Enjoy the Rhythmic Motion of The Grasshopper, by Comitti of London at The Clock Man

This special clock is a tribute to the world's first ship's clock, originally designed by John Harrison in the 18th century. Most clocks will not run on a boat due to the rocking motion created by waves. This inhibited sea captains from calculating their longitude (the long lines running north and south on the globe) accurately. This created many navigational problems and the British parliament offered a reward of £20,000 for anyone who could come up with a clock that ran on a ship.  The clock you see in the video below is a beautiful, skeletonized ship's clock that has a wonderful rhythmic motion.  Customers often stare at the simple beauty of this piece while they are waiting for simple repairs to be finished.
