Intriguing Chronometer

This is a timepiece that works off of a capstan, or spindle, power source. It strikes me as a particularly steampunk device, going out of its way to achieve a goal in a needlessly complicated manner! Notice how fractured the display of the time! It looks more like a surveyor’s instrument, or a kind of calculator.
