This is a fully functioning 3D printed grandfather clock. Using mainly 3D printed parts, this clock was specifically engineered to be assembled in minutes, and can run for over 6 days on a single winding. With a little bit of tuning, it can accurate keep time with that classic tick-tock sound.
The video showing how easily this clock can be assembled is available here
