Clock Art

Clock wheels and gears are a work of art.  Once upon a service call on a Ridgway modern grandfather clock.  The customer stated the clock would stop at 12:30.  Initially on the phone was a little puzzling.  Upon arrival, noticed the problem right away.  The seconds indicator hand was rubbing on the hour hand.  This condition only comes in contact with each other when the hour hand would be pointing at the "12".  Here are 3 images of this condition.  As you can see the hands are touching. 

Another interesting note is the beauty of the hands in relation to themselves and the clock face.
