I am looking for a type of clock that I don't know the name of. Instead of
a pendulum or spring movement it has a rod coming out of the top with a ball
and string on it, about 3 inches or so are two rods on each side of the
center rod, the center rod pivots causing the ball and string to wrap around
the outside rods and then unwrap , swing around and wrap around the rod on
the other side, unwrap and repeat the operation to control the movement of
the clock. does anyone know what this type of movement is called??? Can't
find anything on the web about it, but have seen the clocks in action about
30 years ago in Europe, they kept lousy time but were fun to watch.
I remember seeing the clock you described in a clock shop many years ago and
would watch it with amazement. It is called an Ignatz Pendulum Clock and
you can see it here.
