Ship Clock Automaton 1585
Part of the new Clocks exhibit at the British museum.
I have a love of old clocks and automatons. This one is supposed to actually move across the table while the figures on the ship move to and fro. Fantastic!

c. 1585. Mechanical medieval galleon intended to announce banquets at court. The entertainment began with music from a miniature organ in the hull, drumming and a procession. Afterward the ship would travel across the table. When it stopped the front cannon would fire.
Вот эти часы-автоматон в хорошем изображении нигде не могу найти!

The figure on the throne is the Holy Roman Emperor. A procession of seven Electors (princes) pass before him during the music, preceded by three heralds. At the base of the main mast a small clock shows the time. Sailors in the crow's nest use hammers to strike hours and quarters.
