    I just thought of showing this thread again one of my previous project. This Fernwood Garden in Quezon City, Philippines whose main business is to host wedding ceremonies. I have installed a 3ft diameter clock in their mini bell tower as you can see in the pictures. Thank you for seeing.

    What type of movement does it have? Is it modern?

    Yes it's modern, and my own design. All steel and brass movement with a stepper motor controlled by a microcontroller using a quartz oscillator that I timed to vibrate in a specific frequency to have a rate of +2 minutes per year. I made the minute hand to move every one minute. It is the same movement Ive been using in my previous projects that I have posted here before. It has also a back up power supply that do not affect the chain division of the IC during power failure switching so it maintain almost perfect time through out the year. Thank you for asking.

    Le arsi you are quite skilled in these tower clocks.You could probably do well to make a few clocks and towers around here in some of the cities in Canada.
