Time Globe, c. 1880
The globe clock is rotated on a twenty-four hour basis by means of a round clockwork movement mounted inside the paper mâché globe. Local time is shown by the hands at the top of the nickel plated Meriden Ring.
The clock is wound by turning the feather end of the arrow running through the globe's axis. Time anywhere on earth is indicated on the equatorial ring. Juvet produced both terrestrial and celestial globes.
