Yes! Yes! Yes! Something so many Ugears fans have been waiting for has finally made its appearance! We have lost count of how many times we got requests for an actual working wooden mechanical clock showing accurate time – and following all those requests our brightest engineering minds have delivered! It is with joy and pride that we present Ugears Aero Clock to you. This unique mechanical clock with a weighted pendulum demonstrates the precision of the gears. Just assemble it, mount it on a wall, wind it up and enjoy the passing of time!

Not only is it functional, but it also appeals to the fans of air travel. Back in 1783 the Montgolfier brothers first successfully flew a hot air balloon, which marked the beginning of the new era for the whole of humanity. Just two years later the English Channel saw its first hot air balloon crossing by an American John Jeffries and his co-pilot Jean-Pierre Blanchard. The world has achieved one of mankind’s fundamental dreams and it went far beyond mere amusement. It was the dawn of the new era of exploring the possibilities of flight, getting to know the power of winds and witnessing the majestic realm of the skies. As the seconds and minutes of the Aero clock tick away, the intricate wooden balloon slowly rises up, only to descend when the hour strikes.

Ugears steampunk Aero clock also honors the clockmakers and horologists. One prominent figure was John Harrison, whose clocks for ships were so accurate that they enabled the captains to at last determine their position at sea (by knowing the exact time in London and the time in their location, combined with the position of celestial bodies). Although the problem of discovering the vessel’s latitude had been solved as far back as 600 BC, it was the invention of the precise clock that finally did crack the problem of reliably establishing the longitude. It was for this that Mr. Harrison was awarded with a hefty reward (the Parliament’s Longitude Act of 1714). Follow the footsteps of such great explorers and inventors by assembling this wonderful DIY puzzle with your own hands!

How Ugears Aero Wall Clock Works

The clock features a weighted bag – which can be filled with salt, grains or sand – which is pulled down by the force of gravity, the driving force behind the movement of the clock. In order to wind the clock, simply raise the bag on its pulleys. The slowly descending weight makes the drive gear rotate. This puts the escape wheel in motion (through a reducer). The anchor mechanism connects the escape wheel with an adjustable weighted pendulum. Sliding the bottom and top weights of the pendulum lets you adjust the ticking action of the clock to the second. The hour disc and minute discs are also put in motion by a reducer.

Curiously, a fixed pointer indicates time on the rotating, numbered hour and minute discs rather than rotating hands on a clock face. Interesting fact: the hands of some early clocks moved counterclockwise, while others moved clockwise. Then standardization came along to cement the principles we are familiar with today.

The state-of-the-art Aero Clock from Ugears is waiting for you!

    I have built the Stagecoach, Semi Tractor, Train Engines, and several other models from UGears and always wanted to build a clock, so when the Aero Wall Clock was available, I got the model. Building the clock was a little difficult at times but by taking my time it went together very easy and everything fit well without having to make any modifications and the best part about building the clock was that it really ran. I liked building it so much that I ordered one and had it sent to my Nephew for him to build and also everybody that comes to my house really likes seeing the clock run. I will continue to build models from UGears.

    What a cool way to feel like a clockmaker!

    This product is absolutely worth it. I\'ve had a ton of fun putting it together, and it\'s been very fascinating to learn how a clock works in real time as I\'m actively building one! The instructions can be a bit vague at times, and it definitely helps that this isn\'t my first woodworking/construction project. If you\'ve played with LEGOs before, this is a very similar experience (just with more of that lovely wood smell you get from working in a wood shop). If you see anything in the uGears catalogue that you\'d like to look at in your home, and you have a bit of extra money, I highly recommend.

    Time for a clock!

    I would recommend this to a friend!
    I was given this Aero Wall Clock as a requested Christmas gift. I had never done a UGears project before, so when I opened the instruction book, I quickly ordered an easy project, The Steampunk Clock, to familiarize myself with the project. I highly recommend doing an easier project first!!!! I have been amazed at the detail and accuracy of the laser-cut parts! The fit of each is outstanding, even the smallest of parts are detailed and intricately cut. The instructions require...... Patience, at the least. Not the best 1/2/3 tutorial I\'ve seen... Prepare yourself for a challenge! I\'ve finished the project, celebrated the achievement, but so far can\'t get the darned thing to work. The instructions don\'t really have a troubleshooting section, so, we\'ll see... I\'m sure I\'ll get it going as advertised, somehow, and it looks amazing on the wall! Unfortunately, all the \"cabling\" are interior, and not easily accessible for re-working... so I may have done Step 27 wrong, and realized it at the Final Step 2439, with no easy Fix. Otherwise, an amazing project!

    Great clock!

    When I opened the package, I was unsure of what to expect. Some parts of the build were relatively easy while other parts were very challenging. Even the tools needed to complete the project are made of wood! Getting the balloon to fall properly was somewhat difficult. Everything is working now though. I am impressed by the precision of the parts and that no glue (as in zero) is needed to build the clock. This was a great project and will provide enjoyment into the future. I highly recommend this project for someone with patience and model building experience.

    Although putting together this model has been extremely difficult it has been very satisfying. Just what I was looking for to use my hands and brain.

    Purchased this for my husband as he has done a few UGEARS models. He enjoyed doing this clock. It hangs on our living room wall and we both enjoy watching the balloon drop!

    long term interest
    Ugears Aero Wall Clock
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    I have built several UGears kits and love them all but this kit has provided the most challenge. Of all of them, the Aero Clock provides long term interest and utility since it needs daily attention. To add to the challenge, I decided to paint this one (with Sharpie style flow pens) and I think that came out well. In 6 months now I have not tired of lifting the weight and playing with it to zero in its accuracy.

    Pendulum clock

    Fun to build if you can work with IKEA style directions. Nice looking when done, but I can\'t get the pendulum to work. Directions say to put 4.4 pounds of sand in the weight bag, it will only hold about 3 pounds.

    All my life I have enjoyed working with my hands. made a lot of interesting things - model cars, rockets, general woodworking. I found this to be a very fun kit to put together. If you have ever built anything with directions from Ikea, this is right up your alley. The only problem I had was with the rubber bands on the wheels for the balloon drop. The monofilament kept getting caught in the sides. Took them off and it works just fine without them.
