A clock I gave to my father many years ago. Its unusual and there is quite a following of people who collect these things. Looking at the clock the time is 9:53

I used to have one of those when I was younger. The one I had, had an arm that rotated around once a minute, picking up a ball from the supply chute at the bottom and delivering it to the top. I can't tell if this one has the arm or uses a different delivery mechanism to move the balls to the top.

Nice shot of a most unusual (and noisy) clock.

Yes Cal, there is a swinging arm which carries a ball to the shute once every minute.

I have seen these and thought about where I might find one to shoot for this challenge (obviously, I didn't find one, lol). Nice shot, Bynx. Definitely an interesting timepiece.

Nice shot of the clock, Bynx!!

I have seen this type in stores before and was just amazed by them. I just could not justify buying one for myself.

If I remember correctly Mugmar the clock was very inexpensive and I had to put it together from a kit.
