Da Vinci Collection Rolling Ball Timer Model Kit
Whether you’re looking for the ultimate gift for the lover of invention and scale models or simply looking for a unique addition to your own shelf or desktop, this DaVinci Collection Rolling Ball Timer will dazzle anyone with its stunning design and beautiful demonstration of nature and man-made mechanics.
The Ball Timer is based on an old sketch by Leonardo DaVinci himself, of an escapement mechanism. It uses the principles of both kinetics and gravity in order to measure time. It does this using gears that power the see-saw motion which in turn propels the rolling ball.
This collector's item also comes complete in a delicate box in order to display your latest creation once it’s finished, whether that’s on the collector’s shelf or even sat proudly on your desk space.
