Yowza, this simple looking mantle clock had quite a bit of complex thought behind it. Containers of alcohol are heated and the pressurized vapor pushes liquid in a connecting pipe to another container, which then gets heavier, evantually causing more stuff to move. More dieselpunk than steam (well, acutally it is alcohol steam), but utterly fascinating. markf

Another intersting clock setup is the Atmos clock that uses termperature variations to power the movement...
Atmos Clocks

I've seen a few of these, and they are quite fascinating beats. Pricey, starting at around $3000 or so, and then going up as they get fancier.. Most expensive? A one of a kind in gold and platinum, by LeCoultre, priced at a cool 1 million US...
