This is a Master Time Clock which was installed on the Ground Floor of Tower 1 at Rochester and it would have driven a number of Slave Clocks located around the site. The clock is a type 37 electrically controlled master clock having a 1 second beating pendulum. It provides 1 second, 6 second and half minute pulses for the operation of the slave pulse clocks. The RAA does not hold any of the original slave clocks. These clocks replaced the old mechanical clocks in the 1960's
The pendulum on its rod weighs about 5kg.
