Possibly one of the rarest clocks out there in the clock collecting world is the Eureka. Estimates vary, but there could have been fewer than 10,000 ever produced. The clocks were also very expensive at the time and most people could not afford such an item. They are just facinating to watch. The large balance wheel, the same type used in wrist and pocket watches, is almost hypnotizing.
The clocks were made in several styles including wooden cases. I don't think these were as desireable though due to the fact that they hid the movement, which was the main draw of the clock.
This Eureka is in a gold plated crystal regulator style case. The clock is polished brass with a crack free porcelain dial. The steel hands retain their original blued finish.
Here are two short videos to show how the clock works,
