This clock is a one-off. It will be the only one ever created of this design.

The main feature of this piece is the moon-dial, which displays the phases of the moon. It also features a very long 32 day power reserve, so you’ll only need to wind the weight back to the top once-per-month.

The light-brown surfaces are made of weathered and oil-treated kitikata rice-paper. The moon is also kitikata paper (thus the title) and the face was painted by hand with oil paint.

All of the components in this timepiece were sculpted from scratch.

Personalize: There is a nice spot on the left "fin shape" that can be used to add something custom and personal to the piece if you're interested.

Dimensions: 16” wide x 46” tall x 6” deep. Height does not include pendulum or weight.

Technical information:
“Paper Moon” has a weight-driven mechanical movement with an accurate dead-beat escapement. The gears are visible, and the movement of the escape wheel can be easily viewed. The pendulum swings with a familiar one-second beat, and the rate is easily adjustable by the user to achieve accuracy. The weight that powers the movement is accompanied by a maintaining-power assembly. This allows the clock to continue ticking during the winding process, so that it doesn’t miss a beat.

Dimensions: 16” wide x 46” tall x 6” deep. Height does not include pendulum or weight.

Delivery:
Delivery is included in the cost. If you live in the U.S. I can arrange to personally set the piece up for you, and answer any questions you may have about care and maintenance. Clear and detailed instructions will be provided to accommodate recipients outside of the U.S. and those who prefer to set the piece up themselves.

ATTENTION - While it is possible to purchase this piece here through paypal, it’s preferable that you contact me to set up a payment method more suitable for large transactions.

Feel free to contact me if you would like any more information about this piece, or if you would like to set up a viewing to see it in person.
