John MacArthur, Regulator Clock #3

The regulator clock uses a pendulum as the time keeping element. Certified as a master journeyman clockmaker this MacArthur contemporary pendulum clock is expertly crafted of oak and steel. The front is a curved glass case encompassing the entire work. The roman numerated clock face is at the top, the weights at the left and the pendulum descends for 35 inches. The hand-fabricated mechanisms are exquisitely crafted, each requiring 1000 hours to make. The clock is mounted to the wall.
