The winding is an automated Wagner type remontoire rewound via a miniature DC motor. The operation of the winding every few minutes adds to the kinetic visual aspect of the work. The double ended pendulum beats 2 seconds providing an easy cadence.
The escapement is a sculptural variation on the Grasshopper escapement invented by the British clockmaker John Harrison around 1722 and used in several of his famous sea clocks.
