  • The time has come! For years, we've been hearing the same question again and again from our loyal customers: "Can Ugears create a working clock model kit, one that actually keeps accurate time?" A working mechanical wooden clock has long been our #1 "most-requested" new design
  • Your dream has also been our dream, and our team of dedicated Ugears engineers and designers has been working hard to bring this shared dream into reality. Finally, the wait is over. Ugears is proud to present the Aero Clock, a fully-functioning DIY wall clock with pendulum
  • The Ugears Clock is an actual working clock that you can build yourself, mount to a wall, wind up, then watch as the seconds, minutes, and hours tick by
  • It is a lovely piece of precise engineering that reveals the workings of a weighted pendulum clock to builders and viewers alike
  • Like all Ugears models, it also has that extra touch of whimsy, to captivate and charm our growing legion of fans
  • This simple-yet-elegant Ugears clock is driven by the force of gravity pulling down a weighted bag (you can fill the bag with sand or salt). Raise the bag on its pulleys to wind the clock. As the weight slowly descends, it rotates a drive gear, which then rotates an escape wheel through a reducer
  • The clock features an adjustable weighted pendulum which interacts with the escape wheel through the steady tick-tock of the anchor mechanism
  • You can adjust the clock's ticking action to the second, by sliding the pendulum's top and bottom weights, the reducer also transmits rotation to an hour disc and a minute disc
  • One of the interesting features of our Aero Clock is that time is not read with rotating hands on a clock face, but rather a fixed pointer indicates time on the slowly-rotating, numbered hour and minute discs
  • Moreover, these discs rotate counterclockwise—did you know that before standardization, some clocks moved clockwise while others moved counterclockwise?
  • Did you know the problem of calculating longitude, critical to accurate navigation at sea, was solved with a clock?
  • In the role of "cuckoo” the Ugears Aero Clock features a model hot air balloon, The suspended balloon rapidly descends when the hour strikes, then slowly rises again over the course of the next hour
  • We love this wooden model clock's steampunk sensibility and spirit of adventure, and we think you will too! Imagine yourself a discoverer of new horizons and a conqueror of the four winds
  • You will learn the basic principles behind clockworks, how the steadying influence of a swinging pendulum operates through a rocking anchor, locking and unlocking the gears on an escapement one second at a time, thereby regulating the (slow) descent of a weight as it drives both power gears and timekeeping gears
  • This beautiful and functional wooden wall clock model is for horologists, for hobbyists, for explorers, for creatives and romantics of every stripe, anyone who is ready for new challenges and ready to take risks
  • Released at a moment when the world seems to have slowed down, the Ugears Aero Clock, a wooden wall clock with pendulum that you build yourself, is both timeful and timeless in its simple elegance
  • When you work together to assemble this DIY wooden clock model kit, you will experience the satisfaction of building something together, and not just any model, but an actual functioning timepiece
  • The Ugears Aero Clock with pendulum is a new and exciting addition to the Ugears collection of fascinating mechanical models, 3D puzzles, game accessories, wooden puzzle boxes, children's toys and education STEM Lab model kits
