David Walter is the first person to
successfully recreate the Woodward Free pendulum clock, W5 in 2006
followed by an improved edition of Breguet No.3671 Double Pendulum clock
in 2010 and further development in 2012 added the complications of
Daniels Perpetual calendar with retrograde date and sunrise/sunset
indications. These great achievements firmly place David Walter not only
as one of the greatest clockmakers ever to have lived and the greatest living clockmaker
as well as the only clockmaker to have ever made both versions of
double pendulum clock, The Free Pendulum (D)W5 and the Double Pendulum
And what would you say if I tell you that David Walter is an Aussie?
Quite frankly, I was hoping for and would be more than happy with a
fifteen minute chat with David. Generously and kindly, he allocated over
two hours to share with us his amazing story.
