New Designs, Winners

Here's a great design, won the NAWCC 2009 Craft Contest, First Place and People's Choice Awards.

From Bower Clock Company:

"The Vinion was completed in May 2009 and was awarded People's Choice in the Craft Competition of the National Association of Watch And Clock Collectors 2009 National Convention. Nathan Bowers also was awarded first place in the single train clock category. The intricate spoke design was created by Nathan and each gear was hand pierced using a jeweler's saw. There are over 420 piercings in the clock's gears, weight shell and pulley mechanism.

An Invar 36 pendulum rod and maintaining power wheel add to the accuracy of this 10 day, weight driven clock. The case style, similar to that of the Solyn, was designed by Nathan Bowers and built in conjunction with Pete Norris. It is made from Bubinga wood."
