Miyazaki Steampunk Clock at NTV Shiodome, Tokyo.
This steampunk themed clock designed by the famous Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli is the largest animated clock in the world. The clock was completed in December 2006 after a design period of over four years.
The enormous copper clock is 12 metres high, 18 metres wide, and has extensive animations timed to music including firing steam cannon, moving figures, and moving legs like Howls Moving Castle.
The clock was built by sculptor Shachimaru Kunio who also built the giant Laputa robot on the rooftop of the Ghibli museum. Miyazaki said that he wanted to make something that would be loved by future generations that would last beyond his animated characters.
D Mattocks’ monster creation is apparently 8ft tall. It’s unclear what operating system lies beneath, but the sheer amount of dials, taps, pipes and those glowing radioactive signs at the bottom are enough to make any Steampunk fan weak at the knees.

These goggles have a green base coat with a distressed silver finish and nickel colored extension rings on each eye cup which are secured by chrome acorn nuts. A vacuum tube is fastened to the left eyepiece with gears and metallic coiling mounted to each as well. They Include 2- 50 mm clear lenses, 2-50 mm shade 3 green lenses, 2- 2" steel mesh inserts, and an elastic head strap. One of a kind. Thanks for viewing.
The work of Cory Barkman. Industrial revolution furniture, sculpture, and design. Not your standard Steampunk, indeed.
