I'm coming back to this project after a rather long break so decided to start a new Blog as this is a new start. The design spec is rather different. No moon dial and no perpetual calendar as that proved too cluttered. I hope to have a striking mechanism. Also, I'm hoping to arrange something to make the clock keep good time. As before I shall have automatic winding but automatic precise time-keeping would be nice. I don't think that's cheating as this is already quite far away from a standard longcase clock.
