"Excuse me, what time is it?" Time to start your Ugears 3D puzzle collection! The simple but elegant Steampunk Clock from Ugears is the perfect gateway to a fun new hobby: building Ugears models and 3D puzzles. Victorian-inflected Steampunk style combines art, science, and amazing mechanics, so naturally it's an aesthetic we embrace at Ugears! This mini wooden mechanical clock model embodies the essence of Steampunk style, with spinning gears, moving minute and hour hands on a clock face, and zany antique design with celestial motifs. Take a walk back in time as you build this homage to Victorian timepieces.
The open design of the Steampunk Clock allows you to see the model's gearing in action. Check out the 90-degree angle coupling, and the unsynchronized clock hands moving on the same axle, each at their own pace. This DIY wooden table clock model features delicate carving throughout the body and lace-like ornamentation, including floral designs and sun, stars, and moon motifs. To set the Steampunk Clock in motion just turn the gears at the base and watch your clock come to life! All Ugears mechanical models move without batteries or electricity, and assemble without glue.
The Steampunk Clock is rated "Easy" and has only 43 pieces, which makes it the perfect starter model for those who are new to the fascinating world of Ugears mechanical models, 3D puzzles, puzzle boxes, mechanoids and automatons. But even experienced modelers will want this attractive 3D puzzle for their collection. The model is made of high-quality composite wood, has a pleasant wooden scent, and looks great on the shelf.
To assemble this DIY wooden clock model, just punch the pieces out of their laser pre-cut boards and snap them together, following the detailed, illustrated instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Italian, Chinese and Korean). Everything you need to assemble your Steampunk Clock model kit comes in the box, including sandpaper and wax. No glue or special tools are required. Be sure to lightly sand and lubricate all moving parts for optimal clock function.
Start a wonderful new hobby when you purchase the Steampunk Clock by Ugears, or buy it for a friend and introduce them to the magical world of Ugears mechanical models. The Steampunk Clock is a wonderful gift idea, for any age or ability, and a fun family project. Parents and grandparents can enjoy helping children develop their mechanical competence and learn basic principles of science and engineering by building Ugears 3D puzzles. Upon completion you have a fun toy to play with together, and the satisfaction of having built something together. The Steampunk Clock is also an elegant display piece for your home or office.
Once you have had success building your Steampunk Clock you'll be ready to take on bigger challenges from the Ugears catalogue, including robots, cars and trains, or educational STEM Lab models. You could even move up to building actual working clock models like the Ugears Aero Clock wall clock with pendulum, and the Skywatcher Tourbillon Table Clock—DIY wooden clock models that keep accurate time. Start small and dream big!
