A Horological Peacock Feeding . . . Or? Caption Competition #35 | Quill & Pad

Believe it or not, this adapted peacock pecking at a bowl loaded with ears of wheat is really a completely practical horological component. The “bowl” is a cam, while the peacock controls the momentary second time region hop instrument of the Fabergé DTZ Visionnaire .

But what other story may clarify what’s going on here? Could it really be another avian star grouping in the night sky? If it’s not too much trouble, share your thoughts in the comments below.

Congratulations to imageWIS for his “Star Trek” inscription, highlighting Scotty not being a watchmaker subtitle in a week ago’s inscription competition. Don’t miss that and all of a week ago’s fantastic sections, including David’s remarkable Iain M. Banks “Culture” spaceship reference , at Surely Created By Extraterrestrials: Caption Competition #34 .
