Swing Clock

This clock has two pendulums, a smaller one located close to the barrel inside the clock and a larger one extending from the clock body. The two pendulums are linked to each other. The former swings by spring force and cause the larger one to swing at the same rhythm with the bronze statue as a fulcrum.
