Clock Face

Photographed in the British Museum London. Made in 1610 all that remains of this clock is the face, internal workings and the chiming mechanism. the actual clock case has long since disappeared. It could show day date and month as well as the time and lunar cycles and could also roughly predict eclipses. The clock maker and country of origin have not been given. (Probably unknown.)
