Automaton Twinkle Wall Clock
Gentle colors of this unique handcrafted wooden wall clock will make a perfect match for a modern nursery design. The clock will satisfy the parent's need of telling the time and the child's fancy of tiny stars looking down from the night sky. A perfect baby shower gift that can be personalized with a name.
We created the Automaton Wall Clock series getting inspired not only by old mechanical wrist watches which gear motors seem to us real works of art but mechanical toys which were quite popular among the rich in XVIII in France.
This wall clock belongs to our new Automaton Wall Clock series but the main difference is that here all the stars move smoothly and silently together with the clock mechanism. The stars are powered by 4 AA batteries.
An automaton (pronunciation: /ɔːˈtɒmətən/)(plural: automata or automatons) is a self-operating machine, or a machine or control mechanism designed to follow automatically a predetermined sequence of operations, or respond to predetermined instructions. Some automata, such as bellstrikers in mechanical clocks, are designed to give the illusion to the casual observer that they are operating under their own power.
Our wooden clock is made of many layers of Baltic birch, painted wood stain and acrylics.
