very striking its mechanically driven figurines that dance or simply appear in windows: humans, animals, angels, mythical creatures, ships etc. These clocks are very expensive and no longer mass-produced, I believe. There are, however, some variations of the theme that you can still find, equally brilliantly performed. For example, the rotating clock shown here is a high quality mechanism that will make an excellent centerpiece in any modern home library.
