Superb, Ferg! I love that ormolu clock with the dragon feet and what looks like a lovely little cartouche of Cupid and Psyche below the dial!

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Excellent stuff Ferg. I agree with AVO...a wonderful looking clock. The longer I work on these things the more I find myself attracted to the more elegant, dare I say gaudy designs.
