Amusing! Reminds me of the Chronophage:


Note that the Wikipedia article is incorrect when it says the clock is
entirely mechanical: the clock depends on a computerized regulator which
is responsible for stopping the spring from over-driving the pendulum, and
for the erratic ticking, and for keeping it in sync with MSF every five

Forties, Cromarty: East, veering southeast, 4 or 5, occasionally 6 at first.
Rough, becoming slight or moderate. Showers, rain at first. Moderate or good,
occasionally poor at first.
