I saw one of these hanging on the wall at a client's home. I loved it and had to find out more about them...and have one.

The company is called Maples Clock and they make a variety of very cool wall clocks, including a full line of "Gear wall clocks" that are basically cool modern skeleton wall clocks.

The one I got is called the Large Moving-Gear Wall Clock with Glass Cover
Gear wall clock with front glass cover
Clock Size: 8″ x 22″
Clock N.W.: 8 lbs
Battery: 2 x Size D (1.5v)
You can see it at http://www.maplesclock.com/category/wall-clocks/gear-wall-clocks/

It is REALLY impressive. The large red second hand sweeps VERY smoothly like a nice automatic wrist watch. It is a fake automatic and the entire clock is actually run by 2 D-Batteries. There is a pull chain at the very bottom that when pulled activates all of the spinning "gears" to begin moving. The moving gears really have nothing to do with the actual watch working, but still look REALLY cool when they are all moving and turning. So you can have just the clock running all the time, and only activate the moving gears when you have company or want to watch everything move. I have been staring at it all move for the past 1/2 hour, lol

I have not put this on the wall yet, but will later tonight. I wanted to snap a few quick pics and post! I am really happy with the quality of the entire piece. It is very heavy, thick glass, and a silent smooth moving movement.

I'm ordering GCL05-78 for our house.....I even got the green light from my wife for this. I guess clocks are okay and watches still require special permission......

The way I see it, this should NOT get anyone in trouble for coming out of the NBZ. This is not a wrist watch, it is a WALL CLOCK - TOTALLY DIFFERENT, lol. So getting one of these should be totally approved by all spouses as a completely different purchase - hahahahahaha.
