Wow! An astonishing piece of craftsmanship built in Switzerland in the 1700's by Pierre Jaquet-Droz.
This is quite an impressive creation and I had to share it with you all.



I love antiques! If anyone wishes to share their love of these historical treasures, please do so.

That is absolutely amazing! I didn't know such a thing existed!

Creepy, yet wonderful.

That is awesome. I'd never heard of such a thing, amazing how brilliant people were back then.

What a telling piece of machinery that is. For the time the maker was a genius.

Precursor to "Chucky"!


Kind regards,

Got to 'hand' it you. I liked to 'watch' that.

'Second' line.

Wait a 'minute' it's 'time' out for 'hour' dad jokes. I might get 'band'. Quite 'alarm'ing really. Better 'Clock' off now. People might get "tick'ed off getting 'wound' up. Now I'm 'winding' up.

Kind regards, loved the watch.
