An old Tower Clockwork

A Swedish Tower clock movement from the year 1764-65.

In the Museum of Technics in Stockholm there is an awesome old clockwork just to the right when you enter the hall with the steam-engines, bicycles and cars. It is made in the little city Stjernsund of the county Dalarna in Sweden, in the year 1764-65. It was moving four pairs of hands on four dials in the tower of the Maria Church in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. It was running in 145 years until the year 1910.
