UGears Steampunk Clock Building Kit
Recommended age for self-build is 14, but we love the idea of building one of the with dad or grandpa!
The UGears Steampunk Clock unites the wonder of 3D puzzles with steampunk. Steampunk is all about combining historical elements with science, mechanics and art. It is both a fashion and a genre. In the spirit of steampunk, you can have your own decorative trinket to show off your love for all things science and mechanics.
This model imitates a clock, and it is a beautiful, intricately designed imitation with a delicate body. It contains a mechanism that provides motion to the gears and allows for movement of the clock hands. Once built, this model will contain floral designs, stars, the sun and the moon. These beautiful lace-like ornaments will add a unique flair to your desk, table or wherever you plan to display the model as a centerpiece.
The gearing in the model has an original 90-degree angle coupling. You can witness this coupling when the mechanism is in use. Another point of interest is the implementation of the asynchronous clock hands! Each hand moves at its own pace while sitting upon the same axle. This creates a point of interest and a curious visual element.
If you are new to 3D puzzles, then this model is for you. While it may offer you a challenge, it only takes about one hour to construct. In terms of level of difficulty, it is considered easy to assemble. If you are new to UGears, this may be the best place for you to start. Not only does it provide you with a stunning first addition to your collection, but it is easier for beginners to understand. You do not want to begin with puzzles that may be too difficult or frustrating at first. However, even if you are an expert, you will still appreciate the beautiful, delicate design of this clock.
The model itself is designed with eco-friendly wood and has a lovely woodsy scent that greets you when you open the package. Do not worry about purchasing any extra tools; the kit comes with everything that you need. The entire kit comes in the box, and you don't need to use glue or any other adhesive in when assembling the model. The pieces create a completely functional model. Additionally, if any pieces are missing or damaged, you can have them replaced by UGears to ensure a complete puzzle.
If you love steampunk or mechanics, this is a beautiful model for you or your family to enjoy. Whether you want the clock for yourself or wish to introduce a friend to the fun world of mechanics, there is nothing more satisfying than assembling a 3D puzzle from UGears.
