    "it sits in its own room where clock-lovers can marvel at its gleaming gears, the slowest of which is turning at the glacial pace of one revolution every 25,753 years"

    I bet that one won't need bushed any time soon.

    That 25,753 is the approximate period of the precession of the Earth's axis during which time geographic North points from about where it is now all the way over to Vega as the North star and cycles back. That wheel is needed to keep the Equinoxes correct.
