Time Talk - The Engle Clock
We are presenting our bi-monthly TimeTalk presentation at the National Watch & Clock Museum on January 19 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Our gallery attendant, Bill Zell, will be discussing the Engle Monumental Clock.
The first known monumental clock made in the United States was the Engle Monumental Clock, finished in 1878. Taking 20 years to complete and marketed as “The Eighth Wonder of the World,” it measures 11 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 3 feet deep. For a clock of that size, you would suppose that it does more than just tell the time. You would not be wrong.
This presentation will include a full history of the clock, its creator and the restoration process. There will also be a full demonstration of the Engle clock with a thorough discussion of all its functions.
