Daruma Clock だるま時計

A clock with a pendulum, that makes a little noise. And at the full hour, there is a melody. These clocks were introduced to Japan in the Meiji period.
Very soon, Japanese made their own clocks, with Japanese material. For example, the golden metal parts were made from wood and laquer.

shaku dokei 尺時計  Pillar clock



quote   
Pillar clock
Beginning in 1844 the calendar was revised to provide differing hour lengths for different parts of the year. Japanese clocks used various mechanisms to display the changing temporal hours. The most practical way was with a pillar clock, where the clock indicated time not on a clock face, but on an indicator attached to a weight that descended in a track. Movable time indicators ran alongside the track of the weight and its attached indicator. These indicators could be adjusted for the seasons to show the length of the day and nighttime hours. When the clock was wound, the indicator was moved back up the track to the appropriate marker.
This setup had the advantage of being independent of the rate of the clock itself.
