Suspended in a bubble block of Baccarat crystal and powered by temperature change, Jaeger LeCoultre's Atmos 561 mechanical clock has been designed by Marc Newson. The Atmos 561 clocks don't need to be wound up. they get all the energy to run from small temperature changes in the encapsulated environment, and can run for years without human intervention. Its power source is a hermetically sealed capsule containing a mixture of gas and liquid ethyl chloride, which expands into an expansion chamber as the temperature rises, compressing a spiral spring; with a fall in temperature the gas condenses and the spring slackens. This motion constantly winds the mainspring. A variation in temperature of only one degree in the range between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius is sufficient for two days' operation. Cool!!

The Digimech-Clock by Duncan Schotton. "The sliders are gradually cranked up in accurate time. Upon reaching the last number (e.g. the 9th minute) the same servo disengages the ratchets 'stopper' and the slider then falls to the first number again. The slider positions are controlled by 3 JR servos which are regulated with a PIC16F628 microcontroller. Each servo interacts with a ratchet and pawl which are linked to the pinion which drives the slider mounted rack." Check out see the Digimech clock in action.
