I added 1.5v pendulum mechanism from old quartz pendulum clock (Source: Thrift store). I added neodymium magnet in clock base, and coil with board in the base. Only AA battery I could not put into base. works very nice, swinging about 20 degrees in each direction. I would recommend to manufacturer to do the same and create new model, with bigger base (to hold AA battery and entire swinging mechanism), maybe entire bigger clock would be better idea, not sure
This is an addition to my professional office and am looking forward to the positive comments. It is a very appealing, eye-catching clock that is such a unique design and balanced beautifully. The only thing that would make it beyond perfect would be if the pendulum would swing independently on its own power. That would be cool!
For a clock collector.
Beautiful and unique gift for my sister who just moved to Denver and started an executive job. It's a sick clock and I might keep it for myself; haven't decided yet.
Very cool design. Unfortunately, the mechanism does not swing on its own. Instead, it swings for a few seconds if you lift it to one side. It requires one AA battery, not two as the website indicates. I kept looking for the compartment for the second battery. I thought maybe that's what propelled the pendulum.
Clock hands flimsy and arrived slightly bent, but not enough to affect function. Wonderful piece to watch. Mesmerizing.
The only thing that could have been better would be if the pendulum swung on its own continuously. Other than than we liked it.
Your information needs to specify that it has no motor, so it's a pendulum for a maximum of 2 minutes.
I absolutely love this clock!! It was totally as advertised. The craftsmanship is obviously top notch and the quality is above reproach. The swinging action is so cool. It's quite the attention grabber, everyone who has seen it comments and asks where I got it!
Gave it to my dad for his office. Very sharp!!
