    [FONT=&quot]CLOCK with Torsion pendulum.[/FONT]
    Self winding clock using change in temperature to wind movement made by Karol Roman-engineer retired.
    Designed as a prototype of a hobby.[FONT=&quot]
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Mr. Roman fascinated by clocks torsion invented himself his own clock with complications as a preface to something more serious.[/FONT] Of course we see here with modeled on structures known and respected in the world. This is just a prototype, not very nicely finished but work,work,work…
    He was already presented at several meetings in Poland.
    Please understand and patch to fix my technical errors in the translation.
    Technical description:[FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    The design, construction and performance of their own.
    Features: -
    The period oscilation balance - 32 seconds
    Uptake free - according to your wishes. Special feature - identical
    rest and boost work on both pallets.
    The cooperation escape whell and latch balance anchor in the range of about +/- 65degrees .
    The amplitude balance - maximum 680 degrees
    The drive from the spring drum. Power reserve ~ 100 days.
    Winding springs - either manually or by using the band tensioning
    changing the saturation vapor pressure of the medium -[/FONT] CH3 CH2 Cl -ethyl chloride. Similary as Atmos ,Reutter - clock power source with ethyl chloride gas.


    [FONT=&quot]- as a function of temperature.
    The scope of work of the winding 17°C to 25°C.
    Adjustment period rotations balance - two-stage by changing the active length
    pendant position and changing the radius of the additional mass relative to the axis
    Balance. The changing mechanism is inside the disc balance.
    Additional features: -
    1.Calendar lunar - ratio ensures the accuracy of the selected phase
    Moon 1 day for about 120 years. Form showing the phases of the moon less
    encountered.
    2.Month and day of the month to read on a rotating ring "annual"
    disposed around the shield. The system includes a variable number of days of February 28 or 29 days.
    Depending on the occurrence of leap years. Theoretically do not need to set
    by the year 2099. Whether a given year is a leap decides Adjustable
    setting discs placed of ~ 11.30.
    3. Days of the week shows the hand of the blade above indicate the phases of the moon.
    4. In the hinterland center of the disc is placed with a dial of 24-hour where you can determine (if anyone has a doubt) the time of day.
    5. At the time of 4.00 th an indicator of power reserve. It is required
    because that energy efficiency in the tension band
    air-conditioned spaces may be insufficient for
    sustain gait mechanism. The energy delivered mechanism
    a significant portion is consumed to drive the "complications".
    6. The hour has two stable positions relative to the hub, distant from each other by 30
    degrees. This allows you to seamlessly change the hour time change
    from winter to summer and vice versa.[/FONT]
    7.Material used por tube winding drum -tombak (~80%Cu + 20% Zn).
    8. protective glass -standart glas tube - for now is a makeshift
    9. Elinvar wire.
    10.[FONT=&quot]
    The energy of stretched spring comes the outer end (crown
    drum) transmission gait. The inner end of the spring cooperates with the
    differential which receives torque from the band tension
    and provides energy executive mechanisms "complications" in the moment
    the demand for it. With this solution, torque track
    gait is as smooth without discrete loads.
    blocade balance, during transport; is carried out by moving the lever
    located at the base. This improves the balance so that the upper
    portion of the axle abuts for the bench and the lower part
    will rest on the mechanism blocade .
    Setting an appropriate, with respect to the vertical position is possible by the clock
    inverting the two legs in the base.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot] the engine[/FONT][FONT=&quot] "thermo" a little too inefficient in air-conditioned rooms - summer on windowsill kneading on gait and complications (for there is no need almost 4 times more energy than the same gait). This is a prototype and should give a little more bellows and gears to reduce the charging spring[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    that's the most interesting clock I've seen for years,congrats and Chapeau!Can You provide a Video? I´d like to see the escapement action!

    Motor and escapement is very similar to Atmos.

    with all respect:No; this escapement is verry much like a verge or crownwheel escapement with additional "draw" to secure the lock and jewelled "flags" while the Atmos employs a jewelled dead beat anchor escapement.
